Stay a step ahead in an evolving hybrid IT environment

The Named User License Consumption and Optimization report has just been released in Flexera One. This report brings a unique optimization capability in the hybrid IT world of subscribed applications that can be used online or on-premises (e.g., Adobe, Microsoft).

How it works

Flexera One SaaS Manager collects the active subscriptions and online usage directly from SaaS applications in your hybrid IT world. On-premises installation and usage data come from the traditional inventory tools such as SCCM or Flexera Agent.

The new report examines, per user, the installed and used application—as well as online usage—consuming the subscriptions. It then creates downgrade recommendations based on optimal costs. Current costs, optimal cost and optimizations are all provided. Simply run the report and get the actionable data to support your license reclamation project today.
