IBM Platform License Scheduler

IBM Platform License Scheduler enables license sharing between global project teams. It ensures that license availability is prioritized by workload, user and project, and that licenses are optimally used.




The challenge

Client challenges

High performance computing users are challenged to find complete, flexible license management solutions. Some available solutions simply throttle jobs based on license availability, when what the organization really needs is a solution that can allocate a virtualized pool of licenses based on an organization’s own distribution policies to optimize license sharing and use.




The solution

Flexible license management

By allocating a virtualized pool of licenses based on an organization’s own distribution policies, IBM® Platform™ License Scheduler enables license sharing between global project teams. It ensures that license availability is prioritized by workload, user and project, and that licenses are optimally used. Unlike other license management solutions, Platform License Scheduler manages license allocation based on flexible policies. And the intuitive web-based console enables license usage to be monitored in real time. Whether the application software environment is simple or complex, Platform License Scheduler helps organizations optimize their use of enterprise software licenses, improving productivity and containing cost.




The benefits

Optimize license sharing and use

When used in conjunction with IBM Platform Analytics, Platform License Scheduler can help provide a complete understanding of license usage. Users will benefit from:
