OpenLM Cloud is software license administration solution that gives you monitoring, auditing and reporting of engineering software usage without worrying about server allocation, version updates, data backup, operating system compatibility or any of the other issues that can cause headaches with on-premise installations.
You need to install just one simple component, called the OpenLM broker to link up you license manager with OpenLM Cloud.
You can easily migrate from the OpenLM on-premise version to the cloud version and vice versa if you want to switch between hosted and non-hosted deployments.
