An LPAR is a simulated division of computer resources, such as processor(s) and memory, of a real computer to create what appear to be separate computers for programs executing in each LPAR.Exemplary embodiments now will be described more fully herein with reference to the accompanying drawings.This disclosure may, however, be embodied in many different forms and should not be construed as limited to the exemplary embodiments set forth herein.After you have consolidated all the companies, you must make elimination entries to remove transactions that are recorded across more than one company or remove entries involving intercompany transactions. Calculating the eliminations is a time-consuming manual process that may be aided by setting up specific intercompany accounts, intercompany customers/vendors, and intercompany posting groups.

Embodiments include a computer system, method and program product for managing a software program installed on a computer hardware system, the software program subject to a software license.Whether to decommission or consolidate the software program is determined and reported based on the data indicating actual usage, the licensing data, a projected amount of future usage of the software program, and a criticality of the software program if the software program is listed as critical.
