The Intel Event Response Tool (or ERT since we love our acronyms) is a tool for creating simple vPro workflows and some basic automation around those workflows. There are two primary tools available; a script creator that supports simple 1:1 workflows, and an event response tool (great name eh?) that will listen for events and execute scripts based on those events.

 

The good news is that we’re releasing the tools and all the source code with the tools. The even better news is that the event listener plugins and action plugins have an API so you can create your own if you like. Currently there are plugins for basic functionality (serial over lan, IDER, system defense, power management, etc), but if you wanted to create a plugin that would say, integrate with your trouble ticket system, you can (it’s all .NET based code).
