This programme is now available to view on localgov.tv the online television channel for public service modernisation. It describes the way that councils are saving significant amounts of money by more effective tracking and management of their IT estates.

A Configuration Management Database brings together a single and accurate view of all asset information to enable proactive planning and speedier resolution of problems.

The programme explains how the savings can be made by for example ensuring that only productive IT assets are being managed and by removing unused assets from costly support contracts and software licenses.
