Tech1Management of IT can be complex. There are ways of making your life easier however, such as focusing on application discovery, application dependency mapping and continually tracking changes in real time across multiple sites.

In order to do this, you need to be able to understand what is in your environment, establish exactly how your application elements are dependent upon each other, and be able to identify how changes, big or small, affect your business operations.

To discover applications, you need to be able to discover not only which applications you use, but also their underlying hardware, Operating System and actual state. To achieve this, there are two methods available: being agent-less or using a script-based discovery method. Both have the option to be run concurrently and proactively with automated scheduling.
