Detect if costly licenses are unused. Act when co-workers cannot get their work done, because there are no free licenses for the software they need. Make an informed decision, if you will need more licenses in the future or if you can cancel software maintenance on a few licenses. And make sure, that software usage is according license agreements.
OpenLM shows you at a glance how your software license pool is used.
OpenLM – the license management software – has different benefits:
OpenLM Utilizer is the core of the OpenLM solution. OpenLM Utilizer monitores the connected license management systems and collects data about license utilization. This data is aggregated and provided to the users as information for monitoring purposes and for the reporting of license statistics.
OpenLM Utilizer is composed of:
OpenLM Server supports software products based on various license management systems like FlexNet, FLEXlm, IBM LUM, DSLS, Sentinel RMS, Sentinel HASP, RLM, BetaLM, MathLM and LM-X.
OpenLM Server collects Information about the utilization of the software products and stores this date in a relational database.
The OpenLM EasyAdmin User Interface supports all standard internet browsers and provides comprehensive Monitoring and Reporting capabilities für the connected license management systems. Beyond that OpenLM EasyAdmin is, depending on the security settings, the administration interface to OpenLM Server.
OpenLM Broker collects logging information and information about license utilization from the monitored license management system and submits this data to OpenLM Server.
OpenLM Agent: The ability for the end user to query the license availability is an important step to improve license utilization. OpenLM Agent can be installed on every workstation.
Who ever needs a license at aspecial point of time but is not able to get one can use this information to contact one of the actual users and ask for release of the license.
OpenLM API provides access for external systems to OpenLM functionality and information. Using this technology enables users of enterprise systems access to OpenLM information whithout the necessity of leaving their application.
OpenLM add-on modules are separately licensable enhancements for the OpenLM Utilizer.
OpenLM Alerts is designed to assure the stability and availability of your licensing system. The system allows the system manager to define conditions and what will happen when these conditions are met.
Groups Billing: This extension enables collecting license usage information from Groups of users or projects. This capability is predominantly used by companies that charge back usage time to cost centers. The Groups & Projects extension synchronizes users' data with its LDAP Data Base (Active Directory), keeping the data collection process fully automatic.

OpenLM Projects Billing: This extension enables collecting license usage information from Groups of users or projects. This capability is predominantly used by companies that charge back usage time to cost centers. The Groups & Projects extension synchronizes users' data with its LDAP Data Base (Active Directory), keeping the data collection process fully automatic.
OpenLM's Active Agent extension allows system administrators to define a timeout policy. In this manner, system administrators can save, close or suspend idle applications, in order to make more efficient use of licenses.
OpenLM Option File Management: The OpenLM Option File Management extension employs LDAP (Active Directory), to enable system administrators to manage Option Files easily from the EasyAdmin web based interface. This gives the system administrators easy control over the access of user groups and individuals to licenses.
OpenLM Role Based Security: The OpenLM Server supports a role-based security feature that enables the implementation of customized access to OpenLM tools by setting access roles. This feature facilitates the implementation of OpenLM tools for diverse groups; e.g.: help desk, system administrators, managers and developers. The role based security system secures nearly all parts of the system entities, such as listed servers, fields and action buttons.
OpenLM External DB Support: This extension facilitates saving license usage information on an external Data Base such as an Oracle or MS SQL Server. By default, OpenLM uses an embedded DB. External DB support is recommended for management of large licensing systems.
