ITAM vs. ITSM

TABLE OF CONTENTS

ITAM and ITSM are the two most common responsibilities in the ITOps domain. The use cases and working approaches of the two, on the other hand, are complementary yet vastly different. 

These are the two processes that help IT leaders with the proper management of an organization's overall IT operations; each focuses on a different aspect. 

ITAM is directly connected to your organization's IT infrastructure. It focuses on managing all hardware, software, digital assets, and networks. At the same time, ITSM focuses on delivering IT services as effectively as possible.

While implementing these technologies, IT managers must understand the different use cases of the two in order to make the most out of their capabilities, keeping in mind the end goal of providing the greatest end-user experience possible.

Both technologies, standalone or combined, serve an organization's IT operations; nevertheless, their purposes and goals are meant to achieve specific tasks. 

Now let's have a look at the major differences.
