Formerly called Alladin HASP SRM, it allows enterprises to handle software activation and licensing across the organization thanks to its entitlement management system. It also allows its users to acquire insights into product usage and create reports on the performance of the software, which are important to ensuring license compliance.

  4. Software MonetizationSentinel HASP can help companies generate new revenue streams when they shift to a software-based business.

Users of the software can also enable or disable certain features of an application depending on their usage and budget. This means that users are only charged for the number of features and sessions that they used the software.

How to Effectively Meter Sentinel HASP

The most effective way to meter Sentinel HASP is by collecting usage data from different sources, including polling; log files; OS kernel; and CPU, I/O, mouse and keyboard activities. This allows the software usage metering tool to have more data points to compare and aggregate for a more accurate usage reporting. Not only could this provide an enterprise overview of the software usage of the entire organization, but it can also show who are using these assets, when they are used, and for how long. It can also group users based on projects or business units and take into consideration various geographic locations in different time zones.

By metering your application’s activity levels, your organization can acquire essential information on your license usage and generate in-depth reports. These include distinct number of users, time and day of use, concurrent number of users, the duration of the use of license, and the number of available licenses. The data collected can be used for creating in-depth reports.
