According to customer feedback, this level of asset discovery is critical in today's world of distributed systems and rapidly growing virtual machine technology. Due to shrinking IT budgets and staff, however, it is more and more difficult to get a handle on all of the systems and software accumulating on networks.

"Business operations need to be up and running 24x7 and that means identifying and managing all the machines and software on the network," said Mark Shavlik, CEO, Shavlik Technologies. "Too often managing all these moving parts means IT spends too much time managing hard-to-use software and a systems management infrastructure. By delivering these IT management services from the cloud, we're eliminating both cost and complexity in our on-going quest for simplification of computer management. This next step of levels the playing field so businesses of any size can gain the same technology advantages previously available only to the largest companies with the deepest pockets. Stay tuned, there is much more to follow."
