Introducing Niagara Asset Manager
If you are looking for an easy, unified means of managing and securing all installed Niagara licenses across your own buildings or those of your customers, here is the answer: The Niagara Asset Manager is a powerful online tool that simplifies every aspect of making sure that devices running Niagara are covered by Software Maintenance Agreements. It provides a centralized, brand-agnostic view of key Niagara license details. For Niagara License Administrators, the cloud-based Niagara Asset Manager is always at their fingertips, accessible through a Niagara-Community Single Sign-on credential. It eliminates the need to maintain manual and error-prone spreadsheets.
Features and Benefits
The cloud-based Niagara Asset Manager tool is constantly being updated in response to customer needs and requests. Some significant enhancements include:
- An updated user interface with a modernized, intuitive UI design
- An enhanced search filter that makes it easier and faster to locate specific details about registered assets
- Tagging support that facilitates efficient organizing and sorting of Niagara assets
The over-arching benefit of Niagara Asset Manager for customers overseeing large Niagara deployments is that, once they have registered with Niagara Asset Manager, they have taken the first step toward the creation of an enterprise-wide proposal for licensing all their Niagara assets. With the asset management tool, it’s easier for customers to achieve a single renewal date for all enrolled assets, a single invoice for all license contracts, and most importantly, easier enforcement that all Niagara instances are up-to-date with the latest cyber-security and feature/function enhancements of our software framework.
To better work with our end-customers toward these goals and to encourage initial Niagara Asset Manager registrations and enrollment of assets, Tridium is rolling out the Enterprise SMA Initiative. This limited-time program offers generous grace periods for out-of-compliance assets.
