All these factors make it difficult for IT administrators to perform software application discovery, which is crucial when starting a software asset management project or when faced with an audit. Companies typically have to revert to manually scanning their devices, which then becomes a never-ending, expensive task with often inaccurate results.
RayVentory oﬀers comprehensive hardware and software scans either with an agent or through zero-touch agentless technology. It is a web or USB-pen drive which enables the discovery and inventory of computer devices, VMware, Hyper-V hosts, and Oracle database instances.
It provides a smart scan and data gathering of physical and virtual devices at low costs as well as comprehensive reports about hardware, software, VMware, Hyper-V, OpenStack, and Oracle database servers. In addition, RayVentory removes barriers of complex IT infrastructures/data centers and possible limitations of the Work Councils allowing data gathering initiated by the end user himself (privacy).
