Snow says Australia Post has partnered with the company to gain a deep understanding of their IT ecosystem - from high-level technology asset trends at post offices and delivery centres to the granular details of which versions of operating systems are in use across the entire organisation.
Änd Snow says that with this visibility, Australia Post can redistribute assets based on usage, address technology anomalies and ensure maximum value from technology investments.
“This latest partnership will give us greater insight into the performance of our software, hardware and applications assets,” said Matt Whykes, Manager of IT Billing and Finance at Australia Post.
“Like many other IT departments, time is always of the essence, and Snow’s rapid turnaround with their in-depth reports means we save time and gain greater insight from that data.
“We’ve already begun using Snow to manage technology assets in circulation. For example, we’re able to identify idle laptops and have them redistributed to areas in need, and the accuracy of our laptop and desktop fleet data has increased from 40% to 95%.
“Snow’s intelligence helps us understand and manage the relationship between user, application and the device. The partnership means we can now recognize and meter well over 8,000 cloud/SaaS applications, which is a real gain for Australia Post.”
Ken Schock, Chief Revenue Officer at Snow says today’s public sector organisations face a variety of challenges “including the migration and optimisation of the cloud, implementation of data privacy measures, control of technology sprawl and the ability to ensure efficient IT spend”.
“Without accurate intelligence around their technology ecosystems, CIOs and IT teams are unable to contribute to strategic business opportunities, and instead are forced into reactively deal with unanticipated technical issues. Snow empowers IT leaders with the insights needed to put the focus back into the growth and success of the business.”
