The AR Licensing Management application is designed to track AR User and ITSM Application based licenses to provide Real-Time, Historical and Concurrent Trending statistics and usage.

AR System Trending

How does it work?

By analysing the results produced using the OOB reports and collected data, companies can understand the license usage and trending of the AR System and ITSM Applications (including RKM, SRM and Work Order Management), to make informed decisions on how best to allocate licenses to users.  Take the "guess work" out of license ratio's by using accurate data to show the usage and trending. 

You can view the license usage for each user for given time period which will determine where users have been allocated licenses but never utilise or access the applications, allowing for re-allocation and improved distribution the installed licenses.

We understand the importance of data security to a company, which is why the AR Licensing Management application is installed, configured and executed on the customer's environment.

As an active solution and not passive, we provide real-time and historical license usage results in addition to real-time and historical concurrent trending and license consumption results.

Many current tools available only provide historical license usage data, and we believe the additional functionality and results provided are essential to making the best informed decision surrounding licensing by providing the data necessary to make that decision.

  • Save thousands of $$ on new license costs by re-allocating your current licenses for maximum gain 
  • Efficient use of current license allocations
  • Determine where re-allocation of AR System and ITSM Application licenses can occur before purchasing additional licenses
  • Predict future license needs and allocations by analysing current trending and usage results allowing for more efficient license purchases
  • Maintain license compliance within BMC's licensing models
  • Improve your current Floating license allocation ratio's e.g. 4/1, 5/1, etc using the included comprehensive reports
