Who is IT Asset Manager?

Who is IT Asset Manager?

The Information Technology (IT) Asset Manager is responsible to take a detailed inventory of the organization's software, hardware and integration assets, etc. IT Asset Manager is also responsible for implementing the information collected to make the best decision regarding IT-related acquisitions and redistribution.

The IT Asset Manager creates the strategic management of all IT assets and the planning of workflow tasks. The IT asset manager manages everything from digital assets to cloud services and is also responsible for the commissioning and operational functions of the IT asset management system.

What is the IT Asset Manager's Job Description? 

An IT Asset Manager, whether in a small business or a large organization, is tasked with avoiding unnecessary asset purchases and eliminating waste by making the most of existing IT asset resources and increase productivity. The job description of an IT Asset Manager with various tasks within the company may vary depending on the structure of a business occasionally. However, there are some typical and immutable tasks that are in the IT manager's job description. These tasks can be divided into groups mainly in the form of planning and purchasing, project management, providing technical support, and managing IT assets. Managers' tasks also include managing databases and information records for the organization's software and hardware, such as licenses, service contracts, and warranties. An IT Asset Manager is not only planning and implementing business, at the same time, fixing things when things do not go as planned is one of the main job descriptions. However, perhaps the most important role of an IT Asset Manager is to analyze tasks and work to have different skills and keep knowledge up to date at all times.

To keep their knowledge and skills up to date, managers need to understand the industry, communicate with stakeholders, have knowledge about software licensing and conduct company audits.

What should the IT Asset Manager Pay Attention To?

Even in small or medium-sized companies, especially when it comes to cloud applications, employees may not understand what is considered an asset. Excessive asset load can cause confusion and damage the company. Therefore, the Asset Manager must communicate clearly and effectively with employees and be able to transfer the background information. It is also extremely important to have reported so that you can be sure which apps are part of the site. Who the applications belong to, who uses them, how often they are used, what features are used the most and it is possible to know information such as when applications are renewed thanks to reporting. This allows managers to know if the applications are actually being used. And while managing IT assets is the asset manager's job, authorizing the necessary people from time to time is also important to ensure that teams work together for the common good. When authorized persons access the same reporting as the administrator and make decisions based on this data, or they can be more dominant in the process when they work with the manager to find the best action plan. This can be an important step towards improving productivity in the company.
