Where could we see more about the unified spend analytics, like screenshots or video demo?

Is Unified Spend Analytics runninig on Flexera premisses, or also part of Cognos Analytis locally ?

Hi @CSpijkers 

I found some information and graphs screenshots at https://docs.flexera.com/flexera/EN/UnifiedSpendAnalytics/spenddata.htm

My guess would be that this is running at GoodData and by using OATH we as on-premise customers will have access to it as described. We have not yet patched our system with the update, so haven't had the chance to test it yet but are looking forward to it since this area will increase it's importance for 2020 due to the outbreak and everyone wants to cut costs.

HI The link with screenshots doesn't seem to work

 

Thanks for the note @ronaldschreur. The linkt ath @mag00_75 posted has been fixed.

Hi Chris,

Thanks for your help!

 

Regards

 

Ronald
