Snow Software Delivers Industry-Leading Data Center Optimization with New Microsoft and Oracle Capabilities

Sponsored by Businesswire

, the global leader in technology intelligence
solutions, today 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.

“As digital transformation eats the enterprise, our customers are faced
with increasingly complex technology ecosystems,” said Peter Björkman,
Chief Technology Officer at Snow. “We continue to make it easier for
businesses to manage the cost, efficiency and risk associated with
enterprise technology, ultimately supporting their ability to empower
employees with the software and services that best drive performance.”

With this release, Snow extends automation 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 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 five billion records exposed last year alone. In an effort to
minimize cyber threats and incidents, Snow’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
