Inventory & Audits

Our audit and assessment program quickly delivers unparalleled insight into your technology infrastructure.

Seize control of your data center assets

Bringing over three decades of data center experience, industry-leading business rules and a purpose-built data solution, Align professionals deliver our audit and assessment program in a proven four-step approach. 

Get Started

#1 Inventory & Discover

Align inventory services teams kick off the inventory and discovery process with a physical validation of your IT assets, using customized hand-held scanners. We can also deploy auto-discovery tools to capture logical information from targeted assets.

#2 Confirm & Validate

Existing customer-supplied IT asset records are integrated with data gathered during the initial inventory and discovery, and our purpose-built data repository (powered by Asset Point) provides a robust user interface to confirm the IT asset estate.

#3 Evaluation & Analysis

Next, we evaluate the audit results and conduct a gap analysis — setting thresholds and exception-handling logic — and conduct a deeper analysis into how IT assets can help achieve business goals.

#4 IT Asset Insights

Our management dashboard provides extensive data analytics and insight in real time. Information can also be federated to a variety of gateways and service modules
