How We Started
AMI was founded by ITAM expert Tom Watson to help companies accurately track their IT hardware in real-time, all the time. Tom and his team developed AssetTrack software and made sure it worked better than anything else available.
Tom’s goal was to create software that’s easy to use in the field, adaptable to the needs of a global enterprise and delivers accurate data that can be trusted.
Tom Watson — President & CEO
Tom Watson, IT technology expert and entrepreneur, is the founder and chief executive of AMI. Since 2003, Tom has grown AMI and its flagship product, AssetTrack, into the industry leader in hardware asset management.
Tom previously worked as a software developer for several technology startups, including senior architect for Micropath’s asset inventory software. At Micropath, he saw how hard it was for companies to keep track of hardware, which served as the impetus for AMI and AssetTrack. Tom graduated from the University of Washington with a degree in Fine Arts.
What drives Tom?
My mission is to help people buy only what they need and ensure they receive what they buy while avoiding financial penalties and legal issues along the way. I want to help IT asset managers make timely decisions and feel good and secure about their jobs. I also want them to keep their data safe.
What about outside of work?
When I’m not playing legos with my son, I’m on the soccer field or writing songs, playing guitar and signing lead vocals for a Seattle band Crown Hill.
