IT Asset Visibility

The easiest way to answer core IT Asset Management questions:  what do I own, where is it located and who’s using it?

The Certero Unified Platform has the powerful Certero discovery capability including Virtualisation and Cloud coverage to provide a complete view of all IT assets no matter what or where they are.

This single, consolidated and cleansed data source is therefore the perfect foundation for effective Hardware Asset Management, Software Asset Management, SaaS and Cloud Asset Management, IT Service Management and overall Technology Governance.

Being Certero, you can have it exactly however you want it:

Technology – Tactical Service – On-premises – SaaS.

Removing the traditional complexity and cost of having to combine multiple disparate tools just to get a complete view of assets, makes the combined the data and derived asset intelligence within Certero so much more powerful, efficiently powering multiple technology governance programs:

The fastest discovery solutions in the West (& North, East, South)

Certero provides the fastest discovery of existing and new IT assets possible (minutes, not weeks), using a range of network discovery methodologies. The solution can also take inputs from existing sources such as Active Directory to quickly fill any gaps in the asset repository.

To further speed accelerate the time-to-value further, Certero can be run as a fully-SaaS solution with minimal requirements for on-premises resources.

Supported Platforms & Device Types

Certero can identify computers running on all major enterprise platforms, including:

Hardware inventory to support all use cases

Unlike many inventory solutions that are primarily designed to support just one case, Certero is built to support multiple needs, from Hardware Asset Lifecycle to Software Asset Management, IT Service Management to Security and Technology Governance.

Certero captures a full hardware configuration inventory for all device types and retains this data in the Unified Platform’s central asset repository where it is available to all Certero products and users.

Focused software inventory & prioritization

With thousands of applications installed on your desktops and servers, Certero’s prioritized reporting makes it easy to focus on the applications you need to manage the most. Full software recognition comes courtesy of the global Software Recognition Database and is available in all Certero products across the Unified Platform, supporting compliance, license optimization, self-service and automating tasks like re-harvesting and patching.  

Software usage tracking

To support use cases from compliance to spend management, Certero automatically tracks the usage of software titles, making it easy to highlight which applications are being under-used and should be either re-harvested or retired.  

Cloud inventory

The unified Certero platform can also give you visibility and control over your cloud assets. Vitado by Certero is a new multi-cloud asset management solution powered by the Certero platform and includes dedicated modules for your biggest PaaS and IaaS spends. Vitado provides centralised multi-Cloud visibility and supports uniform governance pactices, cost-management and reporting across cloud multiple cloud environments.
