License Positions from FlexNet Manager and ILMT Report

IT Asset Management 2024 R1 (Cloud)

The License Positions from FlexNet Manager and ILMT report compares the PVU counts imported from ILMT with IT Asset Management's calculations of consumption. IBM software asset managers may use this report to compare the consumption numbers between ILMT and IT Asset Management while they are switching over from using ILMT to using IT Asset Management for their IBM licensing.
