Asset Manager

Asset Manager is great for people who understand the Software Development Lifecycle and are familiar with the terminology, however for a new assistant, or a new novice user, the software can seem over-whelming with the rather confusing terminology and a multitude of tabs that open up. It's definitely great software to use for a professional PM, however an assistant would be lost in the tools being offered.

SCCM

The whole idea of SCCM is great. Just wish that the features that it has actually work seamlessly. It seems we are always having systems fall off from being a client and/or they are not able to be updated. I am yet to have any success in deploying software and having it actually make it to the host machine.

Cons

  • Need more video tutorials - Although HP has great FAQs and has included the keyword search for topics, but some video tutorials would be great to help a new user.
  • Overwhelming at times. I remember when I first started using the software, just the magnitude of tools were too much. However even though I don't use half the tools even now, just the possibility of more functions available to me, makes it a great software.
  • Secure Log-in - I would like HP to invest into single sign-on where you don't need to put in your user ID & password constantly. A push notification to a personal device would a great added feature.

  • Imaging takes longer than it did with previous solution.
  • The client-side setup takes a long time to establish a connection after an image, delays software deployment

I find HP Asset Manager useful but sometimes too much data needs to be entered.

Alternatives Considered

HP Asset Manager is definitely enterprise grade, whereas the other asset Management programs I have are specific to either one industry or a smaller locations that might not need the deep analysis & reporting functionalities & tools that are provided by HP. The cost is indeed higher than other programs like Fox Graphic Tracker (Internal Software) and Samange that I have used in the past, but for a large enterprise with multiple ongoing projects, HP Asset Manager is the way to go !

We used Altiris previously to image computers in the organization. The only way we could deploy that was through a network boot, but with SCCM we have an option in Software Center to start an image on a client. This is much easier to understand for users if/when they need to image their computer.

Return on Investment

  • HP Asset Manager is great for compliance purposes. We know we have all the licenses in place when needed for upgrades or yearly reviews. Saves us times.
  • Ability to track & print reports saves PMs time in quartely reviews.
  • Great way to prepare for any presentations by the use of analytical tools which saves us money in investing in other software for presentation purposes.

  • The software deployment solution has saved time and money because a single user can manage the options.
