In an announcement Wednesday, the firms said they will utilize PWC’s methodology for IT Asset Management (ITAM) to examine asset management issues including security, business continuity, compliance, process automation, and contract management.
CA will bring its ability to automate core asset management processes to the partnership. "It’s essential for companies to know exactly where hardware and software dollars have been spent and where those resources have been deployed," said CA’s Lokesh Jindal in a statement. Jindal is vice president of Business Service Optimization at CA.
"Companies are not only concerned about being efficient financial stewards," said Carl Tudor, director, Advisory, at PWC in a statement. "They are also concerned about the risks they face in reputational and legal exposure regarding compliance to software license contracts and they know they must have effective security in place to protect their IT assets."
