The Only Automatic Business Service Mapping Solution
VNT’s IlluminIT™ is the only solution available that can automatically analyze applications, create a map of their component business services, and link them to the underlying IT infrastructure in the data center and in the cloud. IlluminIT is the only solution that works top-down, starting from the business layer and then mapping the supporting IT components.
While many BSM, CMDB and CMS solutions claim to provide automatic Business Service Mapping, they in fact perform a crude scan of the IT infrastructure. They are unable to link business applications and services to the underlying infrastructure. Some organizations work around this by using system experts to manually create a service map and add the details to the CMDB or CMS. But this approach is not sustainable. Every time a change it made, the database must be updated manually. Since this doesn’t happen immediately the service map is generally out of date and of little use when an incident occurs or an urgent infrastructure fix needs to be scheduled.
Always Up to Date
VNT offers the only solution that not only generates a map, but keeps it up to date with scheduled system checks. It requires no agents and has virtually no footprint in the production environment. With scheduled automatic updates, IlluminIT ensures that the service dependency map is always current, to support effective decision making at all times.
A New Approach to Change Management
For companies that do not yet have a mature BSM or CMDB initiative, IlluminIT provides a simple way to map business applications to the infrastructure and to realize many of the benefits of a change management system – including change impact analysis and change audits – without even implementing a CMDB system.
IlluminIT complements all of the leading BSM platforms and can dramatically increase the effectiveness and ROI of all existing BSM, CMDB and CMS initiatives.
