This service allows the HST to provide a license pool and share concurrent connections with multiple departments. It allows each department to save money by only purchasing the number of concurrent connections used on a daily basis with some flexibility. This method will reduce the over all number of licenses that HST and each individual department needs to purchase.
This service allows for departments to keep their databases and clients updated and satisfy the security and compliance requirements.
