    About IT Asset Disposition

    IT Asset Disposition is a lifecycle stage in IT Asset Management primarily concerned with the end-of-life/end-of-service of an organisation’s physical IT assets – computers, servers, mobile devices, and so on. Increasingly, and this is the case with Iron Mountain’s Secure ITAD offering, ITAD is also concerned with managing the entire lifecycle of the physical layer of an IT organisation. Without managing the whole lifecycle, it isn’t possible to manage the end. This is a concept familiar to IT Asset Managers who realise that software and hardware asset management requires their attention throughout the lifecycle from Request and Procurement through Deployment and Servicing and all the way to Retire. It’s important to understand that ITAD is no longer just an end-of-life exercise.
