The People Factor: How to Make Your ITAM Tools More Productive

April 14th, 2014

By Steffani Lomax

When you buy sports equipment, such as golf clubs, a tennis racquet, a soccer ball or a basketball, you can’t get the most out of it without some training on how to use it. Even if you own the best equipment, you need to learn how to use the “tool” to your best advantage and understand the strategy of the sport to optimize your performance.

It’s the same with ITAM tools. Many tools are very effective but complex. After you purchase a tool, there is still significant up front work that needs to be accomplished, as well as training and ongoing activities.

Tools are a key component of your ITAM program. They are essential for automating processes such as discovery, license and lifecycle management. However, these tools need to be deployed, run and managed by people. The human factor is critical to ensure that tools are working properly and that the data they generate is accurate and correctly interpreted.

Over the past 10 years, various research and industry analysts have stated that an effective ITAM program should rely 20% on tools and 80% on people and process. This formula can be applied to any tools implementation such as inventory, software license management or ITAM repository.

What makes the implementation of a tool successful? Success depends on good data, solid planning and skilled resources. The tool must generate complete and accurate data, but without good planning, an organization is unable to leverage the full benefits of the solution. People are also critical – not only for implementing the solution, but for reviewing, evaluating and normalizing data for accuracy and completeness. People play a key role up front and perform ongoing tasks to ensure that the tool is updated and generates accurate data.

How should an organization approach the rollout and management of an ITAM tool from a people perspective? Let’s say that your company just purchased a software license management system. What do you do next?

We have published a white paper that describes a 10-step process to make the rollout of an ITAM tool successful, from a people perspective. In the paper, we describe the roles, responsibilities and skills required to help organizations realize the maximum return on investment (ROI) from their tools.
