Software MeteringInformation is knowledge
The numbers tell the tale
Having a firm grip on costs is quite important for most organizations. Excessive software costs coming from unnecessary renewals or over-compliance on expensive software can very easily stack up to large amounts. IT Managers who are looking for ways to reduce the IT expenses will quickly appreciate the insight Scense Software Metering will bring.
Scense Software Metering
Scense Software Metering will track the usage of applications on all workstations and store this information in the central database from which clear and informative reports are generated.
Scense comes with several preset reports that show application usage in several ways. Reports can be added and modified.
Unused- or underutilized applications cost just as much as any other application, in terms of license- and maintenance costs. Identify these applications to save time and money.
To make sure you’re in compliance with your current software licenses, you can keep an eye on peak- and concurrent use of applications.
Simple and fast by design
With Scense Explorer you can switch on software metering for individual applications. The software metering data flow is optimized for performance. Each step in the data collection mechanism is simple and fast by design. Raw data coming from the workstations is immediately stored in the database. Then the background consolidation process will take the raw data and turn it into structured presentable data. Some data needs extensive calculation before presentable data is available, like concurrent- or peak usage over a certain time span. That’s when the analysis process will take the structured data and generate new calculated data from it.
