IT Asset Management (ITAM)
Discover all your enterprise’s assets wherever they are
IT Asset Management (ITAM) transforms technology data into actionable intelligence, empowering IT to effectively manage, govern and optimize their hybrid IT estate. With the right asset data, you can discover software and hardware, reduce risk and spend through optimization and control shadow IT.
IT Asset Management Capabilities
Move beyond workflows
Eliminate spreadsheet chaos and decrease service tickets
Proactive management of technology requires more than workflows. Workflows aren’t going to find missing hardware or calculate license positions for complex software like Microsoft SQL Server, IBM Cloud Paks or Oracle Middleware. Along with automation, you need rich intelligence about how products are licensed, priced and are being used. Flexera automatically calculates your effective license position so you can eliminate spreadsheets and workflows that kick off manual processes.
Contracts, renewals, leases
Negotiate based on facts
Let’s face it: software and hardware contracts are opaque. It’s hard to know what all the use rights really mean and how you’re going to stay in compliance or avoid fines. With Flexera One, you’ll have the visibility and insights you need to rightsize contractual agreements and optimize renewals. Flexera’s extensive product use rights libraries, with more than two million entries, enable you to report your effective license position and take the complexity out of vendor agreements. You don’t need to be a lawyer or mathematician to have the upper hand anymore.
Use what you have, buy only what you need
With technology spend efficiency, you can find unused, under-used and redundant technology in your environment so you can meet demand with your existing supply. Flexera One’s automated reclamation process removes unused software, so you don’t buy more when you already have unused inventory. Flexera One’s IT Asset Management software automates the IT asset lifecycle so you can quickly find assets that are available, in storage, up for renewal, or coming off lease/warranty. By gaining visibility into underutilized assets, you have the insights to negotiate contracts and control IT spend based on actual usage.
Manage risk proactively
Sail through vendor and regulatory audits
ITAM is the first line of defense as vendor audits, regulatory compliance and security threats dominate your risk exposure. With consistent, clean, complete and accurate data, you avoid messy vendor and compliance audits. When you're informed about what is in the environment, you can quickly determine your level of financial and security exposure. When the auditors come knocking, you’ll have all the information you need to fend them off and avoid unbudgeted audit expenses.
Gain visibility and insight into your hybrid IT environment
Wherever you are in your digital transformation journey, Flexera One gives you real-time insights on your IT assets that need to be modernized, migrated or retired. Make better decisions with a unified view of your IT landscape across on-premises, SaaS and cloud. Now you can focus on aligning IT with the business and use the power of your IT assets to transform your technology portfolio effectively.

IT asset management that makes the exponential manageable
Obtain a clear SaaS picture to rein in spend
ServiceNow, Salesforce, Workday, Microsoft. What if you could shave off even a few percentage points from your SaaS costs for all of them? With Flexera One, you get a current and complete picture of SaaS usage to support your business stakeholders while optimizing SaaS spend with all your vendors. Flexera One enables you to take action by discovering shadow SaaS, removing redundant applications and optimizing subscriptions based on actual usage automatically.
Optimize software from on-prem to cloud
Your software portfolio is quickly expanding into private and public clouds with BYOSL. At the same time, Microsoft is creating hybrid use rights and IBM is offering Cloud Paks. And we thought capacity-based licensing in the data center was hard. You need more than a workflow to optimize your software spend and mitigate audit risks—that’s where Flexera One comes in. Unlike other software asset management tools out there, Flexera One is the only SAM solution to solve the exponentiality of licensing. It possesses the depth, breadth, algorithms and automation required to truly create a trusted and accurate license position.
Establish the guardrails for automated governance
Your employees are a click and a credit card charge away from bringing new technologies into your business. With Flexera One’s capabilities, you can proactively reduce the sprawl and provide end users with a catalog of approved software, SaaS and cloud instances–helping you get them within guard rails while enabling the business to be agile and innovative. If they aren’t using what they buy, you can reclaim it to avoid future costs. And Flexera One integrates with ITSM providers so you can meet users where they are and provide a seamless end-user experience.
Maximize your hardware investments no matter where they are
The remote workforce brought on new challenges and amplified the need for hardware asset management. Flexera Ones helps you make critical hardware lifecycle decisions to support user productivity, business continuity and make the most of your hardware investments. Enabling you to manage the hardware you own or lease, no matter where it is.
