Excecutive overview of asset Manager from ScriptLogic
Asset Manager is a complete, fast and cost-effective solution for effectively managing total software costs.
Asset Manager is the ideal solution for IT administrators to implement best practices in managing software assets.
The solution goes beyond simply scanning and identifying software, but also tracks the usage through metering and quickly identifies if software is being underutilized, sitting idle or that the appropriate number of licenses have not been purchased.
Asset Manager also provides the ability to centrally organize the purchasing contracts and licensing agreements so that the automated usage reports can be easily correlated to actual purchase costs and legal responsibilities.
Asset Manager works seamlessly with Active Directory, and System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM). Finally, Asset Manager also supports identifying software used in VMware ESX Server and Citrix® XenServerTM environments, which eliminates many of the licensing complexities that come with having virtual applications.
