Not all usage data is helpful. Sometimes software products come with in-built metering, but these in-built offerings typically only provide an indication of how many times an application has been opened over a certain period, or the last time it was launched.
This video gives an overview of how ‘active usage metering’ exposes cost savings that would have previously remained hidden. Bad practice by users, applications that automatically launch when booting the device, over provision of entitlements etc. all incur unnecessary expense that can be quickly cut, once the active usage data is available.
