Trend data for the SAM Optimization Hub

Note:This feature is available with IT Asset Management.

With this update, the SAM Optimization Hub now renders historical trend data in the form of two line charts:

Estimated Savings vs. Classical Approach (Trend)—Displays, over time and by product, the difference between the “safe but expensive” and the “optimal license” consumption computed by the reports.
Save By Taking Action: Top 5 (Trend)—Displays the results of your optimization efforts based on how you have optimized your infrastructure to minimize costs and license consumption. Overtime, the potential for optimization should decrease, based on your optimization efforts.

The data displayed is from existing optimization reports, separated by vendor and license.
