Not a "must-have" idea, but thought it would be worth airing it out with the community
It would be nice to have an FTP location for file downloads such as reports on assets and incidents, and subsequently the ability to upload data via FTP. My thinking is this could be a lot easier for some to then implement Samanage into their current architecture and could satisfy some of the following scenarios:
- Export data regularly into a reporting engine such as SSRS or Qlikview in order to produce combined reports with other data outside of Samanage. For example a report that combines software installations (Samanage) with software procurement (procurement system)
- Import data on assets regularly from an endpoint management tool such as Altiris
- Scrape data from Samanage reports into an ERP such as SAP
Just a thought really, but I know that quite a lot of other SaaS applications I am using are providing FTP and it makes my life a lot easier with regard to integrating into other systems.
