Snow License Manager product overview

What is 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.

Key benefits of using Snow License Manager

  • Snow License Manager enables organizations to automate processes with a built-in SKU repository, helping eliminate time-consuming manual effort.

  • The solution helps SAM managers to discover potential license optimization and deletion opportunities with accurate insight into the total investment and compliance risk for a single application or a whole product family.

  • Snow License Manager helps simplify complex datacenter licensing management with automatic calculations on compliance positions for all software including processor core licensed software on both physical and virtual resources.

  • Mitigate the risks of over- and under-licensing by applying core factors for Microsoft and Oracle, as well as minimum license assignment rules.

  • Get complete insight on what is driving software cost within the business as well as financial risk in terms of non-compliance or non-optimized assets.

    Snow License Manager is revolution in software and hardware asset management

    Reviewed 3 years ago

    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.

    Manage and track license usage with ease!

    Reviewed 5 months ago
    Pros

    A well-developed software recognition database that shows and allows to manage products, not just a single components. The user interface is clear and intuitive. The program itself is easy to maintain and constantly developed with an active community.

    Cons

    The asset management part could be more developed.

    Good tool for Software Asset Management

    Reviewed 8 months ago

    The customer support - they don't reply or ask several times the same questions even though the answer is already included in the request. Except that it's worth checking.

    Pros

    Helps to organize the licenses within the company.

    Cons

    With on-premise solution you need to wait for Daily Update Job (DUJ) (somethimes more than 24hrs) in order to see the data in Snow License Manager (SLM).

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

    Reviewed 3 years ago
    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.
