Mapping your way to simplified IT operations

Virima Service Mapping offers a dynamic pathway to comprehensive and accurately captured IT business services. Leveraging Virima Visual Impact Display (ViVID™), it provides vital application and service dependency mapping. 

This advanced approach includes dynamic visuals of your IT landscape, highlighting interconnected components from infrastructure, application dependencies, to business services. Additionally, it helps pinpoint NVD (National Vulnerability Database) vulnerabilities and elements of ITSM (IT Service Management), such as incidents and changes.

Transforming discovery into insights

Transitioning to the next gear, Virima Discovery takes on the heavy lifting. It automates the discovery of relationships, dependencies, and communications, eradicating the guesswork from service mapping. Now, imagine your IT operations, seamlessly receiving this intricate web of IT insights without burrowing into the granularities.

Seeing the big picture

The benefits are substantial. First, you see the big picture. Minor configuration changes will no longer have you doubting their impacts, thanks to clear application dependency mapping. Next, upon service interruptions, you can swiftly trace and rectify root causes instead of guessing the causes.

Enhancing CMDB value

Moreover, the value of your CMDB (Configuration Management Database) skyrockets. Virima Service Mapping amplifies its worth, transforming the CMDB from a complex data reservoir into a reliable resource for stakeholders.

Elevating IT operations

Virima Service Mapping achieves this through intuitive visuals and machine learning techniques. Thus generating maps that offer a foundation for extensive service dependency mapping. Apply a sprinkle of institutional knowledge, and you witness a robust mapping platform ready to prevent service disturbances and hasten recovery when necessary.

The features of Virima’s service mapping arsenal include dynamic CMDB visualizations, integration points for seamless alert communication, and personalized views that cater to specific IT roles or requirements.
