Good Day,
Please, is there a way I can find a document / pointer where a comprehensive difference is made between TAD4D and Tivoli Endpoint Manager for Software Usage Analysis, please.

Thank you,

    Hello,

    Let me try to summarize the differences, to my best knowledge:

    SUA
    strenghts:

    Windows software inventory
    Rapid time to value, manageability, extensibility
    Easy to use
    Works ok with TAMIT and great w/ TEM

    limitations:

    Not intended for non-Windows software inventory
    Not good for complex license types
    Not usable if management server needs to run non-Windows/non-MS SQL Server
    Not useable for IBM license compliance

    TADd:
    strenghts:

    Unix/Linux/AIX software inventory
    Extensive VM support
    Complete IBM software inventory
    Good for some complex license types
    Management server can be non-MSFT
    Works great with TAMIT

    limitations:

    Not good for non-IBM Windows software inventory
    Not good for time to value, manageability, extensibility
