With ZENworks Asset Management, you gain a more complete and accurate view of all your IT assets. You can eliminate software overspending because you can improve your ability to accurately track and monitor software licenses, installations and compliance.
- Reduce IT costs
Eliminate over- and under-purchasing and increase your bargaining power with software vendors.
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. You can easily see where you can reduce IT costs by allocating software licenses only to specific departments, sites, cost centers or workstations.
- Lower compliance and security risk
Improve license compliance with a complete view of software installations and sophisticated license reconciliation capabilities.
Novell ZENworks Asset Management can keep you in compliance with all your license agreements and contracts. It has a powerful auto-reconciliation feature that matches the products discovered on your network with the licenses you've purchased.
With the license compliance capabilities in ZENworks Asset Management, you can discover and track more than 65,000 products. With these accurate asset management tools, you'll avoid costly penalties for noncompliance with licensing policies and government regulations.
- Make more informed software purchasing decisions
Gain all the knowledge you need to negotiate effectively with vendors.
Knowing exactly which assets are being used, and how frequently, gives you enormous power when you negotiate with vendors. With Novell ZENworks Asset Management, you'll always know exactly what you need or don't need from them—including whether it's worth anything to you for them to throw in another software license.
- Get WorkloadIQ management benefits
