IT Discovery & Dependency Mapping



Operations & Automation

Many of the most common and challenging issues impacting IT services operations can be traced back to a lack of a reliable and intuitive understanding of what is their inventory and configuration domain.

Configuration management is one of the pillars for all support processes currently being operated by IT organizations. Extremely demanding from a perspective that IT changes every minute and inventory still relies on manual reconciliation activities.

Standalone systems and typical inventory solutions lack the ability to create meaningful relations between logical and physical components in such a way that is understandable from a technical and business point of view.

This condition  as lead to the development of a new breed of platforms capable of acting as inventory, but building on  that information to create a complex and interrelated set of devices and relations between one another. This concept, known as Discovery and Dependency Mapping, promises to transform the way IT departments manage data & resources.

Either by interacting with target devices directly or by integrating it with already existing applications, it is possible to create a integrated and dynamic view that represents physical devices, their logical components, and how they are connected to others devices, providing the following capabilities:


. Agentless and very low processing overhead

  • . Physical or logical segmentation of discovery settings
  • Built-In Configuration Management Database (CMDB)
  • . Enrichment of discovery model based on patterns
  • . Advanced context visualization based on views and perspectives
  • . Granular security settings by user of profile
  • . Reporting and notification engine
  • . Integration with Monitoring & Service Management Platforms.
