LAS VEGAS, NV, April 29 /CNW Telbec/ - Provance today introduced two new
IT Asset Management software products for Microsoft System Center at Microsoft
Management Summit 2009. The new version of Provance, further optimized for
Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager 2007, provides new integration
to Microsoft Active Directory and adopts Microsoft SQL Server Reporting
Services as a decision support platform. Provance also unveiled its future
Process Management Pack that will bring IT Asset Management capabilities to
Microsoft System Center Service Manager.
"Microsoft System Center delivers broad management and monitoring
capabilities across the software and hardware assets which comprise IT
infrastructures, helping customers reduce costs and improve overall
operational efficiency," said Larry Orecklin, general manager, System Center
and Virtualization Marketing, Microsoft. "The IT Asset Management capability
that Provance delivers to Microsoft System Center customers further
strengthens and extends our knowledge-driven IT management solutions and
showcases the tremendous extensibility of System Center."
"Enterprises that adopt IT Asset Management see significant financial and
productivity benefits," said Lori Sechio, Founder and CEO of TekMethods, a
leading IT Asset Management Consulting firm. "As an established, independent
provider of IT Asset Management software, Provance brings highly desirable and
important capability to Microsoft System Center."
PROVANCE INTRODUCES TWO NEW IT ASSET MANAGEMENT
SOLUTIONS FOR MICROSOFT SYSTEM CENTER
The Provance products complement Microsoft System Center without any
functional overlap to provide new capabilities for IT Asset Management and
Software Asset Management. Both Provance 4.3 and the Provance IT Asset Process
Management Pack for System Center Service Manager supplement the IT
operational view of System Center with cost, contract and organizational
information. Provance IT Asset Management allows System Center customers to
reduce hardware and software costs, minimize license compliance risk and
provide more efficient and cost-effective IT Service Management.
Provance 4.3 is available immediately. A beta trial of the future
Provance IT Asset Management Pack for Microsoft System Center Service Manger
will begin in Fall 2009. The Provance IT Asset Management Pack will be
available concurrent to the release of Microsoft System Center Service Manager
in the first half of 2010.
Provance will be demonstrating both solutions at Microsoft Management
Summit 2009, booth 338 in Las Vegas until May 1st.
For over 10 years the Provance IT Asset Management solution has been used
by IT organizations in mid- to large sized enterprises and government to drive
down IT costs, increase service management efficiency, and reduce security and
compliance risks. Provance complements the inventory management, discovery and
configuration management capabilities of Microsoft System Center Configuration
Manager 2007 with powerful IT asset lifecycle management and software asset
management. Supporting ITIL(R) and the Microsoft Operations Framework,
Provance strengthens the IT effectiveness of enterprises and government
organizations at every level of the Microsoft Core Infrastructure Optimization
