I’ve never considered myself to be out of the ordinary. Six feet tall, blonde hair, and blue eyes seems to be the norm in Salt Lake City, Utah. However, my recent trip to Mexico made me feel quite out of place. Not only did my physical appearance put me out of place, but my language skills and cultural differences added to the “gringo” reputation.

Much like my recent trip where I felt like the elephant in the room, LANDESK recently went through a similar experience when Info-Tech Research Group named LANDESK a Champion in their IT Asset Management Vendor Landscape Report.
What’s more, LANDESK was the only vendor to have all green boxes when it came to features evaluated in the report.
So, what does this mean? From our perspective, LANDESK has the wide product portfolio people need and want.
Saving money and avoiding financial risk is a top priority for most organizations, and IT asset management can cut costs by up to 50 percent by maintaining hardware and software assets, reclaiming unused licenses, supporting security efforts, and managing vendors and contracts. Selecting a vendor that can help you achieve these initiatives is critical.
Businesses also need to be able to discover and inventory owned and new assets within their organization. Understanding what assets you have enables you to get (and stay) compliant, as well as curb overspending and underspending on software licenses. Tracking the usage of those licenses also allows you to reclaim and reallocate resources where needed.
Desktop management is another important feature that was evaluated in the report. For proper asset management, you need quick and easy deployment of software, migration, and patching. You want to have transferable licenses so you don’t have to purchase new ones when migrating. From a security standpoint, you can’t manage what you don’t know about.
Eighty percent of businesses are overpaying for software licenses. By implementing strategies around this feature set, businesses can avoid financial risk.
LANDESK is green across the board when it comes to feature set capabilities so customers are able to accomplish exactly what they need to do with a single solution instead of a variety of point products.
These are just a few of the important features that were weighed in the Info-Tech evaluation. Check out the complete vendor landscape report below for additional details.
