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
Snow Spend Optimizer provides insight into unused technology spend. See detailed datacenter expenditure with support for per processor and per core license models on both virtual and physical resources. For cloud optimization, you can quickly identify unused and underutilized accounts and unnecessary, expensive subscriptions such as Microsoft 365 E3 versus E1.
Manage SaaS spend
Reduce SaaS contracts by buying and renewing only the subscriptions your organization truly needs. Using Snow Spend Optimizer, IT asset managers can identify savings from unused accounts and duplicate users. With detailed user-level analytics, they can eliminate unnecessary premium subscriptions. Plus, by viewing data-driven agreements for each application, they can proactively manage SaaS renewals.
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.
