BMX Helix Discovery

Deliver fast, accurate, and secure cloud
and on-premises asset visibility

BMC Discovery for Multi-Cloud automates asset discovery and application dependency mapping to build a holistic view of all your data center assets, multi-cloud services, and their relationships.

Discovery creates a dynamic, holistic view of data center and multi-cloud assets, highlights their relationships, and gives IT crucial visibility into how the infrastructure enables the digital business. Each scan delves into the information and dependencies for all software, hardware, network, storage, and cloud services—providing IT with the context needed to create an application map from any piece of information about it.

Discovery automates asset discovery and dependency mapping to better gain visibility into management of digital services in multi-cloud and on-premises environments. It provides the trusted foundation for building application maps that enable digital transformation to be more aware, secure, and cost transparent.
