Firms suffer bad case of asset amnesia

A global survey commissioned by LANDesk Software reveals that 64% of companies don’t have accurate records of their PCs, laptops, applications and other IT assets.

A global survey commissioned by LANDesk Software reveals that 64% of companies don’t have accurate records of their PCs, laptops, applications and other IT assets.

On the positive side, 85% are confident that their software is correctly licensed, however, they are unwilling to put this confidence to the test. Only 48% would welcome an audit from Microsoft or other software suppliers.

“This research clearly shows that many organisations aren’t really sure of their IT assets,” says Dave Taylor, vice-president of worldwide marketing at LANDesk Software.

A third of the survey respondents indicated that they keep track of assets simply by logging all purchases, while 15% send IT staff round to physically check equipment and software.
