BMC announced BMC Discovery, a comprehensive solution for IT discovery and dependency mapping, which is essential for meeting automation requirements, compliance regulations, and improving the ability to respond to security threats.

BMC Discovery builds on BMC Atrium Discovery and Dependence Mapping (ADDM) by delivering the capability to map an application from any related piece of information, giving IT organizations critical visibility to understand how their responsibilities impact the business. With BMC Discovery, IT can link business applications, infrastructure and software in minutes to create an optimized and more agile data center.

Today's enterprise data centers are going through a transformation that focuses on optimizing existing assets while continuing to remain lean, secure, and agile. Using BMC Discovery, IT can optimize storage space, recycle virtual machines, and remove unused hardware and software. To remain secure and compliant, IT benefits from an accurate inventory of its infrastructure, identifying idle or outdated servers that could be back door entry points to threats while also discovering how these threats impact the business. BMC Discovery provides a solid understanding of current applications and how they support the business, which is vital to agile change management. In short, BMC Discovery becomes the backbone of Digital Enterprises.

Start anywhere application mapping, unique to BMC Discovery, allows users to map an application based on any piece of information known about it. This gives critical insight to administrators for network, storage, applications, server, and other IT functions about how their configuration changes affect the business. BMC Discovery becomes a trusted, single source of dependency for all IT lines of business.

"We have hundreds of customers who have been using ADDM for application discovery and dependency mapping, and the new ‘start anywhere' capabilities presented the perfect opportunity to rebrand our solution as BMC Discovery," said Robin Purohit, President, Service Support at BMC. "Our customers are able to more quickly and efficiently understand what assets they have and how those assets link to the business. BMC Discovery and the actionable intelligence gained from it become the foundation of managing the new digital enterprise."

BMC Discovery is a lightweight software appliance that gets monthly content updates. It is easy to deploy, and benefits are immediate through embedded analytics. BMC Discovery offers predictable and transparent pricing, either perpetual or through subscription.
