New Features for CA ITAM - Software Asset Manager 4.2.1 include:

The new extension of the Microsoft SQL Server metric engine adds more flexibility by allowing to define hints for individual devices.
· Cluster Restriction Support for Generic Processor Metric Engine: The metric engine Generic Processor now supports cluster restrictions. The support can be enabled via a setting in the license metrics.
· Ability to Share Dashlets for Table Views: It is now possible to share dashlets for table views with groups of dashboard users. Group managers can define and maintain these user groups.
· New Connectors: The following new standard connectors are available:
Microsoft Active Directory: This connector extracts Active Directory users and computers by using the import preprocessor "csv_ldap_connector." The extracted data will be imported into the users, accounts, and devices tables.
BMC ADDM 11: This connector extracts devices, device relations, and software raw data out of ADDM 11 into the application.
