SAO enables you to visualize and analyze global software inventories and utilization rates across facilities, divisions, departments, and users. With SAO, it’s easy to pinpoint underutilized assets for better business planning and forecasting. Because we have deep domain expertise in not only HPC but also business analytics and software licensing systems, Altair is uniquely qualified to offer powerful SAO solutions tailored to the unique requirements of each organization.
Reporting & Analytics
The SAO web portal provides 70+ alerts, usage and analytics reports with extensive drill-down capabilities. You get a bird’s-eye view of license usage including a summary report plus yearly, monthly, weekly, daily, hourly, and 5-minute reporting. You also get a hierarchical roll-up and breakdown of vendor usage and feature usage by departments and regions — and you can allocate your costs based on budgets, peaks, distinct users, token hours, and percentile peaks.
SAO supports license managers including Altair LMX, FlexNet Publisher, BetaCAE, DSLS, Animator V4/GNSLS, ClearCase, IBM LUM, LSTC (LS-DYNA), RLM, Sentinel RMS, Hasp, Altium, Gemalto, Automation Studio, CodeMeter, Mathematica, SlimD, ArborText, Zoo, BetaCAD, LICMAN, Intergraph SmartPlant, OrcaFlex, and OLicense.
Altair SAO Predict
Our SAO Predict add-on module is a “what-if” simulator, an entirely new approach to exploring configuration alternatives using a virtual license manager. Predict enables you to study the effect of controllable parameters on software licensing system performance. It’s designed to tune your current configuration and guide future capacity planning.Download the Datasheet
