Can anyone have the comparison between Snow and IBM BigFix?
Please help me understand exactly what you want to compare.
I would not advise trying to compare these products as this is not really possible. It is not a case of Snow or ILMT. LEt me explain.
ILMT is the only source of IBM PVU compliance data that IBM approves and recognises. It is in fact a pre-requisite for any IBM customer using PVU licensing in sub-capacity. If you look at the latest IBM Passport advantage license terms you will see it is quite clearly stated as being required. However, ILMT does not help with Compliance and does not have the ability to reconcile your licenses.
Snow License Manager collects the IBM PVU data from ILMT automatically and uses this data to provide the PVU figures for the IBM licenses, and then through our contract and license management functions Snow will provide a compliance position for your licenses.
In reality it s not a Either/Or question, it requires both to get you to a license compliance position.
If your thinking about ILMT can I suggest you speak to you local Sales team who will be able to provide more information about the two products and they can also arrange to expand on this further with a technical call.
IBM Bigfix is the IBM discovery tool which don't have ability to calculate the compliance however Snow does the Discovery as well as calculate the compliance & audit reporting.
Bigfix/ILMT are the Mandatory tools for IBM sub capacity IBM ILMT & Bigfix helps in calculating the Full Capacity & subcapacity licensing.
Snow have the connector to get the your ILMT/Bigfix data to calculate the accurate compliance.
I hope, this short summary will be helpful for you.
