BMC Discovery (ADDM) has been designed from its inception to be highly scalable, flexible, and easy to use.

Fast time to value

Big Discovery

Our new Big Discovery appliance clustering technology delivers a fresh view of your data center as often as you need with no speed or scale limits—even for data centers with more than 100,000 servers.

Collaborative application mapping

Reduce the time and effort to map applications with just a small amount of seed data from application owners. The resulting application map is automatically updated when changes occur in the IT environment.

Robust search and analytics

Slice, dice, and analyze the data right in the UI. Out-of-the-box dashboards and reports answer common data center questions. Powerful Google-like search quickly locates information with a just few keywords or phrases.

Data provenance

Provenance provides full transparency into how the data was discovered right in the UI—the command that was executed, the output of the command, and the timestamp when it happened.

Software and hardware reference libraries

Our software end-of-life reference library helps you quickly identify software that is no longer supported and makes it easier to plan for software upgrades. Use the hardware reference library to quickly identify inefficient hardware for Green IT projects.
