This flexibility allows the solution to fit organisations exact requirements and provide a truly holistic view of the organisations IT Infrastructure.

This cuts database volume and means there is no latency.
3 Manage all aspects of Software and Hardware Assets The core technology behind all our asset management software applications is available to xassets IT Asset Management. This enables users to manage all aspects of an asset s lifecycle, and store non-discovered assets in the same database. For ease of use, the system is structured into configurable dashboards for discovery, portfolio, software, history, life cycle, procurement and service management. Each user can decide which dashboard is their home page. Each dashboard is completely configurable and contains menu links, charts and tables. Powerful management reporting is enabled through charts and tables, which allow progressive drilldown either in place or into a mainscreen report. Each chart and table also has a predefined report format for easy printing. All dashboard functions are also available from the dropdown and right click menus. The integration engine is used to keep data feeds from other systems such as SMS and Active Directory in sync. Establish Software License Compliance position and meet ISO standards The xassets IT Asset Management discovery engine discovers software titles using a variety of advanced techniques including executable file header reading, WMI software repository, and recognition through a number of registry entries. The server software includes a software recognition engine which will clean and recognise discovered data, and store the remapped data in asset register reference tables, so reports show accurate, normalised information across the entire network. Store software license purchase information and report purchases against usage Recognise Software, Patches, Operating Systems and Status Report on software compliance position with charts and reports Identify infrastructure faults such as stopped services on security products Helps to meet the requirements of the ISO software standard Advanced software recognition technology Includes reporting for specialised titles like Sql Server which use per processor or per instance licensing CUSTOMERS PANASONIC DELPHI EXPERIAN BMW SARA LEE ABBOTT QINETIQ DUMFRIES AND GALLOWAY POLICE SIEMENS K12 CHORDIANT SMORGON STEEL LIBERTY FINANCIAL TENIX NETSTORE SCHLUMBERGER UNITED HEALTHCARE STORAGETEK GLOUCESTER COUNTY COUNCIL UNIVERSITY OF THE PACIFIC UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA MERCED THAMES VALLEY UNIVERSITY ALAN BOSWELL CEMEX UNITED STATES PHARMACOPEIA

Integrate with Anything Integration can be achieved without substantial expense on consulting fees. Integrate into almost any application including: Active Directory SMS, Belarc, BMC and Centennial Discovery Accounting Systems Purchasing Systems EMC, Commvault Most other applications in common use today
5 Customise and Extend to meet requirements All menus, discovery schedules, discovery methods, views, integrations, classifications, queries, forms, reports and dashboards can be configured to exact requirements, mostly without programming. Customers can introduce new recognition scenarios and code them into the discovery data loader. Create new business functions and shape the system to requirements without programming. For example, cross charging for IT server usage, or scheduled maintenance plans for servers, can be easily built in using the configuration engine. Existing installations can be extended with other xassets products without costly migration or integration fees, since each xassets product uses the same database and software. Secure networks by tracking security software, patches and banned software xassets IT Asset Management recognises security software such as Antivirus tools and firewalls, and also recognises titles such as file sharing software, games and software designed for home use, as banned software. Options to discover SNMP Devices, Unix and Linux Machines SNMP v1 and v2 devices are automatically discovered as part of a discovery run. Configuration options allow users to install new MIBs and capture different ObjectIDs. Unix and Linux machines can have SNMP turned on, or we have close integration with a third party product which discovers Unix and Linux machines in depth. Hosted or Installed on your Network Customers can choose whether to install on your own servers or have xassets host the software.
