Snow for SaaS

Insight and automation to optimize SaaS investment across the enterprise

The Cloud Challenge

IT and business leaders encounter difficulty in managing their software spend, due to a lack of visibility into what is being used in the cloud. This is made especially difficult when the Disruption Gap between IT and the business units is increasingly driven by unknown and unmanaged purchase of SaaS subscriptions by business units and individual employees.

COMPLETE SAAS VISIBILITY

Snow’s discovery, inventory and consumption tracking provides detailed insight into SaaS application usage, regardless of who procured the subscription. It combines SaaS usage data with full visibility of on-premises technologies to provide a single view of hybrid IT infrastructures.

CLOUD SPEND OPTIMIZATION

Snow for SaaS helps tackle the estimated 30% of SaaS spending wasted on unused accounts, duplicate users, and unnecessary, premium subscriptions. With usage details by application category and lifecycle stage, organizations enable application rationalization, getting control of fast-increasing SaaS expense.

EFFECTIVE SAAS GOVERNANCE

Snow’s governance controls maintain SaaS visibility and cost control with self-service access request, automated approval and provisioning, license harvesting and reassignment, and subscription-level management.

IT AND BUSINESS ALIGNMENT

Armed with a holistic view of the organization’s technology investments, IT and financial leaders achieve a level of influence previously beyond their reach. Management dashboards facilitate accurate budgeting, forecasting and cost allocation - protecting the enterprise against overspend and compliance risks while embracing the opportunities offered by initiatives such as Digital Transformation Cloud-first, and Business Unit IT.
