At WPC, Worldwide Licensing and Pricing (WWLP) team will be demonstrating free "software usage tracker" feature of Microsoft Assessment and Planning Toolkit, which helps customers evaluate their software asset management needs. With this, customers can easily view software license reports on actual usage of five key Microsoft server products (Windows Server, Exchange Server, SharePoint Server, SQL Server and System Center Configuration Manager), in addition to other reporting & discovery included in previous versions.

This new usage based reporting will help address several issues: Software Usage Tracking capability of MAP tool provides VL customers with information they need to help verify CAL license positions; Helps partners meet one of the top VL customer pain points of tracking & managing licenses with SUT and accompanying licensing guidance information; Provides VL customers with help to balance their usage with Server and CAL license information. This in turn helps partners produce faster sales cycle times during agreement renewal negotiations.
