New Episode of Best Seller TV features author Jeremy Boerger addressing why businesses must be savvier when it comes to their IT needs
New York, NY, April 14, 2022 — Best Seller TV, the only show dedicated to covering today’s best-selling business books on C-Suite TV, is announcing a new episode, featuring Jeremy Boerger, author of “Rethinking Information Technology Asset Management.”
Boerger begins by identifying, in layman’s terms, what information technology asset management – or ITAM, is. He said ITAM is “a segment inside service management that deals with getting the most value out of your hardware, software, server, systems necessary for modern businesses to function.”
Asset management at its core is trying to fight a two-front fight – spending money on IT vs lowering costs. Nowadays, it’s hard to imagine any business existing without an IT infrastructure in place; however, that doesn’t mean businesses should spend money frivolously.
Boerger argues that we spend money on cybersecurity tools, photo production tools and even telecommunications, but do we stop to ask what is our ROI? Is there a better way to spend our dollars? Perhaps on employees, salaries and stock returns?
This is where the ‘rethinking’ part comes into play. Boerger explains that according to a 2016 Gartner article, medium-to-large organizations can lower their software spending by about one-third. That can be accomplished with three things:
- Recycling already purchased licenses instead of buying more
- Ensuring the software features being bought line up with the work that’s being done
- Having a system in place that measures how the work is being done so you don’t get penalized by software publishers conducting software audits
However, there are other ‘flaws’ that plague the industry, such as having two main operating methodologies: transactional and accountancy. Boerger describes the first as “nothing happens without a receipt” and the latter as “comparing what’s on the left hand side of the ledger with what’s on the right side of the ledger.” In the book, he describes a third methodolody to be used – epistemology. Boerger argues that asset management is an exercise in epistemology, which he defines as the study of learning.
All episodes of Best Seller TV air on C-Suite TV and are hosted by TV personality, Taryn Winter Brill.

In fact, he’s only one of 35,000 experts in this field worldwide,” said Hayzlett said. “Throughout the interview, Jeremy explains in layman’s terms what the acronym ITAM is and how can we, as business owners, can better understand this complex world of acronyms, methodologies and rethinking our strategies to save money and stay competitive.”
