12 Days of Giving, Day 7: A New Asset Management Workbook

On the seventh day of our 12 Days of Giving, we’re bringing you a brand new ServiceNow ITAM Workbook!

No Digital Transformation would be complete without a look at how the physical side of business meshes with the digital. This ebook will walk you through the steps of implementing a new Asset Management system–for software and hardware alike. We’re also sharing with you solutions to some of the most common challenges companies run into with Asset Management.

Let’s jump into a sneak peek at some of the ITAM insights you’ll be treated to in this workbook…

Welcome to Your ServiceNow Asset Management Workbook

According to IDC, more than $3 trillion has been invested in digital transformation over the last three years. But, too much of that money has been funneled into IT point solutions that have failed to meet the needs of your modern enterprise. Needs like reducing IT spending, being more efficient, and seamlessly interacting with customers and employees. In order to combat skyrocketing SaaS and cloud spending and legacy systems, organizations are looking for a better way – a more efficient way – of managing their IT assets. ServiceNow’s IT Asset Management (ITAM) is a key part of integrating a business’s physical processes with its digital system, allowing not only for seamless tracking of assets but also opportunities for cost and time-saving efficiency for nearly every business. In fact, when it comes to some of the top challenges that lead to expensive, unexpected IT asset management costs, we’ve identified how ServiceNow ITAM can help.

Example Problem: Increased exposure to applications, business services, and license risks. Maintaining legacy apps requires a large number of mind-numbing manual processes. This hits IT in the wallet; all that high-cost labor takes the focus away from innovation and growth. Unfortunately, the looming chance of an expensive audit is just too great to ignore. Large unbudgeted settlements from those audits definitely negatively impact the bottom line and distract from the opportunity to focus on innovating for the top line.

Example Solution: Automated IT asset management workflows–augmented with machine learning and AI–can expertly identify and mitigate unneeded cloud spend, report on unused or misused software licenses, and keep on top of lost or aging-out hardware.

What else?

What makes this workbook, well, a workbook is that we give you leading questions and rubrics for everything from identifying your key stakeholders to grading your asset management readiness. So the only question now is, are you ready to get started?
