Snow License Manager

Asset management solution for software, SaaS & IaaS

About Snow License Manager

Snow License Manager is a software asset management (SAM) solution designed to help organizations reduce the risk and complexity in terms of licensing for software, SaaS, and IaaS. The solution helps companies prevent overspending on cloud resources and software entitlements, while ensuring they are fully compliant with licensing rules.

Snow License Manager provides a unified view of the organization's cloud, software, and hardware assets, along with license entitlements and application usage metrics. The solution automatically calculates compliance positions for all software assets, whether physical or virtual, in order to help simplify datacenter licensing management. Stakeholders can access customized reports which allow them to track software usage and expenditure, as well as monitor the usage of cloud subscriptions, and other deployed assets. Users are also able to create ELPs (effective license positions) for software vendors such as IBM, Adobe, Microsoft, and more, and are provided with a consolidated view for managing multiple vendors, locations, and device types in a single interface.

Tools for financial management provide insight into what is driving cost and financial risk across the company associated with non-optimized assets and non-compliance. With reports on trends and usage patterns, users are able to forecast future costs, revise cloud subscriptions and allocation, as well as renegotiate existing contracts. Snow License Manager’s role-based, multi-user platform enables organizations to provide personalized access to SAM stakeholders from finance and governance departments, procurement, or IT, and generate management reports which are relevant to their role. Snow License Manager also includes features such as the automatic detection of unused software assets and built-in automation.

    Snow License Manager is revolution in software and hardware asset management

    It is my main source of data for my software asset management program at a company of 18,000 employees.

    Pros

    I like the ease with which software and hardware can be searched and viewed at a glance. Also, the reporting module is very powerful. Reports for everyone from the PC Tech team all the way to C-level are pre-configured and ready to be exported.
    In addition to that it can act as a contract management repository and an IT finance management (ITFM) tool , with a T.C.O. of every asset in your organization.

    Cons

    Almost an overwhelming amount of data is gathered. There are so many screens and modules that it takes a while to learn and master. Also, implementation and entitlement gathering is time consuming.

    Pros

    The software give me possibility to be in control with software consumption min large company, i can easily create many reports and .csv or .pdf files.

    Cons

    I don't like support- there is always problem with time of response etc. The true is that on the market of that kind of software SNOW is the most popular and they should provide more resources to support their clients.

    Pros

    Ease of use after the implementations is completed in full.

    Cons

    The support is horrible, you need to pay for all additional features. Dashboards that show incompliance based on the number of products instead of users and installations.

    Tried to work with Snow Support for years - not helpful.

    Reviewed on 2018/06/27

    Pros

    The product does what it is suppose to do. It looks great and is a powerful tool for us. The cost was good when using a re-seller with purchase power.

    Cons

    Support is the worst. The smallest questions take days, sometimes weeks to get anything back. Initial install was flawed and took several months for SNOW to acknowledge the setup was incorrect. We hosted our environment with another company and had no access to admin tools. This caused us to rely on SNOW for answers which took an enormous amount of time to solve. Our last issue took more then 2 weeks for even after follow up emails. On the final followup email for status weeks later, we stated that we are looking at other vendors and to cancel our ticket. Within 1 hour, they closed the ticket with the comment "Customer is going to another vendor". Weeks with no response, but an hour to close the ticket.

    Hosted service has limited admin tools.

    Pros

    The SLM is easy to use, intuitive, you can manager a lot of licenses at once. Reports gives you a good oversight ot the usage of the software within the company

    Cons

    Sometimes it's very slow, if you are generating reports with many rows it can crash and re-generating report is required.
