Asset Management

Hardware, software and digital assets can be managed from within the cloud. For example, suppliers offer the ability to view and manage your company's PCs - whether connected to your own internal network or not - and judge whether they're security compliant or need a software upgrade.

Images, video and audio files can also be shared and managed online using Digital Asset Management (DAM) solutions. Tools for managing software lifecycles can also help to best plan procurement or lease renewal.
