The prerequisite for a Java installation discovery is an inventory solution that allows you to identify your Java installations including version and edition numbers, support dates, license types and installed patch levels.
Within the framework of our Java Assessment Initiative, we grant free access to Profiler DNA, our software identiﬁcation system and the related Portfolio Management Platform as part of a Proof of Value Agreement to customers using Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM), Miss Marple (MMEE) or another inventory solution compatible with the Portfolio Management Platform. This free access is limited to 14 days, after which the license key expires. The license only grants access to a refined report of the identified Java installations. To install Profiler DNA you have to follow a provided video tutorial.
The Portfolio Management Platform consists of the inventory, interfaces and the profiler service. The inventory recognizes the hardware and determines the used software. Although the profiler is capable of recognizing installed software for over 14,000 manufacturers and 800,000 releases across your environment, for the scope of the Java Self-Assessment Initiative, you will be granted free access to a refined report of the identified Java installations only.
During the 14 days while your license key is active, we will provide:
- the results of the Java discovery
- the Application Template to fill in and
- your personal Interpretation Report
This report will give you the data you need to make the best decisions for your organization going forward.
If you require consulting or advice on the results of your report, we offer a chargeable consultancy service.
