Demonstrations of new features of Casper Suite Version 6.0. will be offered at both events on June 10. "Our goal is to develop innovative software while allowing our product to be user-driven. It feels great to deliver the features that people have asked for, like self-service and resumable downloads," said Product Manager Zach Halmstad.
New features of Casper Suite Version 6.0 include:
A new self-service approach provides end users with on-demand access to the software they need, while reducing IT management time.
* GSX Integration
Integration with Apple's GSX Service provides a totally automated inventory solution by allowing the JAMF Software Server to query the Apple warranty database and populate warranty expirations in the purchasing information fields.
* Resumable Downloads
Managing mobile computers is easier with resumable downloads. This feature allows users to pause and resume downloads whenever a computer is online, without requiring a fresh install of interrupted downloads.
* HTTP Package Distribution:
HTTP distribution of packages enables more efficient management of mobile and home office users by allowing them access to their updates anytime, anywhere.
* CMDB/syslog Compliance:
Our new Configuration Management implementation allows you to track changes made by administrators to your inventory and management systems. The implementation records the change, the user who made the change, and the IP that the change was made from to a log file or a syslog server, making internal and external audits easier.
* Contract Management:
This new feature enhances our inventory solution by providing the ability to attach files like purchase orders or vendor contracts to the inventory database resulting in more accurate purchasing information.
