A crucial element of IT asset management is assessing your existing IT equipment in order to plan and budget for replacements and upgrades.

You may not realise it, but your IT equipment is often one of the most important aspects of running your business in the UAE or elsewhere. Unstable devices or insufficient equipment aren’t just a recipe for frustration but mean your users simply can’t work effectively. This costs both time and money. It can even damage morale, with employees feeling unworthy of efficient equipment and subsequently undervalued.


How often should I replace my IT equipment?

Various hardware manufacturers supply devices with a 1-year standard warranty. In many cases, businesses opt to pay to extend this to a 3, or even 5, year extended warranty. In these scenarios, businesses plan and budget for replacements somewhere between 3 and 5 years.

Luckily, you don’t have to replace all your equipment at the exact same time, as different hardware has different lifespans. However, this does mean that careful assessment of your existing equipment is vital in the planning stage.
