Software Asset Intelligence reports provide information about software families, categories, and specific software titles installed on computers within your organization.

In addition to hardware information, information is gathered about installed software, which can be identified and categorized by a software category and family. Asset Intelligence reports present information about browser helper objects, auto-start software, and more. These reports can be used to identify ad-ware, spy-ware, and other malware, and can help identify software redundancy to help streamline software purchasing and support.

noteNote
The accuracy of installed software title quantities and license information displayed in Asset Intelligence reports might vary from the actual number of software titles installed or licenses in use in the environment because of the complex dependencies and limitations involved in inventorying software license information for software titles installed in enterprise environments.  Asset Intelligence reports should not be used as the sole source for determining purchased software  license compliance. For more information about the dependencies and limitations involved in Asset Intelligence reporting, see About Asset Intelligence Reporting Limitations.
