Discovery and Dependency Mapping

Know the facts to make the right choice

Evaluate the market

Maintaining data center asset and dependency information hinges on precise asset accountability. IT can’t know what assets support which part of the business through discovery alone. Application discovery and dependency mapping are interrelated and should come from a single, trusted solution.

Depth and experience make a difference

BMC Discovery has over 10 years of experience offering remarkable discovery and dependency mapping capabilities. With research conducted by IDC which found 470% ROI in 5 years with a payback of 8 months, we are certain you will be impressed and delighted with the value that comes from having BMC Discovery.
