With the release of Spider 6.4.7, the area of Subscriptions (Cloud) has been enhanced by key figures for the consumed quantity. The consumed quantity is historized in the database since the previous Spider release. The Spider Web user interface has been expanded in the search page for subscriptions as well as on the edit form of a subscription.
The search page has been enhanced to allow multiple search filters and grouping of columns. The column Trend has been added to the search result. The trend can be filtered as well, and will be shown as going up (going down) when the consumed quantity has increased (decreased) about more or equal to 3% of the current consumed quantity in the last 60 days.
The added value of the icon quickly becomes clear: Identifying changes in subscription consumption allows quick reactions to development to prevent unnecessary license cost.
Subscription detail form
The integration of the trend is rounded off by the expansion of the subscription detail form: The calculated trend of the last 60 day is shown in the tile on the left as well as on the top of the new line diagram.
The line diagram shows the consumed quantity of the subscription over the last 180 days. With that, you can easily get an impression on the progress of consumption. The allocation of subscribers over legal entities is shown in the table at the bottom of the line diagram, so that an indicator for the correct allocation across the company can be read off.
As legal entities can be assigned to employees now as well, the consumed quantity will be stored in the history per legal entity starting with the current release.
