BMC Discovery creates a dynamic, holistic view of all data center assets and the relationships between them, giving IT crucial visibility into how the assets support the business. Each scan delves into the information and dependencies for all software, hardware, network, storage, and versions, providing IT with the context needed to create an application map from any piece of information about it. A lightweight footprint allows IT to map applications with up to 100% accuracy in 15 minutes or less.
BMC Discovery automates asset discovery and dependency mapping to better gain visibility into management of digital services. In minutes, IT can link infrastructure and software to how it impacts the business to optimize capacity, ensure stronger security, and improve service, change, and problem management.
Maintaining data center asset and dependency information is a challenge. Application mapping hinges on precise asset accountability; without it, data center decisions are based on best effort. IT cannot consolidate and prioritize fixes, perform audits, and know what assets support which parts of the business purely through speculation.
Agentless, Lightweight, and Scalable: BMC Discovery is a ready-to-run virtual appliance. Deployment takes minutes; there is no installation process to run through, no external database to install and configure, and no specific configuration and operating system requirements to satisfy.
