About Marimba's Software Change Management Offerings
Marimba's Software Change Management offerings help companies distribute software to virtually any end point in their networked enterprise. In addition to software distribution capabilities, Marimba also provides companies with policy management technology enabling IT resources to pre-determine how and when software updates are distributed, installed, repaired and removed. This technology also includes browser based reporting capabilities that provide help desk and asset management personnel with real-time status on software deployments.

Marimba's Windows Migration solution reduces the costs and time traditionally required to upgrade an entire organization to a new Windows operating system by automating the process of tracking software inventory and addressing the planning, provisioning, deployment and ongoing management/repair of applications and operating system service packs. And Marimba's software distribution offerings are then used to automate the deployment of user-specific applications and content to each end point in an organization on the new operating system.
