CDW Gets Software Asset Management

Knowing what's actually on your network can be a big challenge in itself. With CDW Software Asset Management, powered by Snow, you can conduct a comprehensive audit to capture a complete inventory of every software application running on every hardware device on your network.

We can help take your asset inventory information to the next level by providing you with license reconciliation, so you can compare what you have installed in your environment to what you're entitled to with your purchases.

Why CDW Software Asset Management?

The CDW Software Asset Management Solution can help your organization navigate the complexities of software licensing to realize the full potential of your software assets. Here's what you get:

  • 100% Visibility—CDW Software Asset Management will find all IP-addressable hardware, including servers, desktops, laptops, network printers, switches and devices. A baseline audit provides a full hardware and software inventory along with physical-location mapping of the assets.
  • Remote Auditing—All IT assets can be monitored anywhere in the organization, whether they're on-site or connected remotely to the network.
  • Multi-Platform Tracking—Supported enterprise platforms include: Microsoft Windows, Linux, Unix, Apple OSX and AIX, Windows Mobile smartphones and PDAs.
  • Virtualization Support—Monitor and manage virtual applications including VMware and Microsoft App-V applications. Support for licenses in Microsoft Terminal Server or Citrix environments. Choose between licenses based on total amount or concurrent users/devices. Easily check which devices and users have used which applications in your Terminal Server environment and track usage trends over time.
  • Leverage Existing Data—Integrate easily with all existing inventory tools, such as Microsoft SMS/SCCM, Altiris and Active Directory, to maximize your return on existing investments.
  • Accurate IT Planning and Budgeting—With up-to-date inventory records, department migrations and other complex IT projects can be scoped with greater accuracy, planned more completely and executed successfully.
  • Reduced Risk—Establish and maintain software license compliance by ensuring that software used does not exceed licenses held. Prove compliance with fast and accurate reports.
  • License Reconciliation—Using the Software Asset Management Solution's reporting function, our software licensing specialists can help you reconcile your software license inventory with your software agreements to ensure compliance. Our specialists will review your current agreements and determine if you can save money by consolidating agreements or achieve a more cost-effective pricing tier.
