Cascade is acknowledged as a Representative Provider in the 2023 Gartner® Market Guide for IT Asset Disposition
MADISON, WI – February 1, 2023 – Cascade Asset Management (Cascade), a national leader in information technology (IT) retirement solutions, announced it was named in the newly released “2023 Gartner Market Guide for IT Asset Disposition.” According to Gartner, a globally renowned market research firm, “Sourcing, procurement and vendor management leaders can use this Market Guide to navigate the ITAD market, assess growing compliance risks and identify representative ITAD providers.” Cascade is one of the Representative Providers recognized in this Market Guide.
The new Gartner Market Guide offers several key findings and recommendations. One of their observations is that “ITAD processes and service providers are gaining CxO attention as the circular economy, particularly reuse of IT assets and components, helps mitigate Scope 3 emissions and attain sustainability/e-waste targets.” C-suite leaders are recognizing that reusing IT assets and components can help them meet sustainability goals. Gartner offers this recommendation, “engage with your ITAD service provider(s) to leverage superior environmental sustainability characteristics of asset reuse as your primary disposition process.” The research firm also states, “Focus your ITAD process not only on cost, but also on the dual and material risks to your brand equity of improper ITAD-related data security and recycling.”
Cascade’s CEO Neil Peters-Michaud stated, “For us, this recognition by Gartner is a testament to our commitment to delivering ITAD solutions that meet or exceed our client’s data security and sustainability expectations. Maintaining industry certifications, providing sustainability metrics tailored to our clients, and recovering value from used IT assets are all part of our efforts.” This is the fourth time Cascade has been recognized in this Market Guide report.*
Cascade supports businesses and institutions in highly regulated industries such as healthcare, finance, insurance, government, and technology. Due to strict regulations regarding privacy and personal data protection in these industries, it is crucial that companies ensure compliance by working with an ITAD company with data security credentials.
