IT organizations struggle to answer fundamental questions about their data centers like “What assets do I have, and how are they connected?” and “Where are they located, and how are they being used?” Manual data collection methods cannot keep pace with today’s complex and dynamic IT environments. The result? Unreliable data and too much guesswork lead to audit penalties, failed changes, longer problem resolution times and outdated business continuity plans.
BMC Atrium Discovery and Dependency Mapping (ADDM) automatically finds and maintains a complete and up-to-date inventory of data center assets and the relationships between them, which ensures data accuracy and reduces data collection costs. Having visibility and transparency into all data center assets, their location, their usage and their relationships to each other gives you the knowledge and ability to reduce business risk and make better business decisions. Collaborative application mapping simplifies and automates the application mapping process. By understanding complex application dependencies, IT has the insight it needs to make the right planning choices, safely manage changes, prioritize incidents and understand the real costs of IT.
