LICENSE DASHBOARD PORTAL
(Please note, License Dashboard Portal is not included for bands E & F but can be purchased separately)
License Dashboard Portal helps organizations share software usage monitoring information in an intuitive BI application across business departments. You can now optimize the value of data collated and held across the different products within the License Dashboard technology platform. Furthermore, License Dashboard Portal makes your data accessible and meaningful to any business unit / department involved in the SAM process.
License Dashboard Portal will provide the ability to report on the key data relating to the License Inventory. The intuitive reporting platform provides a ‘Notification’ dashboard. The License Records Notifications show an overview of the License Records workspace in License Manager.
License Dashboard Portal has Role Specific Views, example as CEO you require the headline figures of your organization’s financial exposure and license compliance risk available to you in a quick to digest format, whenever you need. Traditional SAM reports via a spreadsheet can be cumbersome and require time-spent by the IT team to produce. License Dashboard Portal changes all of that.
Your customized dashboard view takes information directly from your License Manager SAM tool and presents a clear, point in time, overview of your organization’s licensing status. No more spreadsheets, no more wordy explanations.
License Dashboard Portal allows businesses to tailor role specific views to end users within the business. 2 named users are provided dependant on tiering, if additional users are required users can be purchased. Allowing additional resources to see the data held within the portal.
