While traditional IT asset management (ITAM) may have worked well when IT assets were more static and less directly relevant to business performance, a new approach is needed in the dynamic age of cloud, agile and digital transformation. Next-generation asset management works hand-in-glove with IT service management and operations to optimize IT assets as performing entities relative to value and usage rather than simply idle assets purely managed for cost.
