IT Asset Tracking Workshop

Sponsored By:
RFID Global Solutions
Please note that attendance for this preconference is restricted to end users only.

Tracking IT assets is a challenge for all companies, even those that don't run their own data centers. Radio frequency identification technology can help businesses better manage IT assets, by making it easier to capture data regarding the locations and movements of servers, storage devices, laptops and peripherals. Learn how RFID can reduce capital expenditures on IT assets and reduce the amount of time, labor and money required to perform inventory counts and comply with the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002.

Please note that attendance for this preconference is restricted to end users only.

Attendees can choose to participate in one of these sessions prior to the opening of the main conference program. Preconference seminars are available through an All-Access, Conference + Preconference or Preconference + Exhibit-Only Pass.
