Asset Identification Advanced Training Course

The Asset Identification advanced course of instruction is based on the information and practices contained in the IAITAM Best Practice Library (IBPL) Asset Identification volume 11 which pertains to the activities that uniquely identify and validate the physical presence of IT assets within an organization.

Asset identification is a key enabler of many related activities in the Software Lifecycle, Hardware Lifecycle, IT Acquisitions and Documentation Management areas.  Unique physical identification tags are assigned and affixed to the outside of IT assets which will associate that label with a particular IT asset.  This form of identification is necessary for inventory, location, security and compliance purposes. 

Current means of identification include, but are not limited to, bar code and Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) in which an asset tag will contain information or relate to information specific to the asset on which the tag is affixed.  This tag identification system will normally mean nothing outside the organization.
