Abstract

Collecting hardware and software assets from an enterprise environment is a tedious and difficult task. If this is not done programmatically human error and high costs will occur. A solution to aide in this task is a set of hardware and software scanners, which are easily configurable and can report data in an easy to use standardized format.
