Must be able to verify asset existence How do we know that assets are still in use? Which assets have been disposed of or lost/stolen? Asset records need to be complete How do we make sure that all purchased IT assets are included in the financial statements? Need to understand rights and obligations Which IT assets are owned or leased or rented? Are we in compliance with license agreements? MGT315

6 The Asset Management Problem
What assets do we have and where are they? How do we know this is a complete list ? How do we prove that assets still exist ? How many assets are on order, in the store room, out for repair? What was the original cost, how much are they worth now? When should we consider replacing them? Who owns them? Who is responsible for them? When did we buy them? Are they still supported? When does the warranty run out? We leased these right? When does the lease run out? Where did my software come from? Is it licensed? I see Acme software on my system, but did it get installed from my vendor copy, or from a copy someone bought at my local computer store? OK – I figured out what Acme is, and how it’s installed – but how much does my vendor think I own? MGT315

SCCM metering agent will inventory the last time any executable was running in the user context. Data returned through hardware inventory. Additional reports will help you answer the “When was the last time this was used?” question. Auto-created Metering Rules: Last Usage Inventory can be used to auto-create full metering rules which you can decide to enable. Simplifies the process of creating metering rules. Asset Change Summarization: A summary of changes to computer assets is stored in a central table. Managing deltas help reduce the complexity of asset management. Additional reports help you answer the “What has changed recently in my environment?” question. Client Access Licenses usage tracking for Microsoft Windows and Exchange: Both User and Device CALs usage is tracked. Based on Security audit logs. Additional reports answer the “who used up the CALs” , “when did they do that” questions.
