DATA INTELLIGENCE SERVICE

Turn raw data into actionable intelligence

Snow Software Data Intelligence Service (DIS) experts translate raw data across your IT estate into a normalized view you can understand, communicate and reconcile. We augment this information with the metadata you need to monitor risk, maintain an effective license position and migrate to the most productive technologies. Daily updates and audits ensure your data is always current and trustworthy. 

Snow DIS Product

DIS powers the Snow technology intelligence platform.

Challenge

Limited information makes it difficult to understand the bigger picture. 

  • No clean and trusted source of truth for asset information and meta-data 
  • Different standards and lists of assets across the organization
  • Extensive manual effort to augment information in order to make it actionable
  • Asset data quickly becomes outdated

Solution

Leverage clean and actionable data to transform your organization.

  • Work more efficiently and collaboratively on one universally trusted set of asset information
  • Leverage fit-to-purpose, augmented data for license management, risk and productivity
  • Act immediately with a full view of your estate and the important meta-data linked to your technology

How It Works

DIS works with our patented normalization engine to quickly and accurately identify and classify applications and technologies. This verified information, along with correct and validated outputs, fuels the Snow technology suite so our products can overlay logic to calculate risk, compliance and costs. Confidently share and act on insights around business risk, cost savings and productivity to drive change that matters.

Become a partner in productivity and transformation

To operate effectively, IT organizations need to communicate and act cohesively over technology adoption and use. Snow DIS offers a single source of truth across all technologies allowing stakeholders to work better together. By augmenting software titles, the DIS helps business units measure specific technology types against business outcomes, strategically consolidate technologies and work cross-functionally to consume the best technology solutions for them.

Risk mitigation through actionable data

More and more technology budgets sit outside of IT. This makes it easy for business units to circumvent internal compliance policies. So, how can you manage risk with incomplete data and so much unseen activity? Snow accurately normalizes software data and SaaS applications to give you better visibility of your environment. With augmented metadata such as types of personal data an application can hold, or vulnerability information, you can take immediate action toward mitigating risk.

Risk mitigation through actionable data

Implementing a successful SAM program

DIS can help you avoid painful, manual effort and stale data by constantly updating its normalized applications for agile response and tailoring the asset information to the SAM user. It provides critical information about software manufacturers, how applications relate and application lifecycle data. Snow DIS also derives purchasing information such as SKU data, vendors and bundles.
