Azure Discovery and Service Mapping

Looking for a way to include Azure assets in the CMDB?  How about application dependency and service mapping across Azure and on-premise assets?  Virima has you covered.  Virima Discovery easily and seamlessly integrates with Azure to make your cloud resources available in the CMDB.  Running Virima Discovery within Azure environments also provides the same detailed dependency and service mapping you get with on-premise applications.

Benefits of integrating Virima with Azure

Truly simple integration

Configuring Virima Discovery to pull all Azure assets is as simple as entering the Azure account API credentials and initiating the import into Virima. 

Choose what goes into the CMDB

You can be as selective as you want when it comes to deciding which Azure assets you want in the CMDB.  Everything that is discovered via the API can be reviewed then moved individually, in groups or all together.  The choice is yours.

Maintain a complete CMDB

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.
