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.
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.
