  • Page 8: Who Should Read This Guide

    Chapter 7, “Getting help and support,” on page 49 explains how to get support for the System Information Center program and describes the scope of the support that is available. Who should read this guide The IBM System Information Center Administrator’s Guide is intended for administrators, system engineers, network administrators, and customer engineers who need a flexible and affordable asset-inventory management tool that does not require a large client application.
  • Page 9: Chapter 1. About The System Information Center Program

    Chapter 1. About the System Information Center program The System Information Center program provides ways for you to efficiently manage asset inventory and details regarding each asset. Asset information is gathered on client computers and delivered to a central built-in database provided with the program.
  • Page 10: Architecture

    The client agent can be permanently installed on a client computer by downloading it from the Web, from the System Information Center program CD, or from the System Information Center program menu structure. Or, it can be temporarily used when a User uploads asset information to the database. The client agent can also be activated from the client using a command-line interface.
  • Page 11: Features

    Features The System Information Center program is cost-effective software that helps you to manage your inventory without significant resources from the client computer. The program provides the following features: v Easy browser accessibility: Because the System Information Center program is Web-based, you can access it using the Microsoft Internet Explorer 6.0 (or higher) Web browser.
