NEW CONNECTORS

The following connector has been added to Snow Integration Manager 5.15:

Adobe Creative Cloud

The Spend Optimization for Adobe Creative Cloud option released in Snow License Manager 9.2 provides insight into how this bundle is licensed, assigned, and used across your organization. It provides insights about, for example, users who have been assigned with a license but are not using the applications covered, users who could potentially be licensed in a cheaper way, and users who are using Adobe Creative Cloud applications without a managed license – one of the most common causes for concern our customers experience today. The connector for Adobe Creative Cloud extracts the necessary data points from the Adobe portal to visualize and calculate the insights provided by Snow License Manager, including: email users use to access their Adobe account, last logon information, and usage.

ENHANCEMENTS

The following enhancements have been implemented in Snow Integration Manager 5.15:

VMware vSphere connector additional data points are extracted about clusters, hosts and virtual machines running in VMware vSphere. This information is used to calculate Oracle licensing requirements as well as rule data on clusters for general licensing calculations, and includes, for example, thread counts, core counts, and whether DRS or high availability is enabled.
NOTE
This enhancement requires Snow Inventory Server 6.0.4 or higher
