Evaluating your status quo and providing clarity on potential gaps & risks
Being successful on your path to a higher ITAM maturity level, can only be reached by evaluating exactly where you are now. The ITAM assessment helps to define the gap between the current and future desired state, making sure you re-use what is already in place and don’t take on more than you can realistically handle. Softline will help you map out your future state and set targets for your next steps of your ITAM journey.
Many organizations start their ITAM journey with an assessment of the current ITAM state. Creating a clear view on gaps and related risks is needed to be able to move forward. When an organization is well on its way and has an ITAM practice in place, the same clarity will help them to be able to move forward in a structured manner.
Softline has a practical and modular approach that is based on the ISO/IEC 19770-1 standard for ITAM and best practices based on hundreds of customer cases. All developed with the aim of helping organisations achieve their goals within a realistic timeframe that matches their ambitions and capabilities.
With an ITAM Assessment, we evaluate the elements of organisation, process and technology by checking these elements with the defined ISO/IEC standard criteria, combined with the most relevant topics based on Softline’ ITAM implementation experience. The outcome is used to determine the current ITAM maturity and to create a gaps and risks overview. Softline helps you to map out the future ITAM state, set targets to reach your desired ITAM maturity level and advises on the steps to take in order for you to grow in your ITAM maturity journey. It is used as input for the strategical scoping session.
