Automating Discovery of Applications, Dependencies, and Configurations: Why What You Do Not Know Can Hurt You http://www.enterprisemanagement.com/research/asset.php?id=1683
Discovery and Dependency Mapping (DDM) technology is the key to accurate configuration data, Configuration Management Systems (CMSs), and virtually all of the ITIL IT Service Management (ITSM) processes. However, very few IT organizations feel confident that they have a central source of up-to-date, accurate, and verifiable information tying together applications, hardware and software dependencies, and data flow.
This is where Discovery and Dependency Mapping (DDM) comes into play. Join EMA Research Director Julie Craig and ASG Sr. Director of Solutions Management Ian Rowlands for this informative one-hour Webinar, which will:
*Explore the DDM landscape in more detail
*Present an innovative approach to DDM for packaged and custom applications
*Highlight how this approach enables IT to build on existing technology investments
EMA will also be hosting a Webinar with Numara Software on IT asset management on Wednesday, March 31. Check out the Free IT Management Resources from EMA page, http://www.enterprisemanagement.com/freeResearch/index.php, in the next few weeks for registration details.
