Application Inventory Management

One-stop IT Asset Management Tool with SAM/HAM capabilities and cyber risk profiling

A PwC India product

Procurement of software and hardware assets forms a major chunk of the IT budget for majority of the organizations, but only a select few are able to capitalize on their investments by means of regular monitoring and management of assets. They generally outsource it to specialized consultants.

We at PwC India have extensive experience of delivering such services over the years and we are proposing to deploy our in-house developed tool to compliment our services. This is a unique proposition within PwC as many of our member firms also rely on PwC India for related expertise.

We have plans to take it to our domestic clients and also to our member firms to utilize this tool in their respective markets.
