Many companies have invested large sums of money in mining software systems such as Minesight, Gemcom, Datamine, and Vulcan. On top of that, they spend considerable money training their employees how to use the software. Because of the costs involved, these companies tend to purchase only a limited number of user licenses. Since these expensive systems all seem to use hardware dongles for protection, the typical workday ends up being a constant game of “musical dongles”. More employees need to use the software than there are dongles available.
