User Value Unit (UVU) is a unit of measure by which the Program can be licensed. UVU Proof of Entitlement (PoE) are based on the number and type of Users for the given Program. Licensee must obtain sufficient entitlements for the number of UVUs required for Licensee's environment as defined by the specific software terms. The UVU entitlements are specific to the Program and type of user and may not be exchanged, interchanged, or aggregated with UVU entitlements of another program or type of user."
What it doesn't tell you is what they mean by "type of Users." These are defined in the licence information document for the specific product you are licensing and the conversion ratio for users into UVUs depends on the type and volume of users.
Taking Security Access Manager for Enterprise Single Sign-On as an example. The document (link below) defines 3 different types of user - internal, external and infrequent. The first has a ratio of 1:1, i.e. each internal user is equivalent to 1 User for the purpose of calculating UVUs. The latter two both have a ratio of 15:1, i.e. 15 external and / or infrequent users are equivalent to 1 User for the purpose of the calculation.
Once you have the total number of Users, you then convert to UVUs using the cumulative methodology below:
For 1 to 5,000 Users, 1.00 UVU per User
For 5,001 to 15,000 Users, 5,000 UVUs plus 0.50 UVUs per User above 5,000
For 15,001 to 50,000 Users, 10,000 UVUs plus 0.30 UVUs per User above 15,000
For 50,001 to 150,000 Users, 20,500 UVUs plus 0.20 UVUs per User above 50,000
For 150,001 to 500,000 Users, 40,500 UVUs plus 0.10 UVUs per User above 150,000
For 500,001 to 1,000,000 Users, 75,500 UVUs plus 0.05 UVUs per User above 500,000
For 1,000,001 to 3,000,000 Users, 100,500 UVUs plus 0.025 UVUs per User above 1,000,000
For greater than 3,000,000 Users, 150,500 UVUs plus 0.01 UVUs per User above 3,000,000
I can't emphasise enough that User definitions and UVU calculations will be product specific, so you really need to have the licence information document for the exact version of the product you want to calculate them correctly.
If you want any help with this, give me a shout.
