A fundamental element of any Device Management is discovery and inventory of devices an organization is trying to manage in its IT and data center environment. Discovery must be non-invasive, easy to administer, efficient, thorough, accurate, broad in scope, and responsive to network changes.

Discovery is a process of identifying all Dell EMC hardware devices in your network, such as PowerEdge servers, EqualLogic storage, and PowerConnect switches. It is an unobtrusive way of searching for all networked devices and providing an analysis of each device such as software, memory, components, and serial number. The Inventory Report provides information about all discovered devices such as device health, available memory, and installed software.
