Dell Asset Manager version 9.5 – the best in the business just got better

Dell Asset Manager version 9.5 has been given an overhaul and is now easier to use and more powerful, flexible and robust than ever. Dell Asset Manager ensures you’re in control of your assets, implementing best practices and streamlining the audit process – while saving money as you go.  Features include:

  • Increased software titles – includes 500,000 software titles in the software DNA.
  • Latest platform support – supports  Windows Server 2012 and Windows 8
  • New Microsoft App-V Connector – fully supports applications that are deployed and used on the Microsoft App-V platform.  With the App-V Connector, Asset Manager 9.5 can collect information from the App-V server to:
    • Report on what users can access
    • Report on what devices can access
    • Report on what applications are being used
    • Report on metering--which users are actually using the applications and whether the applications were streamed or run locally.

    With the App-V Connector, you can tell exactly which users are able to access applications streamed from the Microsoft Application Virtualization Server (App-V Server) and how these applications are being used (metering). You will also know which users are running what applications and how -- local or streamed. This helps your organization save on software license costs by properly managing licenses, even in virtual environments. You can also find out if users ever opened their application using App-V. 

  • Windows 7 compatibility reports – get migration reports with an extension of the rich Asset Manager Software DNA. You can see Windows 7 and 64-bit compatibility data and end of support information out of the box.
  • New generic baseline imports – cleanse and rationalize inventory data from any structured source with the new generic baseline import functionality. 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 even 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.
  • Separate license entitlement – save time and effort with separate inventory and license entitlement. You can purchase licenses and enter them into the Asset Manager solution even if the software isn’t installed. When the software is subsequently installed, it can be assigned automatically.
  • Report host/virtual instances – many licensing programs have restrictions with respect to software licensing and virtual machines. Asset Manager 9.5 makes it easy to get a complete overview with the new reports available.
  • New quick jumps and views – dramatically speed navigation with the new quick jumps and views in Asset Manager 9.5.  You can store frequently used pages in a quick jump menu and access them with a single click.
  • New Native Windows and MAC Agent – collect extended hardware information for improved determination of CPU manufacturer, number of CPUs and COREs with Asset Manager Native Agent for Windows and Macs.

With all of these features and many more, it’s easy to see that Dell Asset Manager version 9.5 is the only solution you’ll need for complete asset discovery and software asset management.  See for yourself with a free trial.
