Executive Summary

Open standards-based client management tools and technology provide IT organizations with the essential management features they need to easily and flexibly support business objectives. Proprietary management solutions can overload systems with nonessential features, lock organizations into specific vendors, increase management costs, and eliminate flexibility. One such standard is the DMTF Desktop and mobile Architecture for System Hardware (DASH), which provides a standard for secure remote management, including out-of-band management, of desktop and mobile systems from multiple vendors. DASH defines a common framework for managing out-of-band clients, giving one the flexibility to accomplish essential management tasks such as remote power and boot control, patching, remote diagnostics, asset inventory, and security in a multi-vendor, distributed enterprise environment.
