"IT Asset Management (ITAM) is a formalized set of business practices which manages IT assets across business units within an organization to maximize their value. IT Asset Management merges the financial, inventory and contractual responsibilities to manage the overall life cycle including tactical and strategic decision making to facilitate current and future business operations. The mission of the IT Asset Manager is to maximize benefits while minimizing r isks from IT assets in their organization."
