BMC Discovery 21.x: Fundamentals Application Modeling (SPT)

BMC Discovery is a datacenter discovery solution that automatically discovers datacenter inventory, configuration and relationship data, and maps applications to the IT infrastructure. BMC Discovery establishes the foundation for improving IT processes and productivity by providing timely and actionable insight to make informed decisions in IT service management, asset management and infrastructure/operations management.

This course enables users to extend and maintain a BMC Discovery deployment beyond the initial baseline. It also enables users to model the complex custom software using the Start Anywhere Application Mapping (SAAM), Collaborative Application Mapping (CAM), and The Pattern Language (TPL) features. This course also covers CMDB Extensions used for enhancing CMDB synchronization.

IMPORTANT: This Self-Paced Training (SPT) course contains only a course instructor video that includes a demonstration of recorded lab exercises.
