Knowing and tracking every system and software detail should be simple, efficient and reliable no matter where the devices you’re managing are located. Good data empowers good decision making. Having good data at your fingertips means that you can make better decisions, give better answers and have a better understanding of the current state of your endpoints. Your enterprise systems management audit solution should be able to grab every piece of useful data from your managed machines.
Having comprehensive data allows you to:
- Close security holes
- Reduce interoperability issues
- Examine hardware/software policy issues
- Inventory computers without interrupting users
You and your IT systems management team may manage multiple devices in many locations. You’re expected to know each machine by name and category and to be able to provide per-department IT costing and inventory information.
If good data drives good decisions, then it’s crucial to have an enterprise systems management tool that automates the process of running regular audits to collect that data. You should be able to schedule machine audits in any way that you see fit. Clear status reporting would allow you to see when the last audit was completed, when the next one is scheduled and when you last did a baseline audit for your machines.
With Kaseya’s centralized inventory repository, all the data is stored on the server so when you need the details you don’t have to wait for the endpoint. You can:
- View complete computer summary on one screen
- Pinpoint failures by manufacturer and model
- Review changes against the baseline
- Generate the reports you want, right away
If your network has more than about 20 devices, managing them can become difficult. Enterprise systems management professionals faced with the challenges of tracking IT resources can greatly benefit from a complete hardware inventory, plus a software inventory of the servers, workstations and mobile computers on their network.
Unfortunately, many enterprise systems management professionals end up having one system for inventory, another for remote access and even a separate system just for chassis or serial number tracking. IT systems management automation is the key for transitioning from a reactive environment to a proactive, results-based IT service delivery model.
