UCMDB Tip: What is UsagePercent and how is it calculated?

Recently we received a question regarding what exactly is UsagePercent in the SoftwareUtilization Report.

 

Please note that it is the percent of days used calculated against the relevant period: if overall the software utilisation has been collected for less than a month, it is (number of days used / 31) * 100, otherwise if software utilisation has been collected for more than a month but less than a quarter, the (number of days used / 90)* 100, otherwise if software utilisation has been collected for more than a quarter (90 days), annual figures are used – (number of days used / 365) *100 %.
