As an IT professional, you want to reduce risk by knowing about each hardware and software asset in your network environment. Manual processes increase IT cost, which is a burden against your budget. The primary challenge is having a full view of assets, from PoP to retirement. Implementing yet another console increases deployment time, as well as the cost of controlling your IT assets.
Data Analytics solves these problems by tracking assets from the time they're purchased to when they're retired. With Data Analytics, you can easily monitor the purchase history, warranty information, and usage data of both software and hardware. You can use run-time configurations to patch and upgrade software seamlessly without losing your inventory information. Data Analytics captures PoP information and provides an end-to-end product lifecycle picture that establishes end-of-life and when to purchase new IT assets.
Data Translation Services enable you to use a powerful data-mining engine to scan your organization's devices for the inventory data you most care about - data relating to software licensing, warranties, and so on.
Asset Control boosts your ability to discover and manage assets. A primary element of endpoint device management is the ability to identify those devices within your infrastructure. Discovery is no longer just about hardware; software discovery and inventory are just as important.
