Great if you have the time and resources to set up the system correctly from the start. Bad if you're trying to rush the implementation and have very few users dedicated to the project.

OpenLM for Engineering Licensing

OpenLM can simplify the reporting of complex licenses with multiple toolboxes or products on one server. It covers most of our license server types, but not all. The academic version is reasonably priced (e.g. for educational institutions) giving 90% of the features, however setting it up on-premise was more complex than our original pilot would suggest. We couldn't do without it now.

OpenLM for Engineering Licensing

  • Peak concurrent license use for any period of time, often less than expected, saves unnecessary over purchase.
  • Denials of license, can quickly see where a license is not working, say, after an upgrade.
  • Comparison of license utilisation (% when near the limit).
  • Quick check of expiring licenses.

Cons

Cherwell Asset Management

  • Reporting module
  • Knowledge base searching

OpenLM for Engineering Licensing

  • You can share a link to a dynamic report (e.g. the last 365 days). The URL is very long but it can be used with a 3rd party short URL utility and shared with users.
  • Upgrading to the latest version took a long time to troubleshoot, which left a short gap in the saved data.

X-Formation, OpenIT, JTB, Sassafras either more expensive for the particular task of managing and monitoring concurrent licenses, or they had a different set of features (such as Sassafras K2/Keyserver also for remote access)

  • Consolidated other systems into a single platform

OpenLM for Engineering Licensing

  • The academic version has paid for itself handsomely, including our setup costs. The ongoing strategic information saves costs.
