View Full Version : utility for analsysing pc's

23-12-2002, 10:46 PM
I am about to start a new job with a company that has neglected it's IT systems for quite sometime. They have a mixture of operating systems (win 3.11, 95 & 98), they have a mixture of pc's (486, pentiums) & the hardware is mainly supplied from local pc assemblers (of course a range of different ones). Application software is of course a colourful selection of old & new. Lastly, they have three seperate networks setup (including a number of stand alone pc's) that do not communicate to with each other. I estimate they have 30-50 pc's all up.

My desire is to standardise the hardware & software over time, but first I need to perfrom an audit on what we currently have.

Until the networks are setup correctly, I know that I will not be able to run a network program to gather this information. So I am looking for an application that I can run on each machine that will basically audit the local hardware & software & send the information to a printer or file.

Cost isn't an issue for a good product.

"Aida" is a great program, gave it to one of my lecturer's and he loved it. Think it comes in 3-4 different versions.

I havn't seen bambi so can't comment. But sisoft has won awards for its product. It is also grea for doing diagnostic work on computers to find their weak points or help tweake.
