How It Works
Snow Optimizer for SAP® Software, an SAP-certified application written in ABAP, provides complete SAP license management through a single integrated console. Once it’s installed in a single system within the SAP environment, the agentless application collects and aggregates data from all connected SAP systems and highlights key compliance concerns. As an SAP add-on, no data is taken outside the safe SAP environment. Its comprehensive data collection of user profiles, usage activity and memory usage, as well as user access to standard and industry-specific modules, engines and self-declaration products, will ensure that your licenses are fully optimized and remain so with repeatable, automated processes.
Transition to S/4HANA
Gain visibility of the licenses you need in your new S/4HANA world to reduce costly overspending on unnecessary S/4HANA licenses. Take the opportunity to maximize the ROI from your existing SAP investment by identifying the value of shelfware and discussing it with SAP as part of your S/4HANA migration project.
Mitigate indirect/digital access liability
Gain insights into your indirect access liability under the different measurement methods to understand your potential indirect access liability. Compare the costs involved under the legacy user license model to the cost of licensing based on digital documents to decide which license model is best for your organization.
Simplify SAP license management
Analyze license allocations and usage to expose unused licenses, inactive or duplicate users and unnecessary assignment of expensive license types. Quickly find opportunities to optimize spend with custom, right-sizing recommendations. Set pre-defined rules to continually manage and adjust licenses automatically, drive accountability against budgets, streamline license management and ensure the maximum return on your SAP investment.
