Snow Software, a provider of software asset management and cloud spend management solutions, has launched Snow for Cloud and announced enhancements in Snow’s Oracle Management Option and Snow for ITSM.
Snow for Cloud provides IT leaders with transparent, actionable views of their software as a service (SaaS) environment so they can assess and manage cloud usage and spend. It provides them insight to discover, make an inventory of, and track consumption of more than 1,000 SaaS applications.
This deep analytical insight enables IT leaders to quickly and accurately identify overspend from duplicate, unused or underutilized SaaS subscriptions. Snow for Cloud also automates manual access requests and provisioning processes that are often costly and inefficient.
In addition, Snow has also announced enhancements to its Oracle Management Option and Snow for ITSM.
Snow's Oracle Management Option provides CIOs and IT leaders with a complete overview of Oracle databases deployed in their environments. With visibility into data risk, IT leaders have a greater understanding of what platform Oracle is deployed into, whether physical or virtualized, or in a SaaS or IaaS environment.
Snow for ITSM supports a number of ITSM platforms with up-to-date asset information, software and users, improving CMDB data accuracy. Snow’s automatic identification and normalization of software and consolidation from multiple data sources will improve the efficiency of Help Desk operations
"Many organizations have gone beyond cloud-first and are now cloud-only. Cloud computing has become the new normal." said Peter Björkman, CTO at Snow Software. "Business units can now deploy SaaS solutions without the involvement of IT. This leaves IT without visibility or control of their SaaS environment and uncertainty as to what is being used, where and by whom. This is creating a Disruption Gap, a gulf between what IT understands about technology usage and what is actually occurring.”
