Software Packaging

Intuitive wizards facilitate the creation of all types of packages ranging from operating systems and applications to system configurations and drivers. Processes and best practices are set up just once, and existing software packages are automatically adapted for use in desktop, server, and virtual environments. This ability to build once and then deploy across the entire network allows for consistent, repeatable deployments with essentially a 100% guarantee that every machine will look the same. With HEAT Client Management customers were able to reduce their time spent on package creation by up to 85%.

System Configuration Automation

Consistently automates not only standardized processes, but also the connections between workflows. The solution automates the packaging, the creation of the corresponding policy, and the linking of policy and package. It analyzes dependencies between packages and takes the dependencies into account during operations. Only a few steps are required to accomplish many IT management functions, reducing Total Cost of Ownership by up to 70% compared to manual IT management. Intuitive dashboards and wizards do much of the heavy lifting, providing automated operation for all types of tasks, even technically difficult ones. Plus, the preset policies keep software and hardware assets up to date without placing additional demands on overburdened IT departments.

Unified Endpoint Management

Provides unified management across physical, mobile, virtual clients, servers, platforms, multi-site networks and delivery methods. Intelligent packaging simplifies management across the heterogeneous infrastructure. All solutions are designed to work together, enabling packages to be created quickly, adapted and reused independently of the infrastructure parameters. The packages are set up just once and will adapt automatically to fat, thin and mobile clients, server infrastructures, and virtual machines, and can be implemented in parallel in these environments.

Unified Endpoint Management

Compliance Enforcement

Traditional task-based management requires IT staff to be responsible for defining, performing, and monitoring the success of all current tasks. This costs time and is a source of error, largely because task-based management makes monitoring the success of actions very difficult. HEAT Client Management features policy-based management, with which IT departments can not only save time, but also respond quicker to changing requirements. Compliance is monitored automatically, and any exceptions to the predetermined policies are flagged immediately so that IT can take necessary actions. The status of the entire software ecosystem is well-defined, transparent, and provable. HEAT Client Management monitors compliance with enabled policies and automatically displays deviations. This means that the IT administrators only have to concern themselves with the exceptions and will have more time for strategic tasks.
