Tools4ever, the market leader in Identity & Access Management (Idm), solutions, has added a new feature to its Idm solution, UMRA. The UMRA Real Use Dashboard offers IT managers and system/application administrators a uniform overview of actual usage of applications by individual employees and departments, including the frequency of use. The dashboard also allows them to map out licensing costs in real time and to take action where relevant. For instance, it is possible to immediately revoke applications that remain unused for a longer period of time. If employees are not actively using an application, UMRA can automatically notify them that they are incurring unnecessary licensing costs.
Faced with rapidly mounting licensing costs, companies are looking for an effective and simple way to control these costs in real time. By creating an interface between the UMRA Real Use Dashboard and their Facility Management system, organizations can gain insight into the total licensing costs and the usage status of their application(s). The dashboard also provides other relevant information, such as the number of times an application has been launched by an employee, the number of minutes an application has been used or has remained idle. UMRA can store information on any application in its database, complement it with licensing data and display the combined information on the dashboard.
Jacques Vriens, Tools4ever's general manager, comments: “It is logical for organizations to critically scrutinize their IT expenses. They want to minimize the licensing costs where possible, but find it difficult to gain insight into which software applications are being used by which employee. UMRA now features a new dashboard that offers IT managers a solution for simple and effective license management.“
