Streamline

Web-based software asset and license management solution

About Streamline

Streamline by AssetLabs is a software asset management and licensing solution that helps businesses of all sizes streamline data from management solutions such as SCCM and MS MAP. The software ensures compliance with ISO-19770 standards as well as recognizes various license types to help maintain up-to-date data. The tool allows software asset management teams to download Entitlement License Position reports to view all the licensing details in one go.

Streamline offers software categorization and normalization capabilities that enable users to view details of all software installed in a device using the search functionality. Users can also view the complete composition of installed software including license type and title categories by using the application's drill down functionality. The tool also allows teams to modify the production state of a software in order to exempt it from licensing needs.

Streamline applies a cascading downgrade logic to ensure optimal license purchases based on users' software inventory. The solution also offers a LicensePool feature that helps users to identify and provide details about licenses that face a shortage. The tool also provides details on the number of extra licenses available for a software within an organization. Streamline also helps software asset management teams to pull out old licenses instead of buying a new one each time.

Other features offered by Streamline include a centralized view of organization-wide assets, vendor recognition capabilities, declaration of exemption rights, product usage rights applicability, and data import or export. The solution works with KACE, Lansweeper, MAP, Altiris, and other vendors.

Key benefits of Streamline

Fills in critical gaps and doesn't rat you out to Microsoft

Reviewed on 2019/06/19

I've found it a very powerful tool for customers that have used it.

I've found it a very powerful tool for customers that have used it.

Pros

Ongoing, up-do-date inventories that can provide real value and eliminate a lot of repetitive input on the customer's side. Once the customer makes any changes, say to prod/non-prod values, they stay there. I see too many situations where this time consuming task has to be repeated for every true-up.
This product is also a very important alternative to the Microsoft SAM Managed Service Program, which theoretically monitors ongoing compliance but is a boon to MS sales teams, who probably mine the data for all it's worth. It's an invitation to have MS bugging you about upgrading inventoried software, or pitching you for the MS product--which you may already have reviewed and rejected-- where they see an incumbent competitor. The MS program gives me the creeps and I advise customers to stay the heck out of its way.

Cons

It holds a lot of small details, but I say I like it the least mostly because inputting a lot of meta data isn't always fun.

Over all experience was excellent . We had a problem running MS-MAP and their support were really helpful.

Ended upgrading to the next level to get the full Microsoft ELP and support

Pros

Works with a wide range of data sources inc. SCCM, MS_MAP, Altirus, landesk, lansweeper and many more.

SaaS so no tools to deploy, just upload the inventory (excel or CSV) and 24 hours later it's turned into your Microsoft deployment position.

You can do a POC for free which takes the risk out of the purchase and you can see if it's better that you current solution (which it was)

Cons

None really. It was far better that the tool and processes I had used previously. Coverting the raw scan data into licensable products took too long and changed with upgrades

You still have to assign status (prod and non-prod) and make sure the inventory is complete but that goes for any solution.

We want to know our license position with Microsoft at any time. We've been able to effective save money by identify license challenges and solving them before they become a problem. Much more cost effective solution then the big SAM Tools on the market.

Pros

Product Rights Built in allow you to have confidence in the license you require
Software catalog and normalization into product families makes it easy to view products
Categorizatoin of Software allows me to simply see malware, Open Source, etc that is in the environment and act on it

Cons

great job with wintel/desktop type products would be great to do IBM and ORacle in the same way

Pros

So simple, connects directly to my sccm and extracts the software and allows me to instantly see what is licensable and whats not. I can't do this with SCCM alone.
