IT Asset and Software License Management for Government

The United States has several regulations (FITARA, MEGABYTE, FISMA) which are designed to control IT spend and increase security among the organization's technology. Although only required by federal agencies, cities and counties across the country are also following them as best practice templates for managing IT. Government organizations are turning to IT Asset Management tools, like VIZOR, to help them comply with the regulations.

IT Government Legislation

Federal regulations designed to increase security and reduce costs are increasingly been used in Cities and Counties as best practice templates for managing IT.

FITARA

The Federal IT Acquisition Reform Act requires agencies to understand the cost and performance of IT investments. FITARA gives CIOs the authority to address IT investment challenges and improve efficiencies.

MEGABYTE

The Making Electronic Government Accountable By Yielding Tangible Efficiencies Act requires CIOs to report financial savings or cost avoidance that results from software license management.

FISMA

The Federal Information Security Management Act defines a comprehensive framework to protect government information, operations and assets against natural or man-made threats.

"Spending greater and greater sums without proper ITAM controls in place is a prescription for more breaches, risks posed by unauthorized devices, increases in lost and stolen hard drives, and major vulnerabilities" - IAITAM
