Spider now provides an easy way to operate SAM with a focus on certain manufacturers. Not every manufacturer is relevant for every customer within their SAM. Spider introduces four priority indicators (A to D) that can be set as SAM priority for each manufacturer. An application-wide global filter only allows filtering according to the selected SAM priorities. As a result, Spider only displays data from these manufacturers, e.g. the applications, installations, compliance, etc. This allows you to focus on specific SAM priorities and hide the rest of the data from other vendors. This is a proven concept, which is already known under various names. One dimension of this concept could be the level of SAM maturity for a particular manufacturer. Another dimension could be the risk associated with a particular provider.
The freeware classification from the product catalog is automatically adopted on the product. The field freeware therefore no longer needs to be set manually and is a protected field. There is no compliance calculation for freeware products.
