    About IT Asset Disposition

    IT Asset Disposition is a lifecycle stage in IT Asset Management primarilyconcerned with the end-of-life/end-of-service of an organisation’s physicalIT assets – computers, servers, mobile devices, and so on. Increasingly, andthis is the case with Iron Mountain’s Secure ITAD offering, ITAD is also concernedwith managing the entire lifecycle of the physical layer of an ITorganisation. Without managing the whole lifecycle, it isn’t possible tomanage the end. This is a concept familiar to IT Asset Managers whorealise that software and hardware asset management requires theirattention throughout the lifecycle from Request and Procurementthrough Deployment and Servicing and all the way to Retire. It’simportant to understand that ITAD is no longer just an end-of-lifeexercise.
