This version of Maven was specifically designed for smaller IT shops (less than 1000 users that do not utilize SMS or SCCM server) that are managed by a small team of administrators. In these smaller shops we know that the IT personnel are relied on to be "Jack of all trades". Maven Small Business Edition can be used to leverage the user and system information found in your companies Active Directory, SQL database or Access databases. You may also want to query Active Directory via SQL Server (you can use any version of SQL, including the Express versions). Please dowload the following article more information.
We recommend that you use the Maven database; designed specifically for companies that do not have a systems management database. With this database you will be able to track all user logins, as well as their distinguishedname, and the Active Directory site location for the computers they log into.
Maven Small Business works in a single or multi-domain environment. Please see the feature comparison table for more information about the differences between Maven Enterprise Edition and Maven Small Business Edition.
