Software Asset Management publisher pack for IBM

Use the IBM License Metric Tool (ILMT) and BigFix Inventory integration to create a connection between your IBM servers and the Now Platform. Create entitlements and software models and determine your license compliance by tracking your IBM products and components.

Integrate one or more IBM servers with Software Asset Management using HTTP or HTTPS.
Note: Install the add-onIBM content pack (com.sn_samp_ibm) plugin to view the IBM dashboard tab.

Upon plugin activation, an IBM Server connection alias is provided to set up IBM server connections. After the connection is successful, historical data is retrieved for the aggregated period set up in ILMT and BigFix Inventory. This data includes products, components, editions, hosts, virtual machines, and license usage.

Note: License usage is based on the product use and not component use.

You can automate reconciliation of IBM products, including complex server licensing scenarios, using IBM publisher pack. Integration with IBM BigFix Inventory discovery application measures subcapacity and full-capacity license compliance for PVU and RVU license metrics.
