AdminStudio Inventory and Rationalization: Features

Application rationalization consolidates the application portfolio and improves agility of day-to-day application service delivery


Prevent Application Sprawl with Continuous Application Portfolio Rationalization

Keeps your desktop application portfolio under control and your organization agile. React quickly to new efforts and rationalize day-to-day requests as part of an Application Readiness strategy.

Continuously Gathers Windows Desktop Inventory and Usage Data

Collects application evidence from Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager and securely uploads the data to the cloud-based Application Recognition Service. Provides simple transparency into which machines and users have applications installed and when they were last used without requiring permissions to or technical knowledge of Microsoft Configuration Manager.

Transforms Raw Inventory into Actionable Information

Automatically categorizes applications and standardizes naming conventions of more than 181,927 applications from over 18,333 software vendors to produce a consistently named list of applications found in your enterprise.

Through a constantly updated cloud-based service, AdminStudio Inventory and Rationalization automatically standardizes the naming conventions of discovered applications while classifying and categorizing software to focus rationalization efforts around the applications that are most important to business goals. Manually define and apply standard naming conventions and categories for internally developed apps.

Define Rationalization Projects That Align with Business Objectives

Create application portfolio rationalization projects by business units, users, machines, or applications and easily see how close those projects are ready for deployment from a simple dashboard. Manage overall Application Readiness across rationalization projects and report on the status and progress toward delivering business outcomes.

Make Informed Rationalization Decisions with Compatibility Data

Make the right rationalization decisions by reviewing application packaging, virtualization, and compatibility information from the AdminStudio Suite as part of a complete rationalization strategy.

Organize Applications and Clearly Identify Next Steps

Track that applications have clear next steps towards meeting rationalization goals. Organize applications, sort and filter by vendor, application, category or classification and document owners and custom notes that help with research and decisions.

Automatically Execute Workflows for Application Packaging and Deployment

Once an application is validated, automatic workflows assign tasks to each IT group involved in getting the application prepared, tested, and deployed into the enterprise environment.

Keep Up With the Latest Versions

Informs you how many versions out of date each release is and if there is a new version that is not currently deployed in your environment. Keeping your applications up to date reduces support costs, security risks, and compatibility issues.
