Retiring unused or obsolete assets is an inevitable phase of the IT asset lifecycle. Often, when an enterprise is faced with this decision, they are unaware of the remainder value of the IT asset and it ends up as e-waste. As a result, about 40 million tons of electronic waste is generated annually i.e., equivalent to throwing 800 laptops every second thus constituting 70% of earth’s overall toxic waste (Source: 11 Facts about E-Waste, 2019). In the present climate, stringent requirements mandated by global regulatory bodies such as US DoD (United States Department of Defense) and NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology) warrants large enterprises to abide by international directives or face the high risk of significant legal liabilities for compliance failure.

According to one of recent reports, the average cost of a Data Breach to a business can be as high as USD 3.9 million. As highly evolving businesses generate increasingly unprecedented quantities of data at a progressively high-speed, securing data becomes exceedingly crucial. For medium to large enterprises, the process of asset disposition can often be of high risk if the storage drives in obsolete electronic equipment are disposed of without following strict & secure data wiping procedures.

IT infrastructure investments generally constitute a huge chunk of an organisation’s IT budget. In keeping up with the complex requirements of technological advancements that constantly evolve, most IT decision makers struggle to keep the balance between optimising the utilisation of IT assets and keeping the CAPEX within the fiscal budget. With large organisations, the mandatory requirements for a periodical technology refresh more often than not leads to obsolesce of fully functioning IT systems which eventually ends as e-waste.
