Configuration and administration
Ivanti Neurons for Spend Intelligence is a separately licensed component that enables you to track and understand your on-premise and SaaS software liabilities and spend. This section describes how to configure some settings that affect the way it works, its integration with other products, and how to import data. For more information about using the component itself, see Spend Intelligence.
To access the configuration pages for Spend Intelligence, start one of the Spend Intelligence components under Software in the sidebar, then use the links under Configuration on the Spend Intelligence navigation bar.
For information about importing license transactions, contracts, or price data, see Import sources.
Integration with Ivanti Neurons for ITSM
The Spend Intelligence dashboards help you to identify software that is not being used, so that you can consider uninstalling it and reclaiming the associated licenses (see Software usage and identifying opportunities to reclaim licenses). At Configuration > Ivanti Neurons for ITSM in the Spend Intelligence navigation bar, you can enable this integration and customize the ticket that is logged. For more information, see Connecting Software Insights to Ivanti Neurons for ITSM.
Configuring SaaS Management
At Configuration > SaaS Management in the Spend Intelligence navigation bar, you specify which email domains are considered corporate domains, so that the SaaS Management component can identify external users of your SaaS applications. For more information, see Specifying corporate email domains.
Setting the system currency
A single currency is used to display all monetary values and for all financial calculations in License Manager. At Configuration > License Manager in the Spend Intelligence navigation bar, you specify this currency. For more information, see Specifying your currency.
Integration with Ivanti Neurons for ITAM
You can link Ivanti Neurons for Spend Intelligence with Ivanti Neurons for ITAM so that data relating to contracts and license transactions is automatically passed between the two systems. For more information, see Integration with Ivanti Neurons for ITAM.
The charts in Software Insights show the results of several large calculations involving a large amount of data, which can then affect the start-up performance of Software Insights. To prevent this, if you have more than 9000 devices, the summary calculations are run daily and stored. A consequence of this is that the values in the charts may be up to a day out-of-date compared with the data in the associated data grids. At Configuration > Software Insights in the Spend Intelligence navigation bar, you can change this behavior using a toggle switch. The options are:
- Real-Time – disables the pre-calculations, resulting in slower performance
- Pre-Calculate – gives faster performance, but the charts may be up to a day out-of-date
Changing this setting requires several minutes to take effect, as the system may need to recalculate or refresh a large amount of data.
