We would like to improve our enterprise risk management by showing:

What installed software is End of Support (the vendor no longer providing security updates)

Software life cycle dates for installed software (i.e. give us the ability to see what software will be coming out of support in the next year, etc)

Ideally this information could automatically be provided by Altiris for very common software (Windows, Adobe, Oracle, etc) but would allow for manual entry for custom or uncommon programs. 

Having this capability would allow IT managment to get a better view of current risk created by out of support software and also approaching software risks.
