An ITAM Review reader needs help shortlisting potential tools to serve as an asset management repository.
35% windows environment, the rest is Debian or Redhat linux
Security and basic awareness of assets is key
Needs to provide management of procurement records and contacts
Servers, Desktops, Network equipment
The ability to tag / classify devices and reporting
Preference for on premise
$15,000 to $20,000 to spend.
Less than 250 employees across 4 global offices
Mostly a hardware centric asset management solution is required, software is secondary at this stage
No dedicated ITAM department and light on policy. Any solution needs to be quick to learn and easy to maintain
Currently use ManageEngine Asset Explorer
