TEN and VWR  are license key metrics, i do not know the USC term.

TEN = "tenant"

VWR = Viewer, named user"


License grants per “Tenant” (TEN)

A tenant is a client organization sharing utilization of a single software instance on a server with other tenants, having

dedicated separated tenant data and utilizing the provided standard or very limited customized virtual application


A multi-tenant system is a software architecture where a single instance of the software runs on a server, serving

multiple client organizations and/or multiple departmental organizations within one client (tenants). With a multi-tenant

architecture, a software application is designed to virtually partition its data and configuration, and each client

organization works with a standard or very limited customized virtual application instance.

A single-tenant systems is a software architecture where the tenant is provided with a single and dedicated instance of

the software, with full configurability of software, own database, enhanced security and an individual or segregated

Viewer (VWR)

A Viewer is defined as a named user who has only the ability to view database or application content.

Viewers in the context of PlanningIT access planningIT for the sole purpose of viewing information relating to the

enterprise architecture management activities the enterprise is engaging in. Information may be accessed through any

of the functions available in planningIT’s base package. This includes the use of dashboards, bookmarks or express

views. A viewer profile can be defined for the Viewer User for specific tasks such as tracking the status of a project,

application or project portfolio assessment, as well as application landscape or master plan evaluation. Viewers can

attach notes to objects and notify the owners of objects as needed.
