Freeing up licenses

A corporation pays for expensive PLM (product lifecycle management) software licenses for hundreds of users. However, only a handful of users change any product data in the system; the rest use it as a read-only reference.

The company decides to keep only a few licenses and migrate the data nightly into a database which gives read-only access. The new, thin app could also provide a more easy to use, intuitive GUI for the less demanding user.
