Inventory and IT Asset Management

From computers and servers to mobile devices, routers, printers and more, the KACE Systems Management Appliance keeps you on top of all the hardware and software installed across your network. As the Internet of Things (IoT) — with an ever growing and diverse array of connected devices — expands to the enterprise, visibility over your entire connected environment is becoming increasingly more critical. The KACE SMA discovers all hardware and software on your network, and provides you with ongoing IT inventory management, IT asset management (ITAM) and software asset management (SAM), with robust reporting and alerting for most platforms. Whether you’re running Windows, Mac OS X, Linux, UNIX, Chrome, iOS or Android, the KACE SMA provides you with detailed oversight of your entire environment from a single pane.

 

How it works:

Do more with detailed discovery and inventory
The KACE SMA scans your entire network to identify all connected devices, and provides you with detailed hardware and software inventory for Windows, Mac, Linux and UNIX systems, as well as OS and hardware inventory for Chromebooks, utilizing Google APIs. The KACE SMA’s network discovery and asset inventory functions can be performed with or without installing an agent.* By using SNMP and other network scanning protocols, the KACE SMA enables you to obtain actionable information even about connected, non-computer devices, such as networking gear, printers and IP telephony.
Conserve resources with comprehensive asset management
The KACE SMA automates asset management from deployment to retirement through a single configuration management database (CMDB), including asset data audits, tracking, compliance and reconciliation. In addition to detailed hardware discovery and software inventory for computers and servers, SNMP object identifiers can be tracked for non-computer devices, such as toner levels for printers. All asset data is integrated across complementary KACE SMA functions, such as patch management, alerts and service desk, and can be easily tracked through the asset’s lifecycle. The KACE SMA’s asset management includes common asset fields and software license types and out-of-the-box support for storing asset associations, ensuring accurate tracking of financial and service impacts of asset changes.
Reduce maintenance costs for your Dell™ systems with warranty integration
The KACE SMA automatically pulls warranty information for all your Dell systems and devices — PCs, laptops, printers, servers, storage, tablets and peripherals — directly into its asset inventory. This enables Dell hardware owners to efficiently manage the lifecycle of their Dell devices, reducing costs by avoiding post-warranty maintenance and retiring old assets in a timely manner.
 
*Installing an agent is necessary for other functionality, such as patch management and software distribution.
