Official release announcement for Snow Integration Manager 5.4

Blog Post created by Myrja.Schumacher Employee on Jun 21, 2017

A new package was uploaded July 5, 2017:  SIM 5.4 build No.266

To accelerate the speed of Software Asset Management (SAM) adoption and minimize the disruption associated with implementing a new technology, Snow makes it easy to integrate the SAM platform with existing investments such as autodiscovery tools, IT Asset Management (ITAM) solutions and Service Desks.  

Snow Integration Connectors reduce both licensing and implementation costs by taking advantage of existing investments and avoiding technology duplication.
