AppClarity - Great for both SAM and License Reclamation

Reviewed by:DanRichings Reviewed on:07/08/2012

We've had AppClarity in place for a while now, alongside Microsoft Configuration Manager as our inventory source. We have used the SCCM connector in both our SCCM 2007 and more recently SCCM 2012 environments. On both occasions, the setup was incredibly easy. Installation, configuration and full data import was accomplished in under an hour to the point where we were able to start extracting data. The licensing, installation count and usage figures are all great and provide valuable information. The main benefit we've found however, has been the license reclaim facility where unused software can be uninstalled from targeted machines without the need for specific software metering rules in SCCM, additional clients or special uninstallation programs. Applications not used in a definable time period can be removed using their native uninstall or a configurable command line. We've saved thousands by removing licensable software that wasn't used within a 90-day period using AppClarity.
The only critism is around data extraction. Whilst there are many reports available within the product to get at the data required, at the time of writing this review, many of the views within the GUI do not provide the ability to export visible data which requires having to find and generate the appropriate report, or retrieve the data manually from the database. Whilst a minor inconvenience it does not impact on the performance of the product.
Additional Comments
This product has been worth the money for the reclaim feature alone and there doesn't appear to be another product out there that can perform this function with the same level of success or configurability. A great product that just works, straight out of the box!
