Provance Methodology and Best Practice Framework Ensures IT Asset Management Success
Provance® today announced the general availability of its Methodology and Best Practice Framework for IT Asset Management. Exclusive to customers and partners of Provance under license, this compilation of IT Asset Management Processes, Best Practices and Deployment Materials was first launched in the popular Provance Educational Series in the fall of 2012. The Framework provides organizations with a roadmap to use Provance methodologies aligned with the IT Infrastructure Library (ITIL®), the Microsoft® Software Asset Management Optimization Model and ISO/IEC 19770-1 best practices and guidelines.
"ITAM is a journey, not a destination," said VP of Sales and Alliances, Kelly Moodie. "The biggest challenges facing organizations implementing IT and Software Asset Management programs are a lack of documented processes and understanding of best practices. With over 15 years of experience in IT Asset Management, we've designed and developed a unique approach that we've successfully used to ensure one successful customer story after another."
Private and government organizations worldwide operating within today's economic, technological and litigious climates have increasingly turned to IT Asset Management (ITAM) and subcategories Hardware Asset Management (HAM) and Software Asset Management (SAM) to control the cost of hardware throughout the lifecycle and increase service management efficiencies, while also decreasing the risks associated with software license compliance.
A privately held company since 1997, Provance has designed, developed and delivered IT Asset Management solutions and services to hundreds of customers and partners spanning over 26 countries in industries such as Energy, Finance, Education, Government, Manufacturing and Health.
For companies that have adopted Microsoft System Center 2012 to manage traditional data centers, private and public clouds, and client computers and devices, the Provance process management packs allow their existing IT management infrastructure and current licensing to be easily and inexpensively leveraged to achieve the additional business benefits of IT Asset Management.
