This presentation was made at CAASE18, The Conference on Advancing Analysis & Simulation in Engineering. CAASE18 brought together the leading visionaries, developers, and practitioners of CAE-related technologies in an open forum, to share experiences, discuss relevant trends, discover common themes, and explore future issues.
Applications for engineering are evolving at an accelerated pace. They provide more and more capabilities, supporting digitization from concept to delivery.
For that they are capturing a larger share of investments within the company and, because of that, they are demanding better management systems to monitor and meter their actual usage.
These more capable applications will also have an impact on the IT infrastructure.
The engineering industry has advanced with the use of analysis and simulation software. Engineering companies can optimize the entire design, prototype, test and production of bringing a new product to market with these software applications.
Access to the latest and most innovative software tools is sometimes difficult due to the overwhelming costs of these packages. In today’s session, we will not focus on optimizing designs but more specifically, optimizing the software licenses to enable: reduced software costs, identifying unused software to free up budget to be spent on new apps and features, understanding cost allocation by actual usage by department or project and understanding usage for vendor negotiations.
The best way to achieve optimization of your expensive licenses is through usage metering tools. Software usage tools measure how much and how often applications are used and allow managers to quickly and easily analyze true needs. Some usage metering tools also go further by not only providing historical data but by simulating various types of agreements and scenarios to help managers make more informed decisions.
This presentation will provide real engineering customer data, report examples as well as case studies where usage metering saved significant money.
Business and IT Managers are applying usage data to optimize their resources and save their companies real dollars while creating a competitive edge. Whether you’re managing analysis or other simulation applications, usage metering allows you to provide the right software to the right person at the right time thereby optimizing your costs.
