Like Product Portfolio Management, Asset Portfolio Management (APM) focuses on managing an enterprise's complete portfolio of Assets. According to major research organizations such as Forrester and Gartner, IT management will increasingly turn to Portfolio Management solutions to stem the flow of money into non-core business functions, such as engineering and maintenance of hardware and software that adds no direct value to revenue channels. APM builds an Asset knowledge base that serves as the sole source of Asset truth across the enterprise. This knowledge base is used as an enterprise vehicle to collect and manage key Asset metrics to help govern and manage Asset activity. Many APM practitioners report 10% to 50% reductions in maintenance costs and returns on project investments in less than a year. Beyond the inherent need in virtually every large enterprise to streamline and reduce maintenance costs, the major drivers accelerating APM adoption include:

  • The need for Asset knowledge to respond to regulatory mandates for data privacy, such as the Sarbanes-Oxley Act and the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act;
  • Pre-contract negotiation and post-outsource monitoring; and
  • APM's eventual melding with other portfolio management disciplines, such as Project Portfolio Management, Risk Portfolio Management, Service Portfolio Management, and much, much more.
