IT VALUE EXPERTS Inc. (IVE) is an emerging consulting company based in Japan. The company provides a range of specialized IT management consulting services, including IT Service Management (ITSM), across various industry sectors. IVE’s expert consultants help clients to succeed in the digital era by offering deep domain knowledge and broad connections in the IT management industry in Japan.

The addition of IT Asset Management (ITAM) and Software Asset Management (SAM) services through the partnering agreement with Anglepoint Group will broaden IVE’s offerings. As ITAM is becoming an integral part of ITSM, IVE is well positioned to assist its clients to fully realise the many benefits of ITAM and the automation opportunities when integrated with ITSM solutions.

Japan is a fast maturing market for ITAM and SAM services. Leading industry bodies are represented in Japan such as the globally recognized International Association of Information Technology Asset Managers (IAITAM), along with key ITAM and SAM tool vendors and key software publishers.

Mr. Tom Hiroki, CEO of IVE, said that Japanese companies are looking to streamline their IT estates and show demonstrable reductions in IT spends. Software Asset Management is one of the key ways by which organisations can realise immediate savings whilst mitigating the risks associated with non-compliance of software vendors’ licensing rules. Also, due to the increased risk of security breaches, Japanese companies are placing more emphasis on the governance of their IT assets and seek expert advice to establish and mature their ITAM programs. The partner agreement with Anglepoint will allow IVE to offer independent and objective SAM ans ITAM professional services to its clients.

Anglepoint delivers high-value licensing and compliance services to its clients via a global team of subject matter experts to Fortune 500 companies and others around the globe. The firm has simplified incredibly complex processes and refined its services to deliver actionable insights that are easy to comprehend and utilize.
