Network Discovery Software

Asentrix Systems provides comprehensive, turn-key asset management solutions including award winning network discovery tools from Express Metrix, Tally Systems, and Alloy Software.

What is Network Discovery Software?

Network Discovery Software refers to the category of asset management applications that are used to inventory internal software and hardware components contained within an intelligent asset, such as a computer workstation, server, or network device. These asset management applications are also commonly referred to as “Auto Discovery”, “Electronic Inventory”, “Network Inventory”, “Network Interrogation”, “Asset Discovery” and the like.

Today, the marketplace is full of asset management Network Discovery tools boasting a variety of features and price points. The critical success factors in deploying asset inventory software are primarily contained within the following 3 criteria:


Network Discovery Usability :
When evaluating Asset Management Network Discovery Software, make sure the user interface is easy to use and easy to teach. Often seen as a “soft” benefit, ease of use is a critical element in the success of software implementation. “Passive rebellion”, or user non-compliance, has caused the failure of many well-intentioned programs.

Network Discovery Capability:
When evaluating Asset Management Network Discovery Software, make sure you address software recognition technology, asset discovery accuracy, deploy-ability, OS/device compliancy (Windows, Linux, UNIX, Mac, routers, switches, etc), software metering, software usage, and scalability. We recommend clients engage the assistance of an asset management professional services organization capable of providing multiple tools and objective guidance.

Network Accessibility:
When evaluating Asset Management Network Discovery Software, only purchase systems based upon open architecture. The best Network Discovery tools on the market today are open and accessible through standard architecture, ensuring the data can be shared with other systems, including the Asset Data Repository Software.
