The Kivuto reports can contain both the paid for software, such as Microsoft WAH copies of Office,  and the downloads which are free. There are a number of reporting options. For instance it is possible to break down the totals by product or whether it is DreamSpark or WAH etc.

Kivuto have an online reporting tool  (looks like MSSQL reporting)   that you can report on total downloads.   We then do a yearly calculation of the value of each thing downloaded and produce a total value report based on that.

>
>We have setup shib login to the Kivuto portal that grants access to 
>this offer and set an attribute that tell them if the user qualifies 
>for the enhanced STEM offering or the basic offering.  This has worked 
>well and greatly reduced the barrier to entry and admin overhead.  This used to involve uploading
>spreadsheets of qualifying students and then getting them to register.    The
>user experience is now seamless, users  login to the site and access 
>what they are eligible for.  A low barrier to entry and a campaign of 
>awareness raising has boosted uptake.

>We have been running this for 2 years now and it is working well.  This 
>year the  value of software downloaded by university members from the 
>Microsoft Dreamspark service was 1.71 million.  The service was used by  1,078
>members who downloaded  2,681 software applications for free.    The total
>value of software downloaded for free over the lifetime of the offer is  
>3.4 million
