We'd like to track end user usage of various applications – is this something that I can do with System Center? Can I tie that information back to an internal chargeback system?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

System Center would require some level of customized effort to do exactly what you are trying to achieve, (e.g., polling of the system log to identify when an application was started, or leveraging some other suitable method). In other words, it can be done but isn’t a core capability.

    You can also try using OpenIT License Analyzer software (www.openit.com). we're using it for making monthly license usage reports, were using the software reports for doing internal chargeback here in our office and for negotiating pay-per-use contracts with our technology vendors. Im not sure if OpenIT still has a free demo of their software, you can just visit their website to find out more info about this.
