Real-time view of technology assets needed as the data centre...

by News, Friday 17 May 2019

Recent survey data shows that over 80 per cent of technology asset decision-makers reveal a lack of technology asset management is a key business issue for the C-suite.

This comes from Nlyte Software, who offer solutions for managing computing infrastructure. The data also shows that almost a third (31%) of organisations are still tracking this manually.

The study, delivered by Sapio Research, found that almost two thirds (61%) of business leaders see a need for a real-time view of their technology and software assets. With over a third (37%) believing they could save 20 per cent of their budget by remediating underutilised software, and 39 per cent stating they could save their IT delivery teams six to ten per cent time in daily business operations – but only if they had a real-time view of the situation.

It’s all about the risk Despite the apparent priority, the motivating factor behind the decision to implement asset control across the entire technology stack is most likely to come from a cybersecurity breach, according to 29 per cent of respondents. And there are stark differences between how managers and senior teams see this as a priority, with C-suite respondents believing that assets are being scanned hourly (27%) or daily (35%): yet those at manager level are less confident (8% and 28% respectively).

Further findings from the research

61 per cent told us that a real-time view of technology and software assets would enhance their IT innovation to support their business goals. Yet, only 45 per cent said that their assets are validated daily (30% do this weekly).

50 per cent are tracking assets in their data centre - at least a majority (62 per cent) are doing so for desktop and laptops.

78 per cent of the global respondents claimed that up to 20 per cent of their assets remain undetected from network scans.

On average 67 per cent of devices have the latest security software and firmware patches, less than half (49%) have a solution that scans and validates all devices; 48 per cent of devices are not proactively managed at all.

36 per cent of C-suite aren’t tracking their edge assets - where the risk of intrusion is highest.

Technology Asset Management

Several of the learnings from this research showed that large organisations as a whole have no agreement on a clear vision of what their asset management strategy is for. A lightweight, agentless technology based solution, like TAM, that isn’t limited to certain vendor platforms or industry protocols removes these headaches. Such a solution allows for the discovery of any and all types of technology assets, compute, storage, network, software, firmware, IoT and more.
