Transcript

  • 1. The problems we are addressing Why Atrium Discovery?
  • 2. Why Are You Here?
    • The IT environment is complicated
    • You don’t know what’s where
    • You have a compelling need to understand it and quickly
  • 3. Compelling Events
    • Certain IT projects affect a large part of the environment:
      • Datacenter move
      • Virtualization / optimization project
      • Software license audit
      • Populating a system of record: CMDB, asset register, etc
    • To succeed, you have to understand that environment
  • 4. Why Is Understanding So Hard? (1)
      • Error prone
      • Slow
      • Expensive
      • Unsustainable
      • Exceptions are hard to track
      • Unsatisfactory: no dependency information
    • Manually baselining is:
  • 5. Why Is Understanding So Hard? (2)
    • You’re trying to investigate environments that you don’t own
    • The actual owners:
      • Are unknown
      • Are busy
      • Have no incentive to cooperate
      • May be suspicious of what you’re doing
  • 6. Requirements of the Baseline Process
    • To be useful, the baseline must:
      • Provide a business view of the estate
      • Answer 90% of the question before you’ve asked it
      • Reduce your reliance on the experts in other parts of IT
    • To be feasible, the baseline must be:
      • Automatic
      • Repeatable at no extra cost
      • Fast – feasible to baseline on an ongoing basis
      • Robust against failure
  • 7. BMC Atrium Discovery (1)
