Irish tool vendor iQuate are making good inroads with their agentless discovery technology.
German tool vendor Aspera have über-sophisticated license management technology but no dedicated inventory solution.
Aspera must also be pleased with iQuate’s Oracle certification, since it effectively gives Aspera Oracle certification by proxy, a very useful utility in their arsenal of features when selling to the worlds largest enterprise customers (See other accredited Oracle partners here).
“We have already worked together at the request of a shared multi-national customer, who immediately understood how both products complement each other. This announcement moves that relationship to a new level, as it enables Aspera’s SmartTrack to be automatically populated with complex inventory data for all our customers.” Pat Durkin, CEO iQuate.
