managed device

A computer of any kind (desktop, notebook, VDI instance, virtual machine, and so on) on which the FlexNet inventory agent is installed to manage local collection of software and hardware inventory, and transfer the collected information to an assigned inventory beacon.

There are alternative ways to collect inventory, such as using Zero-footprint inventory or gathering inventory with a third-party product such as ILMT or Microsoft SCCM. In these cases the target computers are not called managed devices, since this term refers exclusively to the installation of FlexNet software agents to manage inventory collection and upload.
