Software asset management is the key to compliance and smart purchasing
Only Novell ZENworks Asset Management provides a complete, accurate view of software installations and license compliance. Other vendor reports duplicate entries for the same software package and often say software is installed on devices when it is not. Only ZENworks Asset Management provides an integrated asset inventory, with software usage and license reconciliation. ZENworks Asset Management uses intelligent asset recognition; other inventory products rely on file header data, which leads to over-counting, over-spending and the risk of noncompliance. ZENworks Recognition technology is patented and has been proven for many years on more than 10-million desktops. Take charge of your assets with a software asset management tool you can count on.
A complete view of assets
The key to reducing costs is knowing what you have. Novell ZENworks Asset Management can help you get a handle on every IT asset in your company. Use it to get reports that integrate licensing, installation, and usage data. Allocate licenses to specific departments, sites, cost centers or workstations. Manage and monitor all your IT contracts. It allows you to buy only the licenses you need to support your business. Then you can reallocate any under-used software licenses and eliminate maintenance fees on unused software.
License tracking and compliance
Don't over-purchase or under-purchase your licenses. Novell ZENworks Asset Management can keep you in compliance with all your license agreements and contracts. It includes an auto-reconciliation feature that matches the products discovered on your network with the licenses you've purchased - and that's half the battle. Automatically discover and track more than 65,000 products. With accurate asset management tools, you'll avoid costly penalties for noncompliance with licensing policies and government regulations.
When it comes to vendor negotiation, knowledge is power. Knowing exactly which assets are being used, and how frequently, gives you enormous power when you negotiate with vendors. You'll know what you need or don't need from them. You'll know whether it's worth anything to you for them to throw in another software license.
Recognition technologyProduct Highlights
Go beyond scanning hard drives. A sophisticated recognition engine drives the inventory capabilities of Novell ZENworks Asset Management. This technology goes far beyond simply scanning hard drives and displaying a list of raw executable files. Instead, an advanced auto-discovery process carefully analyzes the software on your hard drives and checks against an extensive application knowledge base to accurately identify all the software running on your systems.
