REST API for resource utilization

It would be great to retrieve the data which ILMT collects under https://<ilmtserver>:9081/sam/expanded_usage_fact_reports via REST API in a same way like the license usage data.

A wide range of IBM software products is licensed with other metrics than PVU or VPC and uses the slmtag feature to report their usage consumption to ILMT. Exposing this data via REST API to other tools which can be used fpr software asset management like Maximo for IT would be a great gain.

    Not planned.

    Clients can obtain resource utilization by downloading csv data in UI.
