Please note upgrade schedule is subject to change, you will be notified in the event that we need to modify the upgrade schedule date. If you have any questions about this release or upgrade, please ask through the community or contact Customer Support.

The release notes are available in the online product documentation.   

Following are the features included in the March update

New report optimizes licenses for Windows Server (Microsoft Windows Server in virtualized environment, license cost optimization will provide a summarized view of optimal licensing consumption and potential cost savings)

New Application Transparency report especially helps embedded applications  (A new Application Transparency report gives rich insights into the evidence collected as part of FlexNet inventory)

It is intended for those few occasions where a 'parent' or primary application is licensed to include another embedded 'child' piece of software that provides required functionality)
