The Asset Management page includes critical information about all contracts, licenses, and appliances, plus the details needed to easily manage inventory and availability for maintenance along with contract compliance. Service owners and partners can now easily identify assets eligible for upgrades and renewals. Avoid downtime associated with expired subscriptions, licenses, or end-of-life hardware, and avoid shadow IT.
