AskCicala supports clients across the whole ITAM spectrum with most inquiries falling into one of the three domains:-
For organizations initiating ITAM programs and/or looking to move them to the next level:-
How many people should I have in my organization and what should their job descriptions be for a successful asset management program with X number of PCs, Y Servers, Z Mainframes and associated software?
I have XYZ tools in house currently for my asset management program? What other tools do I need for a successful program? Which tools are the 'best in breed' for my needs?
My xxx agreement with vendor ABC has the following clauses in it:-
Clause mm - Subsequent Operating Systems Use and Associated Charges
Clause nn - Confidentiality
Clause oo - Maintenance
Are these clauses in all of this vendor's agreements with others?
Is this vendor willing to negotiate for caps on year to year maintenance? If so, what is the percentage per year cap we should be asking for and what will this vendor generally accept?
Having outlined at a high level the monetary volumes, products and discount levels they are currently offered during a new or renewal hardware or software agreement with vendor XYZ:-
Is this a good deal?
Can I get better discounting based on your knowledge of this vendor, and what have you seen from other deals of this size and scope?
Is there anything else about this vendor that I should be aware of at this point in my negotiations?
Apply the experience and insight that is AskCicala with a trial inquiry.
