Baseline Creation and Maintenance

 

IT inventory baseline creation and maintenance are the heartbeat of any successful compliance, cost or risk management program. To effectively enable these initiatives, an organization must shed their historical or archeological-like approaches to ITAM, and become a strategic aid in IT Cost Optimization.

Before such an evolution can proceed, the organization must understand its true inventory of software and hardware, and its business-as-usual expenses. Once existing costs are understood, the metrics for those costs need to be defined, in order to understand what must change if those costs are to be reduced. This short video details how Asset Vision from Scalable enables organizations to create that full IT baseline to support SAM and related programs.
