(EN) DETERMINATION AND RECONCILIATION OF SOFTWARE USED BY A MANAGED NETWORK
(FR) DÉTERMINATION ET RAPPROCHEMENT DE LOGICIELS UTILISÉS PAR UN RÉSEAU GÉRÉ
Abstract
(EN)
A database may contain representations of: (i) software packages managed by a software management tool, including publishers, titles, and categories associated with each, and (ii) a plurality of software activities, including descriptions and amounts associated with each. A server device 202 may be configured to obtain classifications of the software activities that predict the publishers, titles, and categories of the software activities from the descriptions. The server device 202 may further compare the software packages to the classifications in order to identify: (i) unmanaged software packages, and (ii) amounts associated with the software packages. The server device 202 may also transmit a representation of a graphical user interface 1200 that depicts first and second panes 1210, 1212, the first pane 1210 listing the publishers with respective total publisher amounts and whether any of the unmanaged software packages are attributable to each of the publishers, and the second pane 1212 including a chart depicting the amounts incurred over time.

Selon l'invention, une base de données peut contenir des représentations : (i) de progiciels gérés par un outil de gestion de logiciels, comprenant des éditeurs, des titres et des catégories associés à chacun d'eux, et (ii) d'une pluralité d'activités logicielles, comprenant des descriptions et des montants associés à chacune d'elles. Un dispositif serveur 202 peut être configuré pour obtenir des classifications des activités logicielles qui prédisent les éditeurs, les titres et les catégories des activités logicielles à partir des descriptions. Le dispositif serveur 202 peut en outre comparer les progiciels aux classifications afin d'identifier : (i) des progiciels non gérés, et (ii) des montants associés aux progiciels. Le dispositif serveur 202 peut également transmettre une représentation d'une interface utilisateur graphique 1200 qui décrit des première et seconde sous-fenêtres 1210, 1212, la première sous-fenêtre 1210 listant les éditeurs avec des montants d'éditeur totaux respectifs et indiquant si n'importe lequel des progiciels non gérés est attribuable à chacun des éditeurs, et la seconde sous-fenêtre 1212 comprenant un graphique décrivant les montants encourus au cours du temps.
