First Principles

Ah, the introductory post!  Probably best to start by helping folks know where I’m coming from and at the same time give them a place to comment on how I ought to improve/remove the lenses which color my thinking.


But, first let me tell you a little about my transitioning into HP Asset Management Solution Marketing Manager position.  A lot of times transitioning into a new role is a nightmare.  Not this time.  The excitement of the folks in the AM team is contagious!  Over the past couple weeks I have met folks who care a lot about IT Asset Management technologies and services and their optimism is enough to make me want to dance a jig.  (A special thanks to Ann and Chuck who have been and continue to be simply wonderful in making my transition painless.).


Now, to the heart or the post and the principles (at least the ones I am aware of) that shape my thinking:


1)      IT Asset Management is the lifecycle management of discrete financially meaningful IT components which may create or are creating value or risk for an organization. 

2)      HP’s IT Asset Management products are strategic to HP’s software portfolio. 

3)      HP’s Professional Services further differentiate HP’s IT Asset Management solution thru their services.

4)      HP Partners are world class experts at creating value for clients thru IT Asset Management solutions.

5)      An HP IT Asset Management blog will find a diverse audience ranging from rookies thru to the most seasoned practitioners, the audience is not limited to IT Operations or Finance functions, and the audience will span every region and almost every country in the world.

6)      Every post should add value to the community and the more each supports a productive dialogue the better.

7)      ITAM technologies, best practices (good practices), vocabulary, market, and practitioners change and part of the value add of this blog is in making those changes explicit.

8)      Adopting ITAM technologies without making appropriate process changes is stupid.

9)      No one has time to waste.

10)   Accountability matters.


Like I said, I'm excited to join this community!  And, now that I've shared my underpinning ideas for thinking about AM, I'm keen to learn what shapes your thinking about ITAM and what gets you excited about the future of ITAM.
