The ITIL Asset Management challenge
Managing thousands of IT assets within your organization – from desktops, laptops, mobile devices, servers, and network devices, to software, contracts, and maintenance agreements – is a difficult task. Business environments today are too complex and sophisticated to manage with a traditional spreadsheet and manual entry approach. The multi-departmental asset and inventory tool methods are time consuming and expensive. With the New York release, ServiceNow Software Asset Management Professional tightly integrates with BigFix so customers can now create a robust single threaded method to manage both software and hardware assets.
