Altair SAO: Rightsizing Software License Inventory – Part 2

What-If Simulator Results – Performance Improvement

The previous post discussed the “Why and How” to Rightsize software license inventory at any company.  This post will discuss the results obtained using a Software License What-If Simulator that analyzes transaction history for a modeling software (check-in/check-out/denials).  We will focus on evaluating performance metrics when the license counts are varied using different Timeout and Max Sessions constraints.
