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

Well, in my opinion, SCCM is a good tool for any kind of scenario, but if I had to choose I would say it's great mostly for big companies that have hundreds of employees. I wouldn't say SCCM is really needed for small companies with just a few employees where you can do deployments and upgrades manually.

Pros

  • One place to track, document and analyze all your Asset Management queries.
  • Love the new layout. It gives you quite a few options to customize your dashboard.

  • It allows me to increase the response capacity to the requirements of the users to keep the information organized and accessible.
  • It allows me to build a really reliable database.
  • It allows me to automate processes and establish a single point of contact per user.
  • It is a very good tool to generate follow-up reports.

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.

  • Apart from the steep price, there is absolutely nothing to dislike about this product!
  • Huge learning curve, requires a lot of training.
  • Requires many prerequisites for installing SCCM on a Windows Server.

I've given this rating because once you start Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager, it takes a little while to open and sometimes to open collections as well. Other than this, it's performance is fairly good. I haven't used features other than patching, software deployment, and asset tracking though, so I can't provide an in-depth review of its performance. For what I use, it's fairly good.

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 didn't compare any others. Our predecessors had already ordered the software but it was never installed. When I arrived I installed it and implemented it throughout the whole system after receiving training.

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.

  • We were short staffed and this allowed us to install software and image machines where we needed 2 more FTEs. This was able to do that process with very little human interaction and reduced our need to hire more employees.
  • Nurses and front line staff who were registering patients needed IT to very quickly remote into their machine and fix problems and the remote assistance to help us resolve problems faster than and remote assistance tool we found. There is an option to allow direct access with or without asking permission. Our staff didn't want the software to ask permission, they just wanted the problem fixed.
  • Our EMR vendor releases patches all the time and we were going around to each PC installing the patches one by one. This allowed us to push out the software to all machines and get a detailed report on success and failure.
