There are very few vendors who have established substantial formal programs to approve tools for use tracking license compliance. But a couple of significant vendors who formally accept use of FlexNet Manager Suite for specific purposes are:

  • IBM commonly allows use of FlexNet Manager Suite as an alternative to ILMT for sub-capacity reporting (see Applying for IBM Approval for some information about this).
  • Oracle has verified FlexNet Manager Suite to provide data sets for Oracle Database, Database Options & Oracle Fusion Middleware that Oracle will accept whenever accurate measurement data is needed (see Tooling Options for Every Scenario).

When you do contract renewals, add using FNMS as the system of record for licensing.

You will still have to prove completeness of data outside FNMS.
