IBM ILMT – Tool Training

Get to know the basics for the IBM License Metric Tool (ILMT).

The licensing model and contractual requirements of the software manufacturer IBM keep companies in motion. In addition to changing licensing models, the installation of the IBM License Metric Tool (ILMT) is mandatory for organizations that want to license the virtual capacity (sub capacity) of their infrastructure.
Due to an increased workspace virtualization, companies must engage in this subject and must make decisions as to whether ILMT should be used or their infrastructure should be adapted in order to avoid the implementation of ILMT.
