What Is an Application Inventory?

Creating an Application Inventory

Small organizations can opt to conduct a manual inventory. The following guidelines may be followed in manually creating an application inventory:

  • Create a spreadsheet listing all applications on each company computer. This can be done in two ways. One is by logging into every computer and listing all applications in that computer and so forth. Another simpler way would be by asking the user of the computer for the applications in such a computer.
  • Another way is by interview questionnaire representatives for each department to help in creating a list of applications used by that department.

What Are the Benefits of an Application Inventory?

An application inventory determines what applications the company currently has and which are often or seldom used. This way, the company would be able to determine which applications are essential for the operation of the business.

Applications have licenses and some do not have perpetual ones. They have to be renewed ever so often to get continued use. By determining which applications are often used, other applications would not have to be used at all thus extinguishing the need for renewal of such licenses.

Areas where an application is commonly used would be prioritized over areas that do not require the use of computers or their programs.

Knowing which applications are often used, the company can invest in more applications that will be actually used rather placed in storage of some hard disk.
