Data Platform Integration

FlexNet Manager Suite (Cloud)

This part introduces the integration between FlexNet Manager Suite and Data Platform, an umbrella product that includes both Technopedia and Normalize.

The method of integration is a straight-forward connector, available without special installation on your inventory beacons. On the Data Platform side, an enhanced license term and a new data pack are required (see Configuring the Data Platform Connector for details).

Such simplicity means that the main use for the documentation in this part is to understand the mapping between
  • Database tables and columns that underlie Normalize, and
  • The destination tables and columns in the compliance database for FlexNet Manager Suite.

Also important is the embedded commentary on the current limitations of Data Platform as a sole data source driving license compliance calculations. When you have multiple inventory sources, imports from Data Platform can be a valuable addition to your data gathering.

Supported version

The Data Platform v5 connector supports import only from version 5 of Normalize.
