Good morning. This should be an easy one hopefully. We are just going through the process of monetizing all our licences in SNOW. What is the best report or widget to show the running total of our financial risk?
Thanks in advance
Another option that might be helpful is the Underlicensed applications report. This is basically an "out of compliance" report that is pre-filtered to include commercially licensable titles installed in your environment that are either not sufficiently covered by an existing license or a license does not currently exist in SLM. I highly recommend SAM practitioners review this report on a regular basis to identify where you could be at risk.
I think you need to define risk. Is that your compliance risk? If you are adding a value against all installations, then your risk will be any additional licenses required (in its most simplistic form). What is not being taken into consideration is unused or infrequently used applications and if they are actually needed. If those can be harvested, the risk reduces and with it the costs.
It's more to get buy-in from the powers that be. It would be handy to show the financial risk of our under compliance as a report. I know you can see it in the individual application details but is there a way to see that in a report form.
I would use License compliance summary, that will show what you have pucharsed against what your comliance position is. I use this for a weekly report and see what the worst cases are & why. It does also concentrate mids when they see the overall position.
