Snow Software announced enhanced optimization for Microsoft and Oracle along with advanced analytics for software vulnerability and compliance risks.
The latest features and enhancements to the Snow platform provide organizations with the complete visibility and manageability required to maximize the value of their technology.
“Digital transformation consumes the enterprise. Consequently, our customers are facing increasingly complex technology ecosystems,” said Peter Bjoerkman, Chief Technology Officer at Snow Software. “We continue to make it easier for businesses to manage the cost, efficiency and also risk associated with enterprise technology, ultimately supporting their ability to empower employees with the software and services that best drive performance.”
Snow Software helps unleash innovation
With this release, Snow Software extends automation. It aims to help organizations tame their biggest technology pain points; while unleashing productivity and innovation across the enterprise. New features include:
- Advanced optimization for Windows Server, including automated recommendations for optimal edition licensing
- Automated entitlement imports for Oracle to dramatically reduce the time and risk associated with manual efforts
- Detailed insights into IBM and VMware partitioning to ensure Oracle license compliance and optimization
- Dynamic compliance exclusions for common enterprise vendors to account for scenarios such as production and test environments
Snow Software also released advanced analytics to reduce risk across the entire business. According to a 2018 Ponemon Institute and IBM study, the average cost of a data breach is nearly $3.9 million. Despite rising costs, security incidents continue to increase at alarming rates, with some reports estimating around 5 billion records exposed last year alone.
In an effort to minimize cyber threats and incidents, Snow Software’s new governance and risk features identify known vulnerabilities tied to software currently implemented and in use within an enterprise. Immediate visibility enables businesses to prioritize and reduce data risks across all cloud, on-premises and hybrid environments.
These innovations follow on Gartner’s recent recognition of Snow as a Leader in the Magic Quadrant for Software Asset Management Tools for the second year in a row.
