Automate software, hardware and cloud licenses through IT Asset Management


Effectively track and manage your hardware and software assets for the duration of their lifecycle, all through the ServiceNow platform.

Regain control

Complete visibility of your IT estate

Visibility of your hardware and software assets throughout their lifecycle should be a priority for your business, no matter the size. You need to have a clear understanding of what you currently own, and then ask the questions: are we buying what we need? Are we using what we have? Where are our assets located?

There are three primary types of IT asset management: hardware, software and cloud.

Hardware: This refers to the physical hardware within your organisation - PCs, laptops, mobile devices, printers, copiers etc. Any hardware that is used for data management purposes within your organisation falls under this category.

Software: Probably the most complex type of ITAM, software asset management (or SAM) involves things like licensing, shadow IT and compliance requests. Software assets need to be continuously tracked and reviewed.

Cloud: ITAM tracks the cost and usage for cloud resources, including software as a service (SaaS), infrastructure as a service (IaaS) and platform as a service (PaaS).

Optimise your resources

Monitor the full IT asset lifecycle

Individual enterprises may well define the IT asset lifecycle in slightly different ways. However, the structure generally begins as a need being recognised and a request made following that. Important factors are then highlighted - what assets are needed, how to obtain them and how they will be used.

Request: a need is recognised and a request is made
Fulfilment: Building, purchasing, leasing or licensing of the asset
Deployment: the asset is installed into the IT ecosystem
Monitoring: ensures the assets is functioning effectively
Service: assets are maintained and upgraded to prolong their life
Retirement: assets are retired and disposed of once they are no longer needed

Frequently Asked Questions

How long does a standard ServiceNow IT Asset Management implementation usually take?

A standard ServiceNow ITAM implementation with Unifii generally takes around 2-3 months. For SAM Pro another 2-3 months will be needed, depending on the software publishers chosen and the complexity (both can be run alongside a discovery implementation). However we do understand that every implementation is unique and depends on a multitude of factors, including the size of the business and the business objectives, therefore the complexity of the project will affect the length of time.
