DDMI, formerly known as Enterprise Discovery, is HP’s best-of-breed solution for hardware and software inventory needs. Using a combination of agent-less and agent-based technologies, this tool quickly and accurately provides a comprehensive inventory of your network devices, printers, servers and desktops along with the software installed on them. Its core strengths include:
- Strong emphasis on accuracy – ability to reconcile multiple views of a device into a single comprehensive device view, thus avoiding “double-counting” of devices. Critical in environments where a device can move around (e.g. laptop users) or change IP address by way of DHCP or VPN connections
- Focus on virtualization – can provide an inventory per virtual device for a number of virtualization platforms, including VMware and Solaris containers
- Large, extensible software library – over 20,000 entries, with monthly updates, which can be easily extended by customers to include applications, such as custom apps, not present in the out-of-the-box software library
- Integrations to BTO portfolio – integrates with HP AssetManager, HP ServiceManager, HP DDM and HP Client Automation to provide out-of-the-box solutions for asset management, service management and configuration management
