Proactively manage your IBM licenses
IBM is one of the most complicated enterprise software licensing scenarios to manage. With the right solution, you can avoid unnecessary spend and reduce the risk of expensive audit penalties. Snow gives you the insight you need to take control of your IBM environment.
Know where you stand on all deployed IBM products.
Identify all PVU-based products
Using Snow, you can find exactly where PVU-based software is installed and correctly deploy IBM's mandatory license management tool (ILMT). With your sub-capacity requirements met, you can rest assured knowing you're safe during an audit.
Effectively configure deployments
It’s easy to overspend if the team responsible for sourcing IBM products has little visibility of current capacity levels. With Snow Spend Optimizer, you can gain complete visibility of your landscape and take full advantage of sub-capacity licensing to deploy more virtual machines, at no extra cost.
Reduce spend on unused products
IBM’s product catalog is large, with products changing over time so it's difficult to understand what the terms are per-product or whether a product has been renamed. Using Snow Spend Auditor, you can easily reconcile historical purchases to active entitlements and usage information to see which applications you really need. Find ways for your organization to reduce spend and manage your entitlements more efficiently by cutting back on maintenance or reassigning licenses.
