The TEMIA Paper for Fixed Wireline, Mobile and IT Inventory

E-mail Print PDF

The Technology Expense Management Industry Association (TEMIA) publishes an industry standard for fixed wireline, mobile and IT inventory management, providing a critical foundation for all programs.

Inventory managementThe paper promotes more precision in the discussion of what can be included in the scope of work for fixed, mobile and IT inventory, and the IT section in the standard reflects this new thinking. After all, IT may not be part of a current TEM or MMS engagement, but is included to help clients and solution providers define the scope of the work.

A result of 6 months of contributions from TEMIA thought leaders, the paper identifies a minimum requirement for what should be tracked, managed and reported. It also identifies a second categories of items that are not part of the required standard with items that are "nice to have."

"Inventory is one of the most compelling reasons to implement a TEM solution in your organisation," TEMIA says. "Without a complete and comprehensive inventory you lack insightful reporting analytics, detailed information of your Network Control services and cost components cannot be properly measured and reported on. The standards TEMIA has set are a valuable tool in helping the enterprise be assured they have the necessary information to gain valuable insight into the services and costs."

The white paper detailing the standard can be downloaded from the link below.
