Hi Team,


I am trying to implement a robust IT Asset Tag Management for my department.

Any Ideas?

(Obviously it needs to be affordable)

I am open to any suggestions.


Thank you.

Hi Beenardino,

CMDBuild is free, open source software available at SourceForge:
http://sourceforge.net/projects/cmdbuild/

I have not personally deployed it, so I can't vouch for it from my own experience. But I've heard good things about it during my time in IT and am passing it along for your consideration/evaluation. I think it's worthwhile to put on your short list. One of its primary uses is IT Asset Management:

I use spiceworks. Works pretty well and it's free.

(not too bad with variety of mobile client 3rd Party Tools )
Zabbix @ http://www.zabbix.com/screenshots.php
(not bad in the past but kinda losing 'color')
ocsinventory @ http://www.ocsinventory-ng.org/en/
(can be overly simplified)

Check out "yourCMDB", it's an open source management framework that allows you to setup multiple types of entries, link between them, etc. ...
