Modern IT infrastructure calls for reinventing your ITAM practice.

Challenge

Increasing cloud and SaaS spend are complicating cost management and compliance. 

  • Redundant applications drive up cost and complexity
  • 30% wasted spend on unused or oversized cloud/ SaaS
  • Time consuming preparations for vendor negotiations

Solution

Rightsize technology investments by aligning spend with business needs.

  • Identify savings from unused accounts and duplicate users 
  • Eliminate unnecessary premium subscriptions
  • Eliminate redundant apps with usage details by application category
  • Sort apps that should be integrated, adopted or retired

How It Works

Snow hybrid discovery consolidates spend data from multiple sources, normalizes more than 700,000 applications and aggregates usage of hardware, software, SaaS or IaaS across your IT estate. You can upload and track entitlement agreements and then, based on usage, determine the effective license position as well as appropriately chargeback departments. With guided insight to reduce excessive subscription levels, you can control big-ticket datacenter and enterprise software costs for products such as SAP, Oracle, IBM, Microsoft and Adobe Creative Cloud.

Simplify your complex environment

Technology portfolio rationalization

Snow automatically categorizes more than 700,000 applications and allows you to rationalize your portfolio by rolling up overlapping technologies. This rationalization reduces support costs, OS migration costs and risk. Additionally, with expert-level assessments for key products such as Windows Server, IT asset managers can find the most cost-effective way to license in virtualized environments and act on license risks related to virtualization.
