Key Capabilities and Features

  • Vector’s PC Discovery is a low-touch process designed to create a simple catalog of PCs to be reference by higher level Components such as Inventory, Application Package Policy Manager (PPM), Software Usage Monitoring and Software Distribution.
  • The PC Discovery process underpins every Vector solution that requires a catalog of PCs.
  • PC Discovery also enables customers to invest in selected Vector solutions without necessarily duplicating the results of an incumbent inventory product or in-house method. For example, the PC name, OS and IP address delivered by PC Discovery is enough to enable several customers to exploit Software Distribution for rapid, flexible deployment of configuration updates. Software Distribution can of course exploit the rich data which Vector’s PC Hardware Inventory and PC Software Inventory Components deliver to the Vector IT Asset Database, but it can function without.
  • The PC Discovery process can also install the multi-function Vector Asset Management agent, but the functions performed by the agent are pre-defined, and can be restricted to no more than the initial OS and IP discovery.
