Reducing the Cost and Complexity of Information Technology (IT) Asset Management With RFID
In large enterprises, IT data centers can frequently contain hundreds of thousands of IT assets. But tracking these highly mobile assets can be a daunting task. Servers, hard drives and external media are on the move in and out of the data center for routine maintenance, repairs and upgrading. Backup tapes are on the move into and out of the tape libraries as needed throughout the day. And end user devices such as laptops and handheld mobile computers are on the move inside the four walls - and out in the field. In addition, asset tracking is mandatory - government regulations require enterprises to track IT assets in order to comply with tax laws as well as laws that protect sensitive customer data.
