New Provance Management Packs Now Available for Microsoft System Center 2012 SP1

Provance has released new versions of its critically acclaimed process management packs for Microsoft System Center 2012. Available now, the Provance IT Asset Management Pack, Data Management Pack and Bar Code feature support for Microsoft System Center 2012 SP1, Windows 8, Windows Server 2012 and Microsoft SQL Server 2012. The releases also feature performance enhancements and expanded language support that includes English, French, German and now Russian.

“In 2010, Provance pioneered the development of process management packs to add enhanced functionality to Microsoft System Center, introducing the first third-party management pack for Service Manager,” said Gord Watts, Vice President at Provance. “Over the last three years of constant innovation, we’ve significantly evolved our System Center product offerings, and are tremendously excited to unveil and demonstrate this new and exceptionally impressive roster of solutions.”

The Provance process management packs are software extensions that run natively within Microsoft System Center 2012 to supplement the service delivery and infrastructure management of the Microsoft Server and Cloud Platform. Provance provides three management pack products for Microsoft System Center 2012 – Service Manager:

  • The Provance IT Asset Management Pack adds powerful IT Asset Life Cycle Management and Software Asset Management to Service Manager, which gives visibility and control of the hardware and software that make up client, cloud computing and datacenter environments;
  • The Provance Data Management Pack simplifies, speeds and automates the process of getting data into and out of the Service Manager CMDB, while simultaneously improving data consistency and accuracy; and,
  • Provance Bar Code supplements the automated discovery capabilities of Configuration Manager with physical inventory and location tracking that dramatically reduces the manual effort and human error associated with gathering and entering asset data.

Provance is a bronze sponsor of Microsoft Management Summit 2013 and will be showcasing the new process management packs from its location at the center of the Solutions Expo Hall, booth 417. Microsoft Management Summit 2013 takes place from April 8th to 12th at the Mandalay Bay Hotel in Las Vegas, Nevada. Information about the new Provance products and a free evaluation version are available immediately at
