Once you have selected tools, we can also help
you take your implementation to the next step by assisting with data
mapping, initial data population and baseline. This includes:
- Implementing data requirements
- Uncovered through Foundation Services, data requirements must be
matched to tools capabilities and processes. Minimize data collected to
what is needed to satisfy the business requirements.
- Bringing your data together
- What inventories already exist? Is there too much or too little data?
What other data sources will be used? Can different sources of data be
compared as apples to apples? We have extensive experience with data
scrubbing and can help bring order to chaos.
- Populating a repository
- A central theme in ITAM best practices is to have a single source of
truth. This is your asset repository. Having an asset repository
populated with a sample of actual data will get you started with real
