Alloy Software, Inc., a leading provider of service management and asset management solutions, today announced the immediate availability of Alloy Discovery 6.5. The latest version of Alloy Discovery offers several enhanced features that help medium and enterprise businesses manage their growing IT environments.

Supporting Windows, Linux and Mac operating systems, Alloy Discovery is the clear choice for any environment looking to track and manage their hardware and software inventory. Providing both agentless and agent-based audit tools, Alloy Discovery is powerful yet flexible, and is capable of capturing hardware and software inventory data for single- and multi-domain networks, remote (WAN) sites, isolated networks and standalone computers.

New features and functionality of Alloy discovery 6.5 include:

  • Improved SNMP Handling: Enhancements to SNMP v3 authentication and privacy settings as well as the ability to automatically import discovered SNMP devices for integration with financial details and service history.
  • Hypervisor Support: Audit and gather information about Hypervisors and virtual machines from a number of platforms such as Microsoft Hyper-V, VMware ESX, VMware ESXi, Xen, Citrix XenServer, and more.
  • Concurrent Licensing Model: Allows IT staff with multiple shifts to share licensing costs and save money.
  • Reporting Enhancements: The new version adds support for the RDL format (Microsoft Report Definition Language), providing the capability to use Microsoft SQL Server Reporting Services as an alternative to Crystal Reports.

“IT environments tend to grow in different shapes, sizes and complexity creating challenges for organizations to track and manage hardware and software, and more importantly, deliver responsive support to their users,” explained Vladimir Vinogradsky, President and CEO at Alloy Software. “The new Alloy Discovery offers flexible tools to track and manage IT assets across disparate networks and operating systems, making it easy to keep pace with organizational change and business needs.”

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets. In this session, we will use customer use cases...
