Physical IT Asset data is one of the core data elements in Software Asset Management. Through various audit techniques, the PIAI Audits collect, cross-reference and validate your IT hardware asset registry to ensure sufficient and accurate specification data is collected for SAM.
We confirm the device type, geographic and organisational scope of the physical audit and agree on the data types to collect
We utilise your existing network discovery tools or deploy our own technology to generate a baseline position for discoverable devices
We consolidate all data sources that you can provide which contain Physical IT Asset data to build a target inventory for audit
We visit your various sites and locations to conduct wall-to-wall audits, collecting data for all devices in-scope
We investigate the discrepancies identified between the audit and previous inventory records and create a "Golden Record" with rich information for each device.
Benefits “Missing data” or conflicted records from different sources will no longer be your concern. The PIA audits will deliver accurate and audit-proof physical asset records with sufficient details to support all asset management related operations.
