Question:

Will the CA Software Asset Manager product operate on SQL Server Express edition? 

Environment:
CA Software Asset Manager, 4.x releases
Answer:

We do not recommend using SQL Server Express edition with CA Software Asset Manager, not even for training purposes, as it may not scale to your requirements.  

Please review the CA Software Asset Manager compatibility chart for further information:  https://support.ca.com/phpdocs/0/8572/8572_suppmatrix.pdf
