Insight’s Enterprise License Dashboard is a cloud-based offering that provides a high-level management interface for your current licensing position. This multi-vendor entitlement and compliance reporting dashboard is a highly scalable, configurable assessment and reconciliation tool.

Step 1: Access the Enterprise License Dashboard

The Enterprise License Dashboard is only available after you’ve requested access from your account executive. Insight specialists will then work with you to activate the dashboard so you can begin managing your software license entitlements. 

Once your Enterprise License Dashboard is ready, you will first log in to your myInsight account. Then, select the Tools dropdown menu, near the top right of the menu where you originally selected the login option. Select Enterprise License Dashboard and once your credentials are verified, you’ll be taken to the Dashboard. 

Step 2: Reviewing the Dashboard

The Enterprise License Dashboard will automatically display your license details for products purchased from Insight. If you’ve adopted our managed services, your data will also include licenses that you haven’t purchased from Insight after they’ve been imported by our team.

In the Dashboard, you’ll be able to review your Enterprise Agreement Details and licensing positions through a variety of filters, including:

  • Top 5 Licensed Products
  • Top 5 Overlicensed Products (which is part of our managed services)
  • Top 5 Underlicensed Products (which is part of our managed services)
  • Top 5 Installed Products (which is part of our managed services)

Step 3: License Agreements, Entitlements, Inventory and more

If you’ve adopted all our Enterprise License Dashboard managed services, your menu will look like this:
