Recommended Methodology for Managing Software Licenses Using LAMUM
TeamEDA recommends tracking all standalone licenses that cost > $2000 each. In the world of License pricing, node-locked is the cheapest. LAN is typically 3-4x node-locked. WAN is typically 10-12x node-locked. So, the optimal combination of WAN, LAN and node-locked is important in minimizing overall cost, while providing acceptable tool access. 100% guaranteed Tool access at any time is unrealistic and would be very expensive. Some level of wait or license denial may be perfectly acceptable. Most companies strive for 80-90% tool access probability.
