Software Discovery

Take advantage of ZENworks Asset Management's software discovery capabilities to streamline your software license management processes.

In addition to its advanced inventory capabilities, Novell ZENworks Asset Management includes powerful software discovery features that tune and prepare all your software inventory data for efficient license compliance, reconciliation and reporting. This includes:

  • The ability to roll up point releases and service packs.
  • Automatic exclusion of titles with no license implications (i.e. Adobe Reader).
  • The ability to ignore software components if they were installed as part of a suite categorization of software by functional type.
  • Automatic identification of standalone suite components that were installed outside the suite.
  • The ability to distinguish between full, runtime and evaluation software.

 If you are planning a Windows 7 Migration, this feature will help you find all the software being used  by your organization, so you can make sure it will all work on Windows 7.
