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.

Identify all PVU-based products

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. 

Effectively configure deployments

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.
