BigFix Inventory V9.2.16 is now available, delivering increased value and demonstrating HCL’s commitment to both HCL and IBM customers.

There are three key features of HCL BigFix Inventory V9.2.16:

  • Equivalence to IBM License Metric Tool (ILMT).
  • Enhanced reporting, granting better license cost optimization and analytics to help your organization better understand how much of your licensed software is actually being used.
  • Enhanced API, allowing new data to enable integrations.

IBM announced on September 24th 2019, that HCL BigFix Inventory V9.2.16 has been verified equivalent to IBM License Metric Tool (ILMT) V9.2.16 for IBM Virtualization Capacity reporting. Organizations that use BigFix Inventory to meet the requirements for IBM Virtualization Capacity licensing may now upgrade their environments to V9.2.16. This release of BigFix Inventory demonstrates HCL’s dedication to our customers, by continuing to deliver a validated alternative to ILMT while providing all of the additional benefits of HCL BigFix Inventory.

Malgorzata Jablonska, Senior Development Manager of BigFix Inventory, emphasized, “We understand sub-capacity customers require the latest releases of BigFix Inventory to be validated by IBM before upgrading their environment, and we will continue to work with IBM to validate future HCL BigFix Inventory releases.”
