Asset Manager is a complete, fast and cost-effective solution for effectively managing software and hardware assets. Through a single console, it allows you to discover and track hardware and software asset inventory. Plus, you can automatically generate usage reports to correlate what you have actual software purchases and entitlements. Asset Manager also goes beyond simply scanning and identifying software. It tracks usage through metering and quickly identifies if software is being underutilized, sitting idle or if the appropriate number of licenses have not been purchased.

Features

Asset Manager allows you to:

  • Identify and meter software: Combine software inventory, entitlement, and usage data to help ensure your organization is neither under- nor over-licensed for any software titles.  Learn more»

Sys Reqs

Quest Workspace Asset Manager requires a Microsoft Windows Server host (“Quest Workspace Asset Manager Server”) and a Microsoft SQL database (“Quest Workspace Asset Manager Database”).
While the Quest Workspace Asset Manager Server software requirements are always the same, the Quest Workspace Asset Manager Server hardware requirements and Quest Workspace Asset Manager Database system requirements depend on the environment— i.e., the number of client PCs processed by Asset Manager. We define three types of environments:

  • Small-scale – fewer than 500 client computers
  • Medium-scale – 500 to 5.000 client computers
  • Large-scale – more than 5.000 client computers

The scale of the environment is important because more clients require more disk storage and will put a heavier load on the server running Quest Workspace Asset Manager.
