Improved Visibility?

I was on a customer site yesterday after a long  time working from the office.  Two visits in one day. Earlier in my career I spent all of my time in the field, so it was exciting to have the opportunity to spend time with customers again.


Anyway, what I recognized talking to folks onsite was still the same as it used to be in the past. There remains some uncertainty and fear to use application dependency discovery tools in many organizations. Customers still have many questions:


What is the benefit of using application dependency discovery solutions versus asset/inventory discovery existing in most organizations? 


How do I work with security departments to get the data I need?



Will the manual approach of mapping services and creating and maintaining CIs be more successful?


Do you feel the same? My experience of implementing and working to resolve many different customer use case in the past enables me to answer with confidence and passion. Most enterprise organizations today are driven by complex use cases in technologically complex environments.  For example, doing impact analysis on a service tree definition to detect the risk of a major change in a virtualized and clustered environment implies that you need to create and maintain the service tree definition.



ADM solutions and especially HP DDMA give you a pragmatic and automated solution of creating a service, application or infrastructure topology . Wouldn’t it be great to automatically improve the visibility in a complex infrastructure, where you need many experts in various areas today just to understand where you are? Building service definitions today is something that you can solve with an automated solution.


How can you be successful? You need the power and confidence to solve your use cases automatically to save time and budget for your organization. You can do it today.


It would be great to share your thoughts, so just reply if you need more information or just join us on the DDM Community to learn more about HP DDMA and directly interact with me and other customers and partners.



Have a nice one
