Create a Visual CMDB with Business Service Mapping

Through hard work and automation your CMDB is accurate, up to date and data rich but how do you make the data consumable to the many stake holders and roles? You do it by unlocking the power of VIRIMA’s dynamic Business Service Maps (BSM). Building off VIRIMA CMDB’s automatic relationship and dependency mapping, VIRIMA BSM allows you to easily associate enterprise services with the underlying infrastructure’s configurable items (CIs), system monitoring alerts and ITSM processes.

A picture is worth a thousand words so dynamic CMDB visualizations of things like infrastructure relationships, application and service dependencies and communications between systems eliminates much of the guesswork and unintended consequences of change. A visualized CMDB with Business Service Mapping also decreases the time to identify root causes of service outages.

Why VIRIMA Business Service Mapping?

IT asset and configuration details are of little value to your organization while they are locked in your CMDB. Value is realized when information is consumed and used to support decisions, restore services and operational processes. Discovery found the nuggets and configuration management refined them, now it is time to display them in various meaningful and impactful ways.

By visualizing relationships and dependencies in your CMDB, your IT staff will be more equipped to uncover hidden and not-so-obvious weak links that could threaten the health of your business services.
