Enterprise asset management
Unlike traditional CMDB solutions, Atlassian Insight is built on Jira, enabling teams to understand how assets relate to their workloads. Its flexible data structure allows teams to manage assets outside of IT, including HR, sales, legal, facilities, and other functions.
Asset management is based on IT Service Management, which has spread its best practices across the enterprise and is now defined as Enterprise Service Management. Insight is a powerful tool that can be understood as a catalog of assets and relationships between assets unique to different organizations. For example, the HR team has a different set of assets than the Marketing team, which has different assets than the IT team. They can all relate or exist independently from each other within the platform. Insight allows you to keep them separate or link them together. Long before Insight was integrated into Jira Service Management, we explained in this article how the tool allowed Valiantys to manage the skills of these consultants.
