Finding a provider for effective asset management for a technology group

How an international technology group introduced effective asset management with our CyberCompare Matching

The goal of IT asset management is to maximize the business value of software and hardware assets. By definition, asset management also includes inventory and financing, as well as contract, license, and risk management. All of these functions offer opportunities to gain efficiencies that not every company has yet exploited for itself.

 

 

Procedure

An international technology company did not yet have an asset inventory, monitoring or asset management in the OT area. Furthermore, the company had a heterogeneous system landscape of IT, OT and IoT. Although there was a need for an asset management tool, there was no budget approval yet. In the first step, we started with the development of an individual requirements catalog. In the second step, we researched potentially suitable service providers for the specific requirements of the company. We evaluated individual providers along 8 criteria, which took into account, for example, the usability of the UX/UI, the simplicity of implementation and the price-performance ratio. In the third step, we created an anonymous RFQ among potentially suitable service providers. In the fourth step, we developed a comprehensive management document so that IT managers could obtain budget approval.

Result

IT managers were able to win over the management team through clearer transparency and obtain budget approval. In addition, a suitable offer was identified with our support. However, our service did not end after the provider selection. We are currently supporting the implementation of the asset management tool.
