Question:

What constitutes Generic RAW data when importing Software inventory information in CA Software Asset Manager (CASAM)?  What types of data would fall under the generic category? 

Environment:
CA Software Asset Manager, any release
Answer:

When importing software inventory information into CA Software Asset Manager, Generic RAW data is used to import any software inventory information that does not fall into the other RAW categories, like ARP, MSI, File, ISO Tag, etc.

Typically it is used for Unix or other software inventory that is not installation based.
