Dell Asset Manager integrates with a range of solutions to deliver more value to your asset management infrastructure.
Use Microsoft SCCM or Altiris to gather asset data
Collect the necessary asset information directly from the SMS / SCCM or Altiris database, eliminating the need to install Asset Manager agents on the desktop. Use the existing inventory and usage data to discover, identify, manage and track IT assets.
Use software import from CSV file (baseline)
With the generic baseline import functionality, you can now cleanse and rationalize inventory data from any structured source. As long as your data contains the software title, version, and the machine on which it is installed, Asset Manager can provide a complete Microsoft inventory report. When you also have software usage data in your inventory file, Asset Manager can tell you where to uninstall software and re-harvest the licenses. With this new functionality, Asset Manager now supports all inventory and deployment solutions platforms that can deliver raw inventory data.
Use Active Directory to accurately track IT assets
Use OU, group, and site information in compliance reporting. For example, based on 100 licenses, the one office may be assigned 10 licenses of Photoshop but is using 18. Asset Manager can help you identify this overage, where standard compliance reports would miss it.
Effectively manage software in VMware, Microsoft and Citrix virtual environments
Virtualized environments create their own licensing challenges and can create compliance nightmares. Asset Manager offers integration with Citrix, VMware and Microsoft, letting you track license usage across virtual environments and report everything accurately.
