    Snow License Manager

    If you need to centralize your licensing and subscriptions, this solution will work. If you are running standard computers in an office, this will give you decent utilization statistics. If you have any non-persistent workstations, then it isn't going to be for you. If you aren't running the full packages of some major software, you'll have a lot of work to do to convince Snow that you are in compliance.It is heavily dependent on the data entry quality, so if you have a central person in charge of data entry it will be a good solution. If there are many hands entering license and software data, you may run into headaches.

    Tivoli Asset Management for IT can be used very well in a big datacenter to easily manage assets. For linear assets there are other Tivoli Asset Manager products available such as for transportation domain, oil and gas.For a small scale industry, Tivoli Asset management solution is not a big help.

    Cons

    Snow License Manager

    • The reporting and searching tools are powerful, but are dependent on the person entering the data in a clean, uniform manner. We've had problems that rendered searches, primarily from data issues.
    • The utilization relies on clients writing back at assigned times, we have 'frozen' workstations that don't preserve data. This has led to many problems and manual configurations to get it working properly (and I don't think they all currently are).
    • The software identification can be troublesome. We've had many software 'alerts' that we were out of compliance because part of an application was detected as something else and then didn't match the product. Accuracy is definitely a problem.

    Tivoli Asset Management for IT (Discontinued)

    • Software bundling can be handled in a better way
    • Should eliminate rotating/non-rotating items concepts or should have an easy way to receive assets
    • Asset Topology can be introduced to see the dependencies between related assets

    Snow License Manager

    The deciding factor for the decision makers was the combination of license management and utilization statistics. Our desktop people wanted the utilization and reporting to be very granular and close to real time. Snow was purchased because they promoted their real time utilization in addition to the license management, alerting and reporting. To my knowledge, only Snow was given a proof of concept before the decision was made.

    Tivoli Asset Management is comparatively cheap and easy to implement with a rich set of complementing modules. It can also be integrated easily with other asset management solutions and act as a single source of truth for other PMP processes

    Return on Investment

    Snow License Manager

    • Utilization statistics have helped us to eliminate unused licenses and software.
    • The central repository has eliminated the multiple spreadsheets and folders, which also reduced the amount of time our asset manager spends looking up information for others.
    • The computer software mapping has helped our staff during computer upgrades. It allows them to see what software is installed on a current workstation without having to go and inspect the old computer itself. They can now look up the software that needs to be added to the new workstation, saving time.
