The ITAM Review

News, reviews and resources for worldwide ITAM, SAM and Licensing professionals.

Podcast Episode 31: Inventory & Discovery

In this Podcast, I am joined by Mathias Knops, Head of Product Management at Aspera to discuss his experience and recommendations regarding Inventory and Discovery.

Since the Aspera solution – SmartTrack, does not feature an Inventory or Discovery element, I was keen to pick his brains on this.

Podcast Topics:

  • About Mathias
  • Aspera SmartTrack
  • The shopping list for Inventory & Discovery
  • Process for determining if customers have the right scope
  • How to be successful in terms of usage with SmartTrack
  • Open source discovery tools
  • The difference between Inventory & Discovery
  • RFI / RFP process
