Snow Software have launched a license management module specifically for Microsoft SMS and Microsoft SCCM customers.
“Snow License Manager automatically combines infrastructure information provided by Snow Inventory, Microsoft SMS® or Microsoft SCCM® with information such as software contracts, purchased licenses, ownership and prices.”
Microsoft SMS is a very popular tool but has long lacked proven Software Asset Management functionality. Microsoft bought AssetMetrix a few years ago but this has done little to improve the reputation of Microsoft SMS as a credible license management tool.
