IT Governance has evolved from Corporate Governance over time as a means to enforce security and control over information systems and put in place best practices for organisations. There are accredited standards, such as ISO, CobiT, and Information Technology Infrastructure Library (ITIL) to help organisations create, and conform to best practices for information technology security. Currently there is very little IT asset governance specific literature. This study was conducted to research best practices for IT asset management, and proposes a set of guidelines for Wexford County Council to implement for IT asset management. This study also proposes how to physically implement best practices using Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager; and how steps can be taken using the asset governance recommendations to benefit the areas of IT budgeting, risk management and security.
