New Software Subcategories in Technopedia
Customers should be prepared and act
Flexera is introducing new software subcategories under the category “Tools and Utilities/Utilities”.
These changes are intended to maintain the appropriate categories for the products which were classified under “Other Utilities”.
We will be revisiting/updating the existing products under “Other Utilities” subcategory and making the changes based on the identified subcategories that can be from the new list or from the existing category.
The scope of these changes at this time is limited to ~9k products under “Other utilities”. The remaining ones will be taken up in the next set.
This change will impact customers who rely on Technopedia product categorization to manage downstream processes and reporting in their organization. In addition to introducing the new subcategories, products will be realigned from their existing category/subcategory into one of these new categories/subcategories.
Details of these products are provided in the attachment – “Proposed new category list along with products list.xlsx”
Customers should expect these changes to occur starting from December 26th to 30th, 2022 January 25th to 31st, 2023.
