Is anyone aware of a tool which can be used to collate information including installed software, hardware, network devices, configuration etc, and automatically produce a report including the results?

We used to use TrackIT which is a great auditing & job tracking tool. Due to the restructure in our I.T support we no longer need it but for a start (as well as my previous job) it was great!  You can schedule reporting times, fault logging if there is a system error, etc and the audit reports are very detailed!

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

I use WinAudit

http://www.pxserver.com/WinAudit.htm

It has a user gui but you can set it so that doesnt show - all the user then sees on login is a small transparent window saying "Your PC is currently being audited" for a few seconds

It's freeware even for commercial use, doesnt hog the PC while scanning, and I use a SQL db and IIS with a bunch of asp and scripts to populate a database with the results

Small download, very customizable, small footprint, gives you full network (all network devices), IP's, computer names & software installed and as a benefit, does real time monitoring to show you what new software installs occur.
