How can we improve Configuration Manager?

Expand Software Tag inventory to include optional elements

Some software vendors include optional elements that are not gathered by the Asset Intelligence Software Tag Inventory. Adobe for example places the serial number in this section, and without being able to gather that serial number its impossible to tell what version of Acrobat is installed on a PC without writing convoluted scripts/CIs. Please expand the software tag inventory scan to include optional elements. Example of an Adobe software tag below

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<swid:software_identification_tag xsi:schemaLocation="http://standards.iso.org/iso/19770/-2/2008/schema.xsd software_identification_tag.xsd"
xmlns:swid="http://standards.iso.org/iso/19770/-2/2008/schema.xsd&quot; xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance">
