About OC SPLA Manager

SPLA Usage reporting is complex because it requires the Hosting Service Provider (HSP) to have very effective processes and procedures for software licensing management, great control over the hardware inventory and an updated and clear idea of what the End Customers are using. All this potentially changing on a month to month basis. This is clearly not easy even when you have a small number of clients, but imagine an HSP with hundreds or even thousands of Customers . There is no way such large HSPs can do the work without automated tools. And for the smaller HSPs, it is better to get started now, so that as you grow, you have it under control.
