IBM Endpoint Manager for Software Use Analysis is an application for IBM Endpoint Manager customers which gathers information about installed software and hardware in a customer's infrastructure. It helps companies to assess if they are compliant with IBM and other software vendors' software licensing requirements. Starting from version 9.0, you can monitor PVU and RVU MAPC consumption of IBM products under full and subcapacity licenses. Software Use Analysis helps you to understand current license consumption, and to predict and plan future license consumption, and to optimize license costs.
