FileWave at Apple Expo
FileWave has announced new, version 2.5 of its flagship software change management suite at Apple Expo 2005. The company said that both applications will include automated installation of the FileWave Client on new Mac OS X systems on the network as well as a connection to Asset Trustee. This new connection can be used to create new client groups in FileWave, based on certain Asset Trustee data such as computer type, OS, or amout of RAM installed. Asset Trustee 7.5 also allows the entry of purchased licenses and the comparison between installed and purchased licenses. Version 7.5 also features software metering, which provides a proper count of software usage.
"FileWave 2.5 and Asset Trustee 7.5 present significant new opportunities
for businesses to streamline software change and asset management," said Ben
Forsyth, CEO of FileWave, Inc. "The licensing and software usage
monitorning of Asset Trustee 7.5 will help organizations to comply with
internal and external licensing and accounting regulations, and to make more
informed purchasing decisions based on license profiles. The new ability of
FileWave 2.5 and Asset Trustee 7.5 to share data allows organizations to
better plan their software deployments, upgrades, and procurement based on
hardware and software profiles of each workstation."
