    Questions about Application suite and packages

    Rookie

       

       

       

       

      I have some questions about  the  software inventory, What 's the different between Application Suite and Packages ? 

       

       

      and Why it need to separate to 2 types?

       

       

       

       

       

      Regards,

          Readers Digest Version....

           

          Application Suites is basically everything listed in your add and remove programs (expected nested entries since LANDesk still does not support those)

           

           

           

          Packages is from Software License Monitoring (SLM)  - files your are tracking with SLM

           

           

           

          You need both becuase add and remove programs does not always list information such as version, file names, etc..., whereas packages do. Also SLM gives you the flexibility to add file information that is not listed in Application Suites (version, path, company information, etc...)
