I'm going to go out on a limb here and say you want to audit the softwares that are installed on the PC's within your domain.  If this is the case I would use Spiceworks, it's completely free, fairly easy to set up and  do what you want.  The information is not instantaneous but gathered over a time.

Run Resource Monitor (Internal windows tools) and check system activity to find out which program is using system resources.

I'm glad my answer was chosen but Andrew Wright on Thu Mar 09 2017 at 07:43:03 GMT+0100 (CET) suggested using Spiceworks before I did.  I just wanted to make that clear and support his suggestion,  so probably he deserves the best answer and not me. Anyway kind of happy to get some points.
