The Asset Life Cycle of your company network will have an impact on the bottom line of your business. Auditing, organizing and maintaining the network are all essential parts of the IT Asset Life Cycle. That includes planning network design and growth, acquiring the necessary components, managing the network for optimal performance, and performing upgrades to retire redundant or outdated hardware and software. Strict monitoring and accounting procedures are required to obtain the ideal network productivity. There are three primary factors of a network’s Asset Life Cycle, each one encompassing a different aspect the IT infrastructure but centrally controlled to ensure that operations are free of problems or unexpected costs.

Auditing for the IT Asset Life Cycle
In an IT Asset Life Cycle, auditing begins with collecting data about the existing network, and the data is then used to plan or fine-tune the network. An IT Asset Life Cycle audit will include every piece of pertinent information regarding the company network, from the servers to the workstations, and serves as an outline to isolate potential problems and implement procedures and hardware to prevent bottlenecks, security leaks and to prolong the IT Asset Life Cycle itself.

Reconciling the Needs of an IT Asset Life Cycle

Armed with the results of the IT Asset Life Cycle audit, the network can be reconciled with the needs of the company. This could mean the retirement of unnecessary or outdated equipment, integration of new technologies, or cost-management functions that utilize the network for maximum performance at minimal cost. Balancing the network performance with the anticipated costs and functions is one of the most important factors of IT Asset Life Cycle management because this is where the changes and corrections are planned, requisitions made, and accounts balanced for maximum performance.

IT Asset Life Cycle Control
Controlling the IT Asset Life Cycle entails monitoring the network, identifying data bottlenecks, hardware failures or other inconsistencies in the network which have the potential to reduce performance or increase costs. IT Asset Life Cycle control is how the network is managed, and includes specific time-tables for upgrades, data migration or software integration or upgrades. Where the auditing process spells out how well the network is functioning, the control process uses the audit data to identify and implement cost-effective changes to your company’s IT Asset Life Cycle.
