Tip: Because Flexera Analytics utilizes IBM Cognos out-of-the-box functionality, refer to the IBM Cognos Analytics documentation for complete information on most how to topics such as how to build reports and dashboards, how to select data sources when creating reports and dashboards, and so on.

Widgets are the components that create a dashboard to help you derive data insights. They are visualizations of individual items of data extracted from a data source and derived from software, hardware, and procurement data within FlexNet Manager Suite.

The Home page of Flexera Analytics contains a Widget Library for the following categories of data:

  • Software Asset Management — Widgets to help you visualize and optimize the software asset lifecycle
  • Hardware Asset Management — Widgets to help you visualize and optimize the management of physical computers
  • Procurement — Widgets that provide information about obtaining hardware and software.

Within a widget, you can change the visualization to show various views of the data. For example, some widgets provide the ability to change to a bar chart or stacked bar chart, tree maps, heat maps, tables, and more. To change the visualization, select a widget within a dashboard and click the Change visualization icon.

Important: You must select a data source in the reporting template before building a custom report.
