After creating some software metering rules a year ago, we are finding that we have a lot of unused expensive (licensed) software installed. We would like to reclaim some of these licenses.
What's the best way to create a SCCM collection of devices that have not used a particular application in "x" days? Can I use my existing Software Metering rules?
The SystemCenterDudes have a post on this topic, but it references a multi-part post on using Asset Intelligence instead of Software Metering (AUTOMATICALLY UNINSTALL UNUSED APPLICATIONS WITH SCCM
, WHY SHOULD YOU USE ASSET INTELLIGENCE IN SCCM 2012
). We don't currently have Asset Intelligence enabled. Is this a feature worth configuring? Some of the "phone home to Microsoft" concerns me a little bit.
Any advice is greatly appreciated!
