Cherwell Discovery and Service Mapping

Virima delivers affordable, flexible, feature-rich and easy to deploy discovery and service mapping to Cherwell.  Available as both SaaS and on prem, Virima’s deep discovery capabilities and automated dependency and relationship mapping gives Cherwell customers a leg up on their digital transformation by ending the chaos of managing and securing today’s dynamic, dispersed and complex IT estate.

Benefits of integrating Virima with Cherwell

Codeless integration and configuration

Integration to the Cherwell CMDB is 100% codeless and a breeze to configure through Virima’s web admin portal.  There you choose from over 100 Virima blueprints to map to Cherwell objects (including custom objects), ID which discovery properties you want to synch, and choose asset-specific correlators to ensure nothing is ever duplicated.

Flexible Discovery options for hybrid IT

Discovery options include scheduling agentless IP-based scans with over 140 extendable probes as well as an installable agent for work-from-home and roaming PC’s.  Additional discovery is performed via API integrations with popular hypervisor, cloud, network, storage and monitoring solutions.

Cherwell CMDB automation

Choosing which Virima discovered assets or updates to move to the Cherwell CMDB is also a snap.  Simply view all assets and updates from a filterable list in Virima and select which to copy to the Cherwell CMDB.  Business rules can be applied to automate moves to CMDB for a hands-free approach to keeping the CMDB current.

Data accuracy and accessibility matters

Within the Cherwell CMDB all synched assets and configuration properties are viewable from the Cherwell web client and desktop agent.  New action links automatically appear in the Cherwell CMDB record providing ITSM users the ability to rescan the asset and view available Business Service Maps.

Business Service Maps

Business Service Maps (BSM) provide consumable views of automatically generated infrastructure relationships, application/service dependencies, network topologies and system communications.  In a near-future release, BSM’s will include ViVID™ (Virima Visualized Impact Display) overlays of Cherwell open Incidents and pending/recently completed Changes.  ViVID greatly decreases the time to perform impact analysis of planned changes and identify the root causes of service disruptions.
