Take control of your IT lifecycle management costs
BMC FootPrints Lifecycle Management
Industry analysts estimate that 80% of the cost of corporate workstation ownership occurs after the initial purchase. In any reasonably sized organization that can quickly amount to a staggering overhead and a massive drain on your IT budget.
If your IT budget is getting squeezed, then controlling and minimizing your workstation lifecycle costs is likely to be one of your highest priorities – particularly if you’re migrating your users to Windows® 7.
BMC FootPrints® Lifecycle Management software helps you minimize your costs by streamlining your entire IT asset lifecycle - from purchase to recycle or disposal - and by managing it more effectively. It will automate the complexities of asset tracking and provide you with accurate, up-to-date and complete asset intelligence.
Freedom to simply…increase the return on your IT-asset investments
FootPrints Lifecycle Management gives you a single, unified console to centralize the lifecycle management of your Windows, MacOS®, Linux® or VMware® workstations. You’ll be able to discover and manage workstations, audit their hardware and software inventory, push patches, and deploy software to them whether they’re on a LAN or over the Internet – from your desktop and without the need for a VPN.
With FootPrints Lifecycle Management you’ll have access to an incredibly powerful set of integrated tools for incident & problem management, patch management, inventory management, remote desktop management, deployment management and configuration management. Each of these tools works together and from a common Configuration Management Database (CMDB) so you can better manage your assets, understand their relationships, and link them to their financial records for more efficient and accurate budgeting and planning.
One console. One agent.
Often, Lifecycle Management solutions can place a burden on your network, as each component requires its own agent to communicate with the management console. FootPrints Lifecycle Management ensures your network performance never suffers. It uses a single, common agent running on all your managed workstations and servers. Agent deployment has never been this simple, and our one-agent approach means your network, and IT department, won’t miss a beat.
