solutions wanted Inventory for IT

Recommended Posts

I work for an IT department that manages a large number of databases, automated reports, desktop computers, etc. They have given me the task of finding an application which will inventory all of these components. For example, we will store database information such as filename, physical location, username, password, etc. As I see it, one of the key challenges of this project is to come up with an easy way to maintain the records, and I’m thinking a Web interface would be best. Additionally, some items need to be grouped together into a system. For example, a Web application may consist of several databases as well as a server. And of course we’re going to need to create reports.

Does anyone have knowledge of an existing application that will do this?

Many thanks,

My son has an application for the school where he works. It is in FM 8.5, and is used for inventory of computers as an asset and its attached components, repair history, etc. He is extending the DB to handle support calls, repair calls from the other campuses. He is always updating and changing to fit the need of the school. Send me your email and I can send you what he has to the moment.

      I am looking at a solution for inventory.  One important request is that they need to be able to calculate the inventory for previous dates.  E.g. the beginning of the quarter compared to today or this day last year.
      My thoughts so far to be able to do this is to have an article file and a stock movements file, all values and quantities of stock will be held in the movements file.  Basically the last related record will be in the movements table will be current value, but we can also find the last related related record based on any date. 
      Will this be a fast way to calculate or slow?  I don't want to start and then find things slow down on me too much.
      After this I will also need to be able to age the stock.

      We are working with a medical non-profit working in Latin America, running on much older hardware.  Seeking older individual or group/site license seats of FMP & FMS 13, 14, or 15.
      We need a bunch.  We could buy site license seats, or simple 1-off licenses.
