Whatever the source of software audit data, License Manager can import it
Whether your organization has an established IT Asset Management toolset, has committed to using a specific vendor or is just starting out, License Dashboard License Manager has multiple options to import software audit data.
Third Party Tools
License Dashboard recognizes that many organizations focusing on Software Asset Management (SAM) and license compliance already have some form on IT inventory solution in place. That's why License Dashboard offers a variety of Audit Connectors for every discovery solution from Microsoft SCCM to Altiris Inventory, from Novell ZENworks to FrontRange/Centennial Discovery. Whatever inventory solution you're using; if you can find it, License Manager can import it.
License Dashboard Discovery
For organizations that either don't have (or aren't satisfied with) an audit solution, or who require additional network coverage, License Dashboard Discovery automatically integrates with License Manager to provide a full audit of software across the network.

Working with Multiple Solutions
With more and more organizations employing multiple discovery technologies for different locations or platforms, consolidating all this information can be a real challenge. Not for License Manager; data from multiple sources can be imported and cleansed automatically into a single software audit repository.
Automatic Audit Cleansing & Filtering
Many Discovery solutions are great at finding everything on the network, but that includes a lot of 'noise' that has no meaning in license management terms. License Dashboard License Manager automatically filters and cleanses data imported from all audit sources so that only recognizable commercial applications are presented in the license management interface.
