Hardware Lifecycle

Determining when to retire and replace your IT equipment.

Your IT equipment has a shelf life -- an industry standard lifecycle. With an efficient hardware lifecycle management plan in place, you will be able to optimize your IT budget, save time, and stay on top of your inventory tracking.


IT Hardware Lifecycle Mangement

Having an effective IT hardware asset management plan can help your business save time and money.  

Organizations generally struggle when it comes to IT hardware lifecycle management, especially when they have multiple systems and people of varying levels of training and awareness involved. That is why hiring a Managed Service Provider such as Partnered Solutions IT to manage and maintain your IT assets will benefit your business. It will make the job of locating, supporting, updating, and replacing hardware easier and more efficient.

Keeping an inventory of hardware saves your company money and reduces hardware productivity loss. Knowing that someone is actively managing your IT assets lifecycle will provide better-informed purchasing decisions, timely replacement of hardware and software, and a more complete picture of total cost of ownership (TCO).

With Partnered Solutions IT, you won’t be left wondering about the shelf life of your hardware or be caught off-guard by your hardware suddenly dying on you. 

Hardware Asset Lifecycle Phases


Acquiring new IT hardware assets involves evaluating vendors, purchase orders, receiving, and device labeling.


Hardware configuration and installment, placing hardware and software assets into production environments, and notation of physical asset location.

Maintenance & Support

Management of assets include scheduling scans and getting audit history, compliance with security and other standards, license management, monitoring, data backups, etc.


Before you retire your IT hardware assets, you’ll reach a processing plateau that can be restored with hardware upgrades.

Decommission & Refresh

The day your assets needs to be retired and replaced will include the removal of assets from the environment, both physically and logically, while safeguarding company data and licensing.
