Informu Asset Management Platform

Overview

The Informu Asset Management Platform is fundamentally a corporate "Database of Things", providing an alternative to using spreadsheets for cataloguing and managing your organisation's soft assets, be these information sets or facilities equipment. Two key use cases are explored below.

The system is provided on a cloud-hosted basis for an annual fee inclusive of licence to use for unlimited users, support and maintenance, which starts at £3,600 p.a. (Pricing varies depending on the type and size of your organisation.)

Information Assurance Register

In Information Governance, the acronym "IAR" is usually an abbreviation for Information Asset Register. At Informu, we propose that the asset inventory is just one component of a more wide-ranging "Information Assurance Register".

Within the system you can maintain the evidential history of your information use and governance practices over time, including:

  • Retention policy histories
  • Business process insights, including the Records of Processing Activities (ROPA)
  • Information asset / record series profiles and histories 
  • Software application utilisation
  • Equipment utilisation
  • Data Protection Impact Assessments (DPIAs)
  • Governance documentation status and histories
  • Risk and incident status and histories
  • Information rights request summaries
  • Job descriptions
  • Contracts and agreements
