Organizations invest considerably in their IT assets that include hardware and software components such as PCs, servers, network devices, accessories, software licenses, system upgrades, and in-house developed software. To safeguard their investment, they need to know how and where the assets are used, how much they cost the company, what value they provide, and how they change over time.
