When it comes to licensing software products, organizations want to maximize flexibility and manageability, while at the same time minimize what they spend..
Flexibility means using the software anywhere, anytime, on any machine, by any authorized user. Manageability demands the need to control, audit and report on license usage. Organizations may need to control who can acquire a license to use the software, and even when (e.g. 9am PT – 5pm PT) they can use the it. They may also want to reserve a license for a specific user in order to guarantee access when needed. Additionally, regulatory and compliance requirements impose additional stipulations and restrictions for tracking software access.
