Below is a recap of this week’s blog posts including the challenges of electronics recycling, maximizing the value of IT assets with donations programs, value-added enterprise asset services, and ways to reduce cloud costs.
The electronics industry has grown exponentially in the last 20 years and is successful in all facets. One obstacle many consumers face is what to do with devices after retirement. Electronics recycling, a lesser-known industry, is an eco-friendly way to dispose of retired IT assets. However, the industry has faced many challenges, some more recently than others.
Electronics are used in almost every aspect of daily life. As important as they are, it’s equally important to ensure electronics are properly maintained and upgraded periodically to prevent technical issues. Maintenance can become costly over time, as well as upgrading to new devices. Value-added ITAD services like donations programs help maximize the value of retired IT assets while providing used electronics to those without access.
IT asset management and disposition become- more critical each year as technology evolves, and the electronics waste industry strives to accommodate the new needs of clients. ITAD providers typically offer many enterprise benefits, including data erasure services, reverse logistics, remarketing and resale, compliance assurance, etc. Still, clients’ needs have become more sophisticated and now include value-added enterprise asset services.
Many organizations concentrate on customer growth and enlarging margins and forget to consider cloud spending.

Cloud cost optimization is fundamental to having proper visibility, reducing costs, and improving operational efficiency. Here are some recommendations and cost optimization practices that can assist you in reducing your cloud costs.
