FlexNet Usage Capture: Features

Enable Pay-for Use Models with Usage-Based Trust but Verify Software Licensing and Compliance Models


Enhanced Usage Capture Support

Application producers can enforce application usage sharing (report back) by querying the local license server to identify the last time data was shared, the queued amount and then implement business policies to reduce loss from overuse, ensure continuous compliance and increase revenues.

Enhanced Capture Usage Events

Send usage data from cloud, SaaS and on-premises applications to FlexNet Operations (entitlement management system) to enable usage and consumption-based models.

Data capture units of measure include:

  • # of compilations
  • # of characters translated
  • # of drawings rendered
  • # of CPU minutes
  • # of data converted
  • # of gigs stored
  • # of email messages sent
  • # of campaigns managed
  • # of pictures sent

Enhanced Selective License Checkout

Selective license checkout increases producers’ licensing flexibility by extending license policies on checkout based on vendor-specific configurations. Further, features and quantity can be checked-out incrementally as they’re needed (just-in-time) which increases application development efficiency and performance.
