Conditionally pushing software and patches based on inventory with the K1000
is it possible with kace, to have case look at what a computer has now in its software inventory and push those softwares and patches to a computer after a new base OS is installed on it?
Trying to figure out how to get kace to get the same programs on a machine it had before the OS was upgraded from XP to windows 7, I was hoping the software inventory list could be of some use in this.

We've been updating a department at a time. Before we go into that department we run a report for software in that department (label). Before updating we verify we have a working Windows 7 installer for each app needed, and make sure that department label is associated with the MI. After the Win 7 update, the machines get the label, and that managed installs push the software.
For patches we have a label for new imaged machines. Those machines get patched at a more frequent rate until it eventually drops out of the label for new imaged machines. Depending on how your patching is setup it's fairly easy setup.
