Enhance the Workload Widget to show where new workloads are coming from to properly estimate and manage Turbo licenses.

There is a widget called Workload Improvement – and it has 3 types, On-Prem, Cloud and Hybrid.

I think it would be VERY useful if we add various parameters to this graph (focusing mostly on cloud)

1)Provider (aws, gcp, azure0 2) Subscription (Account) Name  3) Region 4) SKU (or family)  5) Resource Group

Why? Because the customer would like to see where the growth is coming from. Also IF POSS – increase the date range to a year.

Business Case Right Now: licenses exceeded and they don't know from where these new cloud instances have come.

    Thank you for taking the time to provide your ideas to IBM. We truly value our relationship with you and appreciate your willingness to share details about your experience, your recommendations, and ideas. IBM has evaluated the request and has determined that it cannot be implemented at this time or does not align with our current strategy or roadmap.

    If you would prefer that IBM re-evaluate this decision, please open a new idea at https://automation-management.ideas.ibm.com/ideas

    A very good first step would already be to have the ability to track the number of entities (of each entity type) over time with the reporting at least.
