Wie funktioniert RayOptimize?

Zunächst scannen Sie Ihre Systeme mit RayVentory (hierfür wird eine Lizenz zur Verfügung gestellt) nach Software und Hardware, die in Ihren Computersystemen mittels Zero-Touch-Technologie installiert sind. RayVentory liefert Rohdaten, die für eine detaillierte Softwareanalyse benötigt werden. Dieser anfängliche Scan kann auch von anderen Tools wie Microsoft SCCM oder Matrix 42 Empirum durchgeführt werden.

Anschließend werden Ihre Rohdaten von der COMPAREX Profiler DNA identifiziert, einem einzigartigen Tool zur Identifizierung von Software aus Ihren Inventardaten. Es berechnet, welche Softwareprodukte auf verschiedenen Ebenen Ihrer IT-Umgebung gefunden wurden und bietet somit eine solide Datenbank für verschiedene Prozesse, die auf Ihrem Softwareinventar basieren.

Schließlich bietet Ihnen RayOptimize eine umfassende Analyse Ihrer Hardware und Software, basierend auf professionellen IT-Lösungen, die seit Jahrzehnten bei Großprojekten eingesetzt werden. Der Bericht enthält eine Vielzahl von Eigenschaften wie z. B.: Produkt, Version, Mengenangaben, Lizenzkategorien etc.

Sie können RayOptimize entweder separat oder als Set mit anderen Beratungsdienstleistungen bestellen.
