BMC Discovery 11.x: Fundamentals Application Modeling

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 creating custom patterns used in CMDB Synchronization.

IMPORTANT: The BMC Certified Professional: Discovery 11.x Online Proctored Exam is included with the BMC Discovery 11.x: Fundamentals Application Modeling course. To qualify for this exam, candidates must have a valid BMC Certified Associate: Discovery 11.x designation. Taking the exam and pursuing certification is optional. You will have one attempt to pass the exam. No retakes will be offered. Those who pass will receive the title of BMC Certified Professional: Discovery 11.x.
