Description


This book is intended for business leaders and IT executives who are tired of missed budget forecasts, unexpected software audit penalties, untrustworthy CMDB or Asset MDR reports, and idea that this is "just the way it is."

Information technology asset management (ITAM) and software asset management (SAM) is hard. Annual IT budget forecasts rarely hold up for the entire year. There are plenty of excuses given:

  • Untrustworthy reporting from the CMDB or MDR
  • Unplanned version upgrades or platform refreshes
  • Unapproved software, license, or cloud computing subscriptions coming due
  • Unanticipated software license audit penalties
  • And on, and on, and on

Rethinking Information Technology Asset Management presents a new answer to the problem. Most business leaders and IT managers assume nothing can be done. That these problems are part-and-parcel of modern IT. This book presents a new method - Pragmatic ITAM - that offers permanent solutions to the ignored, underpinning issues driving hardware and software cost overruns.

This book is intended for business leaders and IT executives who are tired of missed budget forecasts, unexpected software audit penalties, untrustworthy CMDB or Asset MDR reports, and idea that this is "just the way it is."

About the Author


Jeremy L. Boerger started his career in information technology asset management (ITAM) fighting the Y2K bug at the turn of the 21st Century. Since then, he has helped companies in manufacturing, healthcare, banking, and service industries build and rehabilitate successful hardware and software asset management (SAM) practices. These experiences prompted him to create the Pragmatic ITAM method, which directly addresses and permanently resolves the fundamental flaws in current ITAM and SAM implementations. He also tours the country, speaking at numerous conventions and symposiums throughout the year. In 2016 he founded Boerger Consulting, LLC, to better help business leaders and decision-makers fully realize the promises a properly-functioning ITAM and SAM programs can deliver. In his off hours, you will find him at home in Cincinnati, Ohio, with his wife and family.
