Ivanti Simplifies Management of IT Assets, Contracts and Compliance with Ivanti Asset Manager Essentials

Pre-Built, Cloud-Based IT Asset Management Solution Delivers High Value at a Low Cost

Ivanti, the company that unifies IT to better manage and secure the digital workplace, today announced the release of Ivanti Asset Manager Essentials. A pre-built IT asset management (ITAM) solution running in the cloud, Asset Manager Essentials is a cost-effective option for organizations that need a fast route to comprehensive management of IT assets, at any phase of their lifecycle, across the enterprise.

“Asset management can be a complex, costly and time-consuming endeavor,” said†Ian Aitchison, Senior Product Director, Ivanti. “If performed without accuracy, however, it can also cost companies dearly in unnecessary procurement expenses during an asset refresh. From tracking the assets you have and knowing where they are at all times, to better managing risk, contractual compliance, regulatory concerns, and improved security, our new Asset Manager Essentials provides the visibility companies need without the complexity, time or cost.”

Built for a rapid time to value, the cloud-based Asset Manager Essentials features:

  • Out-of-the-box reports and dashboards†to make asset management simple – from procurement and purchase order to receipt, deployment, and disposal.
  • Powerful asset data importing capabilities†which provide prebuilt support for discovery sources including Ivanti Endpoint Manager, Ivanti Data Center Discovery, and barcode scans. This enables Asset Manager Essentials users to benefit from automatically populated consolidated asset data, easily compare actual and discovered asset values and generate exception reports for simplified alignment and reconciliation of asset location discrepancies.
  • Barcode scanning and management†that allows for asset data retrieval via a barcode scan in environments that use barcoded assets.

Asset Manager Essentials helps optimize asset purchases, lowering the total cost of ownership while simplifying budget management and forecasting. Further supporting vendor contract compliance, the solution anticipates contract renewal dates while helping to calculate and track asset age and value for the refresh process. To simplify business user requests, it also provides a product catalog of authorized items, each with robust inventory tracking and controls, thus speeding onboarding and provisioning activities while reducing service desk calls.

“Ochsner was impressed with the foundation design of the new Asset Manager Essentials Product,” said†Stephen Engel, IS Asset Manager, CHAMP, SAM, Ochsner Health System. “It is built upon the Ivanti Service Manager Platform and leverages an ITIL Configuration Item (CI) within a Service CMDB. We imported 30,000 hardware assets to review asset lifecycle data. Ochsner is expecting to leverage Asset Manager Essentials to improve the maturity of our ITAM Program.”

Available now, Ivanti Asset Manager Essentials is built on the Ivanti Service Manager cloud platform and features a mature user interface and a strong platform for growth. The solution also supports unified IT operations with blended integration with Ivanti Service Manager capabilities for service management that improves support capabilities and raises end-user satisfaction.
