Enterprise IT Asset Management SoftwareManage the full IT asset lifecycle

IT Asset Management (ITAM) and IT Service Management (ITSM) share the same goal – managing technology to deliver business value. They’re part of the same machine, so it makes sense to help IT Asset Managers work in harmony with IT Service Managers – sharing tools and information to improve efficiency of IT operations and deliver more value to the business at a lower cost. That’s why we’re continually evolving the ITAM capabilities of our assyst product - to help you deliver more business value from technology.
 
As an integrated ITAM/ITSM solution, assyst helps ensure you derive optimized business value from IT assets. Every asset is recorded in a service-oriented context, which shows exactly how each asset fits into the technology stack and what it means to the business.

 

  • Manage the full IT asset lifecycle.
  • Service-oriented CMDB shows the business context of all assets.
  • Automated asset discovery keeps CMDB data fresh.
  • Optimize software license cost and compliance.

Through the integration of IT ITAM and ITSM functionality within a single application, assyst provides unique benefits to the business. With control of the full process of planning and delivering new systems and services in support of new business plans, assyst makes IT more responsive to business needs and more timely in delivery.

 

Incorporating an enterprise-class CMDB, assyst captures IT asset information to support both ITAM and ITSM processes, giving our customers an unparalleled depth of information to support a broad set of objectives. This close cohesion between asset management and service management functionality means that processes involving both the asset management and IT support groups can be managed from end-to-end.

Organizations are under constant pressure to drive down the cost of IT. assyst incorporates “pervasive” cost capture, allowing IT to record costs against all purchases and activities, including support tasks. By linking assets, services, incidents and support tasks, assyst provides complete visibility of:

  • Lifetime cost of an asset or asset class, including purchase, deployment, maintenance, warranties, support and retirement.
  • Accurate cost of service provision based on people, assigned assets and shared assets.
  • IT costs attributable to each business unit, team or individual.

The assyst solution provides advanced license management capabilities to ensure efficient and compliant use of applications across the whole organization. By using assyst to manage licenses, your organization can save six or even seven-figure sums annually and eliminate the risk of a failed compliance audit.

  • Report on licenses which are officially in use.
  • Auto-discovery tools pick up unauthorized license usage.
  • Integrated Definitive Software Library (DSL) supports license management.
  • Vendor management tools.

Automated Asset Discovery

Get a complete and accurate view of your IT infrastructure. Powerful agent-based and agentless discovery technology takes the heavy lifting out of building and maintaining a complete inventory of your IT systems.

 

With assyst you can automatically discover the devices on your network and the applications that are running on them.

 

  • Discovery Wizard – An intuitive discovery wizard helps you quickly configure the system to collect the infrastructure data you need. Flexible discovery rules and profiles let you decide what data is collected and when.
  • Agent-based and Agent-less discovery – Get full visibility of your IT infrastructure with automated discovery of hardware, mobile devices and installed software.

Business Service Monitoring

In complex IT environments, the volume of systems monitoring “noise” coming from thousands of assets makes it difficult to pick out the priorities. Often the first IT hears about an issue is from an angry end user.

 

assyst’s Business Service Monitoring makes sense of the flood of device-level monitoring and provides automated, priority-based notification ensuring IT can respond effectively to support the business.

 

Business Service Monitoring helps you find and fix the issues that are most important to the business – fast.

 

  • Automated discovery – get a complete picture of hardware and software in your IT estate.

  • Systems monitoring – identify the status and performance of devices and the applications they support. Synthetic transaction monitors verify the performance of applications and network components to identify the "health" of systems.

  • Service modelling – Bring asset and performance data together to construct a business view of your infrastructure.

  • Notifications – Configure email and SMS notifications when service “health” drops below an acceptable threshold.

  • Root cause analysis – visual tools showing the status and performance of applications and devices let IT people quickly find the root cause of issues.
