Asset Manager

Individua, gestisce e tiene traccia rapidamente di tutte le risorse software e hardware

Asset Manager è una soluzione completa, rapida e conveniente che consente di gestire efficacemente le risorse software e hardware. Tramite un'unica console, consente di individuare e tenere traccia dell'inventario delle risorse hardware e software. Inoltre, permette di generare automaticamente report sull'utilizzo per collegare le risorse possedute agli effettivi acquisti e autorizzazioni software. Asset Manager si spinge anche oltre la semplice scansione e identificazione dei software. Tiene traccia dell'utilizzo tramite misurazioni e individua se il software è sotto-utilizzato o inattivo o se il numero di licenze acquistate non è adeguato.

Caratteristiche

Requisiti di sistema

Quest Workspace Asset Manager requires a Microsoft Windows Server host (“Quest Workspace Asset Manager Server”) and a Microsoft SQL database (“Quest Workspace Asset Manager Database”).
While the Quest Workspace Asset Manager Server software requirements are always the same, the Quest Workspace Asset Manager Server hardware requirements and Quest Workspace Asset Manager Database system requirements depend on the environment— i.e., the number of client PCs processed by Asset Manager. We define three types of environments:

  • Small-scale – fewer than 500 client computers
  • Medium-scale – 500 to 5.000 client computers
  • Large-scale – more than 5.000 client computers

The scale of the environment is important because more clients require more disk storage and will put a heavier load on the server running Quest Workspace Asset Manager.
