"A highly integrated tool with easy to use and advance featuures. "

What do you like best?

Data could be easily configured according to specified categories. The real in-depth functionality reduces the customization for more mature and effective service. It's a quick Application Development tool with all the customization required. It's an extremely inexpensive tool as available in the market as compared to all other such tools in the market.

What do you dislike?

BMC Discovery offers me a lot of auto generated mails that have stuffed my mail box with lots of irrelevant mails for me from them . There is a lack of more depth in functionality which leads to decreased handling with the lackage of benefit of better reporting for management. Still, usability is one of the highlighted issue in it.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have successfully implemented it in our organization to keep the track of the servers and their interference with all other applications.

"Good to Go with. "

What do you like best?

What I like the most is the ability to quickly identify all the IT assets of your company, the time it takes to evaluate it is very fast and the program offers a lot of details; is able to identify all aspects of IT ownership, perform software modeling and provide a large amount of data. BMC Discovery also analyzes and checks the changes in software and hardware components. I also like that it does not require the user to have advanced knowledge, and that the installation and use of the software is accessible to most people (with minimal computer knowledge, of course). All communications are made through secure connections, to ensure that the security of the company is not compromised.

What do you dislike?

It is a frankly good program, and I would not know how to improve it. I do not have anything bad to say.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It is relatively easy to install (although it is at this time of the installation when you have to pay more attention to program it correctly and then do not have to touch up anything) and to use, and provide so valuable information about the assets of the company, that it is worth acquiring it.

What Other IT Management solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"BMC Discovery"

What do you like best?

It doesn't take large amounts of work to setup and maintaining is virtually nothing. Once it is operational, your company really can reap the benefit of the data. The UI is really so easy to use and we actually allowed any users in the business to connect and use it.

What do you dislike?

There isn't anything I dislike from the product. It really does cater for everything we need and more.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Great product, there are many more but BMC Discovery covers more ground than most. I would recommend this every time.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have a very big architectural footprint around the globe and have so many people adding to it on a daily bases that no matter how big the team, you could never have everything recorded, never mind keep its data maintained. Discovery at least helps us keep the CMDB up to date and we leverage allot off the CMDB from change requests, to managing password controls to accounts on each server to scaling. I think people underestimate the power of having Discovery in a large environment. The other nice thing with BMC Discovery is once its running, there is so little admin behind it that once you have set it up you really can just leave it to run, provided your recon jobs are setup correctly. The other time we really do work on the server is when we need to patch it to keep the version up to date.

"More like a user defined and friendly tool for beginner and quite high tech for an experienced "

What do you like best?

a Unique feature about this product that I felt astonishing is that the product is user friendly and easy to set up.

At the same time, reliability, time saving with fast, secure mapping.

The automation of virtual discovery at times makes it really useful also the dependency relations on the available assets in the data center. On the whole, I would love to have this seen on my work environment.

What do you dislike?

Since we deal with large amounts of data, its necessary that we have large disk space, but Comparably the disk Storage seems to be less and cannot accommodate more than 2 TB which has be improved.

The quick action from the team, like support, updating the necessary plugins and all have to be faster than now.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Well, a piece of cake for beginner usages

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Supply chain management is the main reasson for me to use this product. I use BMC discovery to store information on my server regarding store products, itenaries,some media and info regarding store incoming materials information especially regarding the history of filing details necessary for property transfers plannings and processings over future and longer time.

"Discovery Tenea"

What do you like best?

Que me puede mostrar cualquier equipo o dispositivo conectado a mi red siempre que pertenezca a los rangos de direccionamiento que le indique. Puedo ver rápidamente la estructura de una red con los esquemas que muestra. Puedo permitir que cualquier usuario de la empresa se conecte y la use.

What do you dislike?

Que no me muestre los equipos que están estacados en una misma pila, ya que esta información es necesaria para realizar mi inventario.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Con esta herramienta puedo tener actualizado mi inventario automáticamente con mi otra herramienta de ticketing Remedy sin tener que exportar los datos de forma manual. Ahorro tiempo. Lo bueno de BMC Discovery es que si esta configurado correctamente la administración es muy reducida.

"Mejora la eficiencia y seguridad de la empresa"

What do you like best?

La interfaz de usuario es fácil de usar y resulta muy intuitiva. Además es muy sencillo de instalar, configurar y mantener, por lo que no supone problema alguno adaptarse a la utilización de este software.

Es la herramienta ideal para conocer hasta el más mínimo detalle la situación del activo informático de la empresa, y aporta información determinante para decidir cuándo es necesario renovar los servidores, por estar estos al final de su vida útil o simplemente porque su funcionamiento ya no es eficiente. De esta forma se consigue ahorrar costes sin que se resienta el rendimiento o la seguridad de la empresa, ya que muchos de estos servidores obsoletos podrían ser utilizados como puertas traseras, y permitir accesos no autorizados de terceros.

What do you dislike?

El precio puede resultar un poco elevado para algunas empresas pequeñas.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Si buscas un programa para la gestión de tu inventario IT que sea fácil de usar y que además ahorre mucho tiempo (siempre que el precio no te suponga un problema), BMC Discovery es lo que estás buscando realmente.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Facilita la gestión de licencias, permite controlar el buen estado del hardware o la monitorización de las aplicaciones. En definitiva, contribuye de forma esencial al buen funcionamiento de la empresa.

"Ahorra costes y mejora el rendimiento"

What do you like best?

Este es un increíble programa que permite conocer, prácticamente en tiempo real, la situación del activo informático de tu empresa. Sorprende la rapidez con la que analiza e identifica los cambios en los componentes de software y hardware, detectando que servidores se han vuelto viejos o ineficientes, y que por tanto deben ser sustituidos.

Otro de los aspectos a destacar de BMC Discovery es que, una vez que ya se está ejecutando, requiere muy poca atención, ya que realiza su labor de forma casi desatendida. Si se realiza la configuración inicial correctamente, puedes dejarlo funcionar, siempre y cuando sus trabajos de reconocimiento se hayan programado bien. Después de esta puesta en marcha, los únicos cuidados especiales que requiere serán para para mantener la versión actualizada.

What do you dislike?

Es un programa francamente bueno, y no sabría cómo mejorarlo. No tengo nada malo que decir.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Es relativamente fácil de instalar (aunque es en este momento de la instalación cuando hay que prestar más atención para programarlo correctamente y que luego no haya que retocar nada) y de utilizar, y proporciona información tan valiosa respecto a los activos de la empresa, que merece la pena adquirirlo.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

BMC Discovery supone una gran ayuda para detectar los servidores obsoletos o inseguros que deben ser cambiados, lo que permite acometer la inversión en la renovación de los mismos de forma adecuada, optimizando los costes, y favoreciendo el buen funcionamiento de todos los equipos.

"Da información útil"

What do you like best?

Son varios los aspectos positivos que se pueden destacar de BMC Discovery, pero se podrían destacar los siguientes:

Permite la detección de puertas traseras en los servidores que supongan un riesgo de seguridad para la empresa.

Todas las comunicaciones se efectúan a través de conexiones seguras.

La configuración inicial, y la utilización posterior, resulta muy fácil.

También resulta muy fácil de integrar con BMC CMDB.

What do you dislike?

Por ejemplo, podrían implementar una función que permita una revisión de los datos al final de la vida útil.

Recommendations to others considering the product

BMC Discovery permite identificar todos los aspectos de la propiedad de TI de la empresa y realizar el modelado de software, proporcionando una gran cantidad de información útil.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Al identificar claramente los activos y sus dependencias, BMC Discovery hace que resulte mucho más sencillo decidir qué activos se pueden mover a la nube y qué activos fijos se deben retirar por estar obsoletos o suponer un riesgo de seguridad.

También ahorra mucho tiempo a los trabajadores de la empresa a la hora de inventariar el TI, ya que de tener que hacerlo manualmente se tardaría más y probablemente sería menos preciso que los informes de BMC.

"Mantiene el inventario de TI al día"

What do you like best?

Lo que más me gusta es la capacidad de identificar rápidamente todo el activo informático de tu empresa, el tiempo de valoración del mismo es muy rápido y el programa ofrece una gran cantidad de detalles; es capaz de identificar todos los aspectos de la propiedad de TI, realizar el modelado de software y proporcionar una gran cantidad de datos.

BMC Discovery también analiza y comprueba los cambios en los componentes de software y hardware.

También me gusta que no exija al usuario unos conocimientos avanzados, y que la instalación y utilización del software sea accesible para la mayoría de las personas (con unos mínimos conocimientos informáticos por supuesto).

Todas las comunicaciones se realizan a través de conexiones seguras, para garantizar que no se comprometa la seguridad de la empresa.

What do you dislike?

En general es un muy buen producto en cuanto a su funcionamiento, pero podrían intentar mejorar un poco su precio para competir mejor con otros productos similares.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Además de lo ya dicho, también cumple funciones de seguridad esenciales, ya que puede localizar servidores que podrían ser puntos de entrada por la puerta trasera, identificando rápidamente las solicitudes afectadas por este problema, y ejecutando un análisis rápido de OpenSSL.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

BMC Discovery muestra automáticamente todo el inventario de TI de la empresa (incluido software, hardware, red, almacenamiento y versiones), permitiendo identificar así servidores viejos e ineficientes, que deben ser sustituidos, lo que supone un ahorro en los gastos operativos.

"Its really Reliable"

What do you like best?

Which can show me any device or device connected to my network, provided it belongs to the address ranges indicated. I can quickly see the structure of a network with the schemas it shows. I can allow any user of the company to connect and use it

What do you dislike?

That does not show me the equipment that is staked in the same pile, since this information is necessary to carry out my inventory.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

With this tool I can have my inventory updated automatically with my other Remedy ticketing tool without having to export the data manually. Time saving The good thing about BMC Discovery is that if it is configured correctly, administration is very limited.

"User friendly but need to develop"

What do you like best?

Most important aspect I would like to share is it is comparably user friendly where as other products are not like this one. At the same time, the flexibility, security and speed are really impressive. Easy to set up and faster access. On the whole, it is one of those top products I would suggest someone with less data storage need.

What do you dislike?

As I said, although this has many impressive features, the data storage of <2TB is only worry some in future. Other than this, it seems to be awesome.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Seems good enough, can work on space

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I provide shared services of media data regarding entertainment field. Since it is speed I do not really get any complaints from any of my users.

"Discovering BMC"

What do you like best?

The user interface is easy to use and very intuitive. It is also very easy to install, configure and maintain, so it is not a problem to adapt to the use of this software.

It is the ideal tool to know the situation of the company's IT asset to the smallest detail, and provides decisive information to decide when it is necessary to renew the servers, since these are at the end of their useful life or simply because their functioning is no longer efficient. This saves costs without affecting the performance or security of the company, since many of these obsolete servers could be used as backdoors, and allow unauthorized access by third parties

What do you dislike?

There isn't anything to dislike of the Product. Nothing till now.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It saves a lot of time for the company's workers when it comes to inventorying IT, since having to do it manually would take longer and probably be less accurate than BMC reports

"Indeed a Discovery for Asset Management"

What do you like best?

It can allow any user to connect and view the structure of company network in their schema. The UI is very intuitive and it is very secure. The cost is worth it because it provides information about renewing inefficient servers or non functional components. I believe this is good for my company's performance and security in the long run.

What do you dislike?

So far I have not faced any issues. However I think storage can be improved because large companies might have appliance system disk > 2TB

Recommendations to others considering the product

Do use BMC if the cost is affordable for you. The ease of use and time your employees save is worth the cost. I would strongly recommend it to any small scale industry. It is better than its competitors.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We mainly use it to for security to perform detection and for licence Management.

"Discovery keeps on improving with each version"

What do you like best?

Ability to customize patterns if you need to.

The application modeling and reporting features, such as Age Out counters.

This product is easily scalable and easy to install.

Integration with CMDB has improved with the new sync functionality.

What do you dislike?

Add-on licensing - especially with the buzz around cloud discovery - this requires add-on pricing in order to enable this functionality

Recommendations to others considering the product

Support for issues or defects has some improvements that could be made - time to resolve, for example, but have also seen improvements in this area in the last year.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Application Modeling for applications that exist in two different countries, eliminating manual entry for items.

""Discovery" is true title for the product"

What do you like best?

It is more user friendly and easy to set up.

Time saving with fast, secure delivery.

This virtually automates asset discovery and proper dependency relations on the available and set up assets in your data center.

What do you dislike?

Comparably the disk Storage seems to be less and cannot accommodate more than 2 TB which can be improved. Up to date software support approval has to be faster.

Everything seems perfect from product, service to sales. There could be a try to increase the limit of data.

Other than this, I like the rest of it, meets my need.

"BMC Discovery"

What do you like best?

The UI is user friendly and I love it. Application Modeling and its Reporting Features, Scalabilty and ease of installation. Its ability to secure the discovered data. The asset discovery process, ease of integration.

What do you dislike?

Licencing, add-on prices, The coding part, Charts availability. Disk Storage is less. There's a room for improvement there. Also, whenever a new software comes, the support to that is minimal. Apart from this, I believe its perfect.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Support can be impoved substantially.. The application infrastructure and integrations with other BMC tools can also be improved. In addition to that, I think the pricing can be reduced a little and be more realistic.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Software Modeling for security operations, asset management. Helped us in automating the process and save the time and labor.

"Excellent Configuration & Discovery Product"

What do you like best?

The ability to identify your entire IT Estate, time to value is very quick and product producing an immense amount of details. Being able to identify all aspects of the IT Estate, Perform Software Modelling and provide a huge amount of data. BMC Discovery can also help with troubleshooting root cause analysis and also provides changes it the software and hardware components of a discovery run.

BMC Discovery has good integration with AD and is also extremely secure in the way it discovers and stores data. The ability to use the credential vault means that the person installing and configuring the appliance does not need to know anything about the credentials being used to discovery.

Everything is communication over secure connections, and has huge scalability potential, being able to deploy multiple scanner appliances and also discover all types of platforms, windows, unix, switches, load balancers etc...

BMC Discovery appliance means rapid deployment, importing a VM takes minutes and configuring is very quick. The only challenges involved appear to be getting past the security team, however once everything has been explained the way Discovery works, it usually passes and after that deployment is very quick.

What do you dislike?

Reports are somewhat basic but provides a high level of data, charts could be improved.

If you want to discover custom software, TPL patterns are required to be written although templates are provided although a benefit to this is how flexible and specific they can be.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Discovery unknown IT estate, model software and use for license management.

What do you dislike?

Cost!! Its way more expensive. The add-on licencing and I believe that you guys should focus of customer support to the new softwares. With these exceptions, I would say its a great product.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are looking for scalability, reduced time and labour and if pricing isn't an issue, you should definitely consider using this product.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
