Asset Management Platform


Either as part of our complete Asset Management Service or as a customer operated tool, we recommend Snow License Manager, the user-friendly SAM platform with cloud and on-premise delivery options.

Fully compliant with ISO 19770 and ITIL requirements, Snow License Manager monitors all software usage from purchase to decommission and then combines this information with your agreements, ownership and entitlements to provide you with a clear and on-going picture of your software portfolio. This allows you to make informed decisions, and take timely action, based on selected analysed areas of usage, or against alerts from preset levels of usage.

Snow License Manager easily integrates with existing inventory tools, ensuring that your investment in solutions such as Microsoft SMS/SCCM, Altiris or Active Directory are utilised.

Bytes can supply and install the Snow License Manager platform for you to manage internally, or we can provide a fully managed Asset Management Service.


Snow License Manager key features:

Unified view of multi-platform, multi-site networks

  • Snow License Manager provides a consolidated view on all assets across the network, enabling staff to use just one interface to manage multiple software vendors, device types and locations. Audit data can be imported from more than one inventory source to cover the full range of enterprise computing platforms (Windows, Windows Phone, Mac OSX, iOS, Linux, Unix, Android).

Datacentre optimisation

  • Snow License Manager simplifies the management of complex datacenter licensing by automatically calculating the compliance position for all software including processor and processor core licensed software on both virtual and physical resources. Core factors for Microsoft and Oracle are automatically applied as well as minimum license assignment rules mitigating the risks of over- and under-licensing.

All key licensing types supported

  • From Microsoft and Symantec per-desktop licensing to advanced IBM PVU, Oracle and SAP metrics, Snow License Manager supports the full range of licensing types, data collection and reporting requirements. Snow Software recognises commercial software discovered on the network with more than 64,000 software publishers and over 387,000 applications recognised out-of-the-box.

Automatic detection of unused software assets

  • All unused software installations are automatically identified, providing the ability to easily uninstall and re-harvest licenses via Snow Automation Platform. With immediate insight into the total investment, compliance risk and overspend for either a single application or a whole product family, SAM managers can see the potential license optimization opportunities or overspend and take action to reduce costs.
