Organizations are always looking for more efficient and cost-effective ways to manage their assets. The continued growth of disruptive technologies in the environment makes handling assets a major challenge on a good day. And the need to address changes quickly exacerbates the issue.
Many workers have recently transitioned to working remotely; this adds complexity to the task of effectively monitoring the use of software and SaaS applications. The volume of requests to scale usage up and down is increasing. The reaction to these changes and requests must be swift because time is of the essence. In addition to utilization, organizations must monitor their responses to these requests because the fulfillment of them impacts the terms and conditions of their licenses. And organizations must also remain in compliance based on their entitlements.
These obstacles impact the bottom line—you’re still tasked with addressing any costs associated with these changes. And all these challenges all at once can cause major disruptions to organizations that leverage manual processes. The key is IT automation. Automating these processes can help you gain visibility into all your assets, so you can control resources effectively while reducing costs and maintaining compliance.
With IT automation you can:
- Manage all your software licenses and entitlements from a single view
- Control the utilization of software licenses and subscription spend effectively
- Reclaim any underutilized assets to reduce costs
- Gain visibility into any assets at risk so you can react to the business without being audited
You need a single source of truth in a challenging environment. Now more than ever, it’s important to have a grasp of your resources, how they’re being used and where you have areas of risk. Directing resources across geographically-dispersed regions and teams doesn’t have to be stressful, especially when you automate your IT processes and provide everyone with a single view.
Look into IT Automation today so you can more effectively manage your business during this time of major disruption.
