1.2 Scanning for Software Information

Asset Inventory allows you to scan all the devices in your Management Zone and collect data on what software products are installed on those devices. Asset Inventory can identify thousands of products and allows you to define additional products so that they can be recognized on subsequent scans and on other devices. It also allows you to collect data on how many virtual machines are present on the device. Data can be displayed through a variety of reports. This data can be used for general information, license compliance, and so on.
