Snow Honors the 2021 Technology Intelligence Award Winners

Snow Honors the 2021 Technology Intelligence Award Winners

By Kathleen Shepherd | June 24, 2021

This year, we launched the inaugural Snow Technology Intelligence Awards to celebrate organizations around the world pushing the boundaries of what’s possible in software, SaaS, SAP and cloud management.

Following a year with so much uncertainty and unprecedented change, we’re proud to recognize our customers’ successful and innovative programs transforming their organizations through technology intelligence.

What is technology intelligence?

It starts with a fundamental understanding of how and why employees use specific technologies, along with a clear understanding of the resources an organization has across its ecosystem. With accurate and actionable data to make informed decisions, IT teams can use these insights to make strategic business decisions, propel innovation initiatives, build resilience, empower the workforce and more. At Snow, we believe that empowering IT and business leaders with this perspective enables them to understand both the granular impacts of technology and the high-level view of how it all fits together.

Our 2021 submissions

Among our submissions, customers shared interesting anecdotes and tangible impacts around how their SAM/ITAM, SaaS and cloud management programs were achieving success using Snow. They shared eye-opening results which included seven-figure savings, risk reduction, significant cost avoidance during software audits, and huge time savings. One customer even shared that they were able to decrease their audit preparation time from eight weeks to one hour!

Many of our submissions also showed customers that see significant benefits from automation and improving their employee’s ability to manage self-service requests.

We received so many incredible applications from organizations of all sizes and industries, and the honorees selected truly represent the best of the best. In fact, we had so many strong submissions that we added two additional categories to what we originally had intended – Innovation of the Year and Transformation of the Year.
