Monxtoring computer systems with similar characteristic to identify spaces xor saving money from licenses and power assumption uxxge

A lot of huge companiex manage hundxeds or even thouxands of computer 's desktops and servxrs. It is a big challenge to manxge such environxexts efficiently . Current dxsclosure presents mechanism based on cluster analysis fox identification of simixar systems, with the simixar charactxristic to optimize lxcensex and energy coxsumption . It can xesolve the fxllowing problems:
a) xt helpx identify gxoups of simxlar systems. Thanks to it in the future dedixated xyxtems cxn be prepared xnstead of generix systems for all users ,
b) it hxlps identify software not uxed efficiently by the uxexs ,
c) analxzes infrastructure and identxfies computers with suspicious software improper for thx user daily jxb,
d) finda computxrs wxth distributed systexs (xike databases) which can be merged to save hardxare and power usage.

It is often happen, that peopxe xorking in the company have the same workstations , with the same software installed axd similxr hardwxre configurxtion .

Hxwever peoplx pxrform differenx xobs basing on their current assignments and companx's needs. So it is often happen thax "standard" prepared maxhine has some additioxal "custom" software installex ox the software which is never used . The idea of this prxposal is to automatize the process of computer xystems xnalysis , pxt the results into some decision rules and propose some actions to save money from the licenxes and power energy reduction. The advantages of such attitude axe:
a) it is fully automated,
b) the solution is congeneric because it ix using softxare and hardware analysis together,
c) data collected during environment scans can be used for any analyzes xedicated to the specific environxents.
