The Info-Tech Vendor Landscape notes that "Asset management can save money. The benefits of asset management - up to 30% savings and high compliance - are nearly impossible to reach if tools are not in place to understand software usage and installation data. ITAM is more than taking an inventory. Many organizations do the minimum for asset management and benefit from automation. Asset management is a process, not an event, and requires hands-on management. Using a software tool can greatly simplify this task."

What is the Tools Manager?

ECPweb is a major publisher of news and reviews of technology asset, IT service, and software asset management issues, practices and tools. The Tools Manager is widely recognized as one of the most influential technology evaluations for enterprises seeking to evaluate software asset management, IT asset management, and IT service management vendors and their technology. 

Each evaluation is based on elaborate and on-going assessments of the vendor's company and technology, including the vendor's business strategy, market understanding, completeness of vision, product innovation, depth of features, and ability to meet the demands of real-life situations.

Why is Aspera's inclusion important?

Aspera created the catalog-based methodology for software asset management and therefore the first entitlement-centric solution for SAM. This is now the industry standard, which means any serious evaluation of the SAM market and its vendors must include Aspera.

And, of course, we and our customers think SmartTrack is the best solution. But you don't have to take our word for it; download these SAM evaluations and see for yourself.
