    • The problems we are addressing Why Atrium Discovery?
    • 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
    • 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
    • Why Is Understanding So Hard? (1)
        • Error prone
        • Slow
        • Expensive
        • Unsustainable
        • Exceptions are hard to track
        • Unsatisfactory: no dependency information
      • Manually baselining is:
    • 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
    • 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
