IT Asset Management

Discover all your enterprise’s assets wherever they are

IT asset management (ITAM) starts with knowing what you have in your IT ecosystem. Flexera One discovers even the most elusive hardware and software across environments like SaaS, cloud, containers, clusters and virtual technologies. Flexera One’s discovery is optimized for today’s digital business and finds evidence required to determine license consumption, such as IBM sub-capacity requirements. Now you can plug your inventory gaps so you’ll have the power to negotiate effectively with IBM, Oracle, SAP, Microsoft and ServiceNow. 

The most important piece from asset management automation approach is the discovery of the assets.

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.

Top 5 ITAM Contracts by Value Graph

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 insight 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.

Usage data

Use what you have, buy only what you need

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.
