This presentation will give an overview of the recent efforts to establish an accurate and consistent inventory and stock management for CERN data centre assets. The underlying tool, Infor EAM (http://www.infor.com/solutions/eam/), was selected because of its wider usage over many years in other areas at CERN. The presentation will focus on the structuring of the IT assets data and how it is prepared for the integration with the spare parts stock management. The talk will also summarize the experience and some lessons learnt from the long and manual process for achieving an accurate recording of the legacy assets. Finally the integration with an on-going undertaking of global assets management at CERN will be described.
