A robust platform designed for speed as well as intelligence means that installation throughout the entire enterprise takes only hours. Traditional solutions, by contrast, often can require months or even longer. Once installation is complete, “always on” inventory captures software status and changes in near real time, boosting time to value for low total cost of ownership.
Enables users to create and manage information about software contracts and product licenses to ensure licensing compliance. Users can browse data about software licenses and compare this information with inventory information in order to audit license compliance and determine related financial implications of noncompliance.
The inventory and analysis function provides a constantly updated inventory that drills down into software asset information, providing aggregated statistics and usage gathered by searching, filtering, sorting, viewing and exporting data on potentially thousands of computer properties. Automation and speed of operations enable IT organizations to radically reduce the number of hours and resources spent on inventory activities.
The solution can gain visibility into any computing device across topologies in a heterogeneous environment and regardless of connection state—whether on the corporate network or connected via the Internet.
Because the solution’s asset monitoring takes place continuously, administrators and financial analysts can generate the reports they need when they need them. Real-time reporting, based on the IBM Endpoint Manager Analytics platform, can deliver information on the health and compliance of software assets in minutes—regardless of the size of the environment.
