Discovery and data population are easy and quick to handle

What is our primary use case?

  • Multiple OSs
  • The global presence of 25K servers and 100K desktops and laptops
  • Managing the giant publishers like Microsoft/Adobe/SAP/VMware was a nightmare.
  • Reporting the asset information and the current spend is also very difficult for my team with our homegrown discovery tools.

How has it helped my organization?

  • Deployment of the agents was very easy, and we completed the entire estate agent installation in a month.
  • Easy to manage the users/application, and the procurement data allows me to push the data to CMDB in a fraction of a second. 
  • Workday integration is one of the best helps to manage the users against the systems.
  • Audit readiness and 100% users and usage calculation helped the organization to save money.

What is most valuable?

  • Software normalization is really good.
  • Discovery and data population are easy and quick to handle.
  • Roles and responsibility can be managed according to the organizational structure using AD.

What needs improvement?

  • Sun Solaris server discovery needs to be improved. 
  • Apple Mac OS was not supported fully. 
  • Naming conversation needs to be improved.
