There are many.

Microsoft's SMS is probably the most common, but you will find many companies provide tools which will run on client machines and provide both a hardware and software inventory, in a central database.

Network Associates also has a tool, though the name escapes me.

Hope that helps get you started.

Many good ones are free, although there are a lot of assett management tools that are commercial. Check out the Business Software Alliance at:
for a free fairly comprehensive one. If you just use MS, get theirs from their website.
These are both free.

Quite a few

Quite a few out there, depending on how much money you want to spend. Personally, I think Tivoli is pretty good. Unlike SMS, Tivoli also lets you push installs and upgrades for non-MS programs out to workstations. This is assuming you're working with MS systems though.
