Viewing KPIs

Click the KPIs tab to select and to view key performance indicators (KPIs). The KPIs that appear in the Software Asset Management console, in graphical format, are as follows:

  • By Compliance
  • By Manufacturer
  • Purchase versus Deployed
  • Products by Supplier

The Purchased versus Deployed KPI displays data for only the following license types:

  • Per Instance
  • Per Copy
  • Per Copy Per Device

Because this KPI is applicable only when the count for the number of deployed licenses can be larger than the number of purchased licenses, data for Enterprise and Site license types are not displayed.

Custom license types are not included in the Purchased versus Deployed flashboard. The following procedure provides steps for adding them

To add custom license types to the Purchased versus Deployed KPI

  1. When you create the custom license type, use Compliance Question 1 to record the number purchased.
  2. When you create the custom license type, use Compliance Question 2 to record the number deployed.
  3. Use BMC Remedy Developer Studio to update the AST:CLR:LicenseType_PurchasedvsDeployed menu on the Software Asset Management console with the custom license type by setting the LicenseTypeGUID_Base field to the custom license type.

Note

For information about configuring license types, see Configuring license types.
