I was working on enhancements to the NitroLM admin tool for visualizing users in the system and what computers they’ve used. When it comes to licensing software, knowledge is power, and the visual links really demonstrate well when someone isn’t doing what they’re supposed to be doing. We called this guy in the UK about how his demo of our software was going. He thought it was great and really useful software, but he didn’t want to have his boss actually “PURCHASE” it for him. His solution was to keep re-registering for demos under new gmail accounts. His machine is going to be blacklisted in the system in short order.
To do the visualization, I used the open-source library flexvizgraph. You may remember it from the BirdEye application. This new feature in NitroLM really highlights the power of the Flex/AIR visual environment.
