KNOWLEDGE IS POWER

APPCLARITY is the fastest way to establish visibility into software usage, control application sprawl and reduce spend.

INTRODUCTION

How accurate is the inventory of software deployed and licenses active across your organization? Most companies waste millions due to lack of visibility. Whether preparing for audit or supporting business change, accurate visibility into your software estate takes the guesswork out of Software Asset Management: eliminating waste, maximizing efficiency and saving your company millions. Because knowledge really is power.

AppClarity provides a precise, straightforward view of the software installed and active across the enterprise – empowering organizations by delivering total visibility into their software estate. Automated processes measure application usage, reclaim unused or prohibited software and allow licenses to be redeployed as needed. The time-saving solution transforms Software Asset Management into a business as usual proposition instead of an ad-hoc project, turning the tables in favor of the customer in vendor audits, software compliance and license negotiation.

Stop paying for software you don’t need. Stop entering vendor negotiations and audits with your hands tied. Stop truing up – start truing down.

KEY FEATURES

ACCURATE SOFTWARE INVENTORY INSTANTLY

AppClarity leverages Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM) to instantly obtain accurate visibility into all applications deployed across the enterprise. By utilizing the historic information provided by SCCM, AppClarity provides an immediate picture of the applications deployed and their usage, without the need to collect any further information.

NORMALIZED VIEW OF APPLICATIONS

AppClarity analyzes multiple file types to identify applications, filter out irrelevant information, and normalize variances in publisher, product name and version. This information is easily consumable via a single console for all software across the entire estate.

DETECT AND REMOVE UNUSED PC SOFTWARE

AppClarity’s heuristic engine builds an accurate picture of all applications deployed, and calculates actual usage of those applications to provide unrivalled clarity across software deployed within the organization. Every software install is analyzed to determine if it is used, rarely used or unused.

AUTOMATICALLY RECLAIM AND RECYCLE SOFTWARE

AppClarity’s Reclaim process allows for unused applications to be removed from PCs using an automated, policy-based approach. When a software installation is unused or rarely-used it can be uninstalled automatically, or with the user’s approval via an opt-out process.

FINANCIALLY QUANTIFIES WASTE

AppClarity provides detailed reporting with actionable results, without having to review pages of data. All unused software is collated into a single financial report with information outlining the total waste and potential savings. Cost savings achieved through removing unnecessary software can be tracked and reported on a continual basis.

SIMPLE TRAFFIC LIGHT COMPLIANCE SYSTEM

AppClarity’s unique traffic light compliance system informs targeted license compliance reporting. By automatically reconciling deployed software with licenses purchased, AppClarity delivers fast, accurate and comprehensive liability and compliance reports.

RESTRICTS THE USE OF PROHIBITED APPLICATIONS

Administrators can set policies to remove unauthorized applications within the environment. These can be global or specific to a group of machines or users, and can ensure that the organization is only held liable for those applications it has licensed.

APPCLARITY AND NON-SCCM ENVIRONMENTS

For organizations without SCCM, AppClarity utilizes the 1E Agent to collect inventory and usage information directly from the endpoint PCs. This provides the same granular inventory and usage information; allowing non-SCCM environments to enjoy the same benefits from AppClarity.
