I would like to see a breakdown of current licensing. This would help administrators understand how licences are being purchased, allocated and utilised. The goal is to optimise tenant expenditure and show ROI.

Same question as Graham. We want to run the report with the anonymity flag off but that means we are limited in who we can share it with since that is all or nothing.
Graham - what do you want to be anonymous about the report? Are you wanting to share anonymously, or that you don't want to include information that is identifiable?
