Understand What Is In Your Data Center

IT organizations of all sizes are attempting to implement IT Service Management (ITSM). The key to ITSM is understanding what is in your environment, as it is challenging to manage systems that you do not know are there.

Not knowing what you have in your environment introduces risks. There is a security risk because you cannot secure systems unless you know what they are, and there is financial risk because these systems are costly to operate in the data center.

What Is BMC Discovery (ADDM)?
