UK: Snow Software, a leading provider of software asset management tools, has set a new standard for software asset management (SAM), by extending its solution to enable license optimisation of cloud-based applications.
Available now, Snow License Manager Version 6.2 has been designed to address the growing complexity of today’s IT environments and provides users with a central hub and toolkit for effective software license management and optimisation.
Increasing numbers of organisations are migrating software applications to the cloud in order to achieve cost savings. Snow License Manager 6.2 enables them to benefit from additional cost reduction opportunities, by optimising their use of web applications and cloud based services in the same easy way as traditional applications.
Now, for the first time, IT departments who have adopted cloud based business applications, including Office 365, Salesforce, will have the ability to manage the licenses purchased and also ensure they are not paying for additional licenses unnecessarily.
In addition to license management and optimisation for cloud-based applications, Snow License Manager 6.2 offers the following features:
Enhanced support for virtual applications: includes Microsoft App-V, VMware ThinApp and Citrix XenApp. This feature allows users to benefit from virtualization without losing control of licenses.
