IT Lifecycle Management In Perth

IT lifecycle management

Many Australian companies struggle to maintain their IT assets, which often results in plenty of unnecessary costs, outages, and a lot of stress. The initial purchase of your IT assets is just the beginning of their lifecycle. Unless you have a good IT team in your organisation, you’re probably not effectively managing the technology components you have.

It’s equally important to manage both your software and hardware assets. You should always know where all of your components are in their IT lifecycle, since it will help you come up with a plan on when to change, update, or replace them.

What is the IT asset lifecycle?

The IT asset lifecycle refers to a sequence of stages that a technology asset goes through during its ownership. The first stage is planning, followed by the procurement of the technology and its deployment. The next stages are usage, upgrade, decommission, disposition, and salvage. Once an asset is in use, you’ll be able to determine its life expectancy based on a number of different factors.

How long the asset will remain usable depends, naturally, on how you use it! Another factor that has an effect on an assets’ life expectancy is how often it is used. Finally, the maintenance you perform on the technology will impact its life cycle. That also means that you can extend the IT asset life cycle by performing regular maintenance. Once it begins reaching the end of its life cycle, it’s time for an upgrade. Meanwhile, you can decommission the tech, dispose of what you don’t need anymore, and sell the rest for salvage.

In case you’re not in the IT industry, then you most likely don’t pay too much attention to your hardware and software assets. That’s where our IT product lifecycle management services come into play. TechBrain’s team of IT experts in Perth can help maintain your assets and ensure that your business is always running at maximum efficiency.

3 benefits of IT asset lifecycle management

Our team of consultants can help your business through each stage of the IT asset lifecycle management. Here are some of the main benefits of this management service:

  1. Cost savings

    You’ll no longer have to spend huge amounts of money when an asset breaks down. Instead of replacing your assets when they stop working, IT infrastructure lifecycle management will help you predict future scenarios. You will be fully aware of which assets are aging and have enough time to carefully plan how and when to replace them.
  2. Hardware maintenance

    While most people take good care of their computers and laptops, there are other hardware assets in your organisation that don’t get the same attention. These include servers, patch panels, routers, printers, scanners, monitors, and removable media. IT asset lifecycle management helps you get the most out of your hardware.
  3. Increased knowledge regarding your assets

    It’s important that you know basic information about each of your assets. For instance, you should be aware of the name, manufacturer, license information, cost, as well as its condition, cost-effectiveness, and usefulness. Having all of this information at the disposal for employees at your organisation will help you determine which tools they have at their disposal for each future project.
