Tally Systems Releases TS.Census for Microsoft SMS
- By Scott Bekker
Tally Systems Corp. released a new integration between
Microsoft Systems Management Server (SMS) and its asset tracking software,
TS.Census. The new TS.Census 1.1 will allow network managers to import PC
hardware and software asset information directly from TS.Census into SMS
versions 2.0 or 1.2.
TS.Census uses Tally Systems’ Census recognition technology
to enhance SMS with product-oriented and accurate details about PC hardware and
software, such as language edition and serial number, and hardware make, model,
asset tag, and serial number.
The new TS.Census SMS integration uses .MIF file formats to
enable SMS to gather and report TS.Census inventory data. Once imported,
TS.Census data appears as standard SMS inventory data. TS.Census also offers
complete asset historical tracking and inventory scan-on-demand, as well as a
client-server database, and TCP/IP-based infrastructure.
