Your business entities hierarchy


You can define business entities to track and report on your environment data at a more granular level.

In OnCommand Insight, the business entities hierarchy contains these levels:

  • Tenant is primarily used by service providers to associate resources with a customer, for example, NetApp.

  • Line of Business (LOB) is a line of business or product line within a company, for example, Data Storage.

  • Business Unit represents a traditional business unit such as Legal or Marketing.

  • Project is often used to identify a specific project within a business unit for which you want capacity chargeback. For example, "Patents" might be a project name for the Legal business unit and "Sales Events" might be a project name for the Marketing business unit. Note that level names may include spaces.

You are not required to use all of the levels in the design of your corporate hierarchy.
