The SAP Integration and Certification Center (SAP ICC) has certified that Snow Optimizer rel. 3 for SAP® Software integrates with SAP NetWeaver. Technology or infrastructure products that have SAP-certified integration with SAP NetWeaver have proven to interoperate with the technology platform.
This certification comes after a year of continued innovation and investment in Snow Optimizer. Notable 2020 milestones included:
- Introduction of the Supermaster feature: Developed primarily for large enterprises with multiple subsidiaries, brands or entities, the Supermaster feature allows a parent company to make strategic decisions by providing organization-wide visibility of usage and license information for SAP solutions, while allowing the subsidiaries to maintain independent control.
- Re-certification from The ITAM Review: As independent experts and analysts on IT asset management (ITAM) and software asset management (SAM), the team at The ITAM Review has developed a set of standards to assess industry technology and verify it meets certain requirements and use cases. In June 2020, Snow Optimizer was re-certified for SAP License Management by The ITAM Review.
- 360° Evaluation of SAP Solutions with SoftwareONE: Snow and SoftwareONE teamed up to provide a new solution for organizations looking to address licensing challenges for SAP technologies, increase visibility across the SAP ecosystem, minimize audit risk and gather insights for SAP S/4HANA® negotiations or migrations.
