SoftwareReviews names Micro Focus Asset Manager, IBM Control Desk, USU VALUEMATION ASSET MANAGEMENT, BOSS Solutions, and CA IT Asset Manager Software, as IT Asset Management (ITAM) Data Quadrant Award Winners, according to users.

TORONTO, May 22, 2019 - SoftwareReviews, a division of world-class research and advisory firm Info-Tech Research Group Inc., has published its 2019 IT Asset Management (ITAM) Data Quadrant Awards, naming five gold medalists in the space: 
·         Micro Focus Asset Manager
·         IBM Control Desk
·         BOSS Solutions as IT Asset Management
·         CA IT Asset Manager Software
According to Sandi Conrad, Senior Research Director, Info-Tech Research Group, “A proper asset management program will allow your organization to cut spending, eliminate wasteful hardware and software, and improve your organizational security. More data will lead to better business decisions made across the organization.  As your program matures and your data gathering and utility improves, other areas of your organization will experience similar improvements. The true value of asset management comes from the rising tide of improved IT services built upon the foundation of a proactive asset management program. “ 
Without a centralized view into assets, including a single ITAM tool, organizations cannot track assets and their movement across locations or where money is being spent to identify areas for cost savings.
SoftwareReviews’ Data Quadrant is based entirely on real user feedback and provides unprecedented levels of insights into data points per product within the category, making it the most comprehensive enterprise software review and assessment in the market today.  

IT leaders, business professionals, and end-users evaluate vendors via a detailed online survey, examining relative performance across two axis: Product Features & Satisfaction and Vendor Experience and Capabilities.  The reviews are then carefully validated through a robust quality assurance process, beyond checking for LinkedIn authentication.

Another key differentiator of SoftwareReviews, which also helps set the gold medalists apart, is the “Emotional Footprint” (EF) scoring.  SoftwareReviews’ EF tracks replies across 25 emotional response areas that span five categories: Purchasing, Service Experience, Product Impact, Vendor Strategy, and Conflict Resolution.
