I am working on decommissioning some redundant
Reports in CA-DISPATCH in tune of 10-15 reports.
Will this give any cost savings from CA-DISPATCH
Cost perspective. Is CA-Dispatch cost based
On number of users or number of reports or both?
Thanks - Nilesh

This type of information can ONLY be gotten from your site since independent software vendor (ISV) contracts, like IBM contracts, tend to be customized to the individual customer.

That being said, CA like most ISV in the market, typically charges fixed fees based upon the machine size, followed by annual maintenance charges that are a percentage of the original fee. It would be rare for CA, or any software vendor, to charge usage fees. So the most likely answer is that you could reduce the number of CA-DISPATCH reports browsed to zero and the annual cost to your organization would not change (unless your company completely dropped CA-DISPATCH). There may be savings due to less CPU and disk space used, but those would not be large for 10 to 15 reports (unless they are atypical). But, again, check with your site support group's contracts group to find out for sure.

There is also products like BMC Control-M who charge based on the usage.
i.e. the number of jobs that were in the Active Job Facility.

It is then site specific and how the site negotiates with the software vendor for the contract licensing.

Asking the Systems programmers has higher chance of finding the answer.
