The central repository which stores the information of the computer audits is an open SQL database. It can be either MSDE (free MS SQL motor), MS SQL Server (7.0 or later) or Oracle (8i or later), and, in all cases, there is free access to the database and to the data stored in it. All the necessary documentation is provided, allowing for integration with the client´s existing systems.
This web application may reside in the same machine as the database, or in separate machines.
The web application which manages the inventory can be accessed from any PC which has HTTP access to the server and MS IE 6.0 or later, or IE version 5.5 updated with some components.
As it is not necessary to install any client software in order to access the inventory, the system administrator may access the data of his/her system from practically any point on the network.
