Hardware Asset Intelligence reports provide information about hardware assets within your organization, including age and upgrade readiness. Using hardware inventory information, such as processor age and speed, memory, peripheral devices, and more, Asset Intelligence hardware reports are able to present information about USB devices, hardware in need of upgrade, and even computers that are not ready for a specific software upgrade.

Drill-through Hierarchy

The following diagram shows the hierarchy and drill-through order of the Hardware Asset Intelligence reports.
