How often do you need to answer a relatively simple question like “which hosts are running JVM older than 1.8 update 241?”, “what types of AWS EC2 instances do we currently have active?” or “how many hosts or CPUs are running WebSphere Application Server?”?
Questions like these are necessary to understand the scope and priority of maintenance tasks, evaluate available inventory of resources, manage licenses, benchmark configurations when migrating to a new data center or a new cloud environment, identify configuration items that are out of compliance, maintain security, and more.
These questions may seem straightforward...but finding the answers are not.
Finding the answers often requires requesting reports from your IT asset management team or CMDB administrators, writing your own scripts to collect the requested information, or logging into each individual host to check required configurations, which may introduce operational and security risks. That’s also a lot of time and effort.
Each component in today’s complex enterprise IT environments is controlled by extensive configurations defined in configuration files, database tables, Windows registry, command line interface, and more. These configurations are constantly changing to address continuously evolving performance, reliability, capacity, and security requirements.
Consequently, IT struggles to maintain accessible up-to-date knowledge on all configuration baselines used across the end-to-end IT environment.
Evolven allows users to automatically detect extensive granular inventory configurations across all the layers and components of end-to-end IT environments, visualize key configuration elements, and provide powerful search and analysis reports on the configuration data via inventory dashboards, offline reports and REST APIs.
With full control and visibility into inventory configurations from key elements down to the most granular parameters, Evolven’s set of unique technological capabilities covers:
By using Evolven to track and analyze granular inventory configurations across end-to-end IT environments, leading IT organizations across the world are able to:
Evolven is proven at the world’s leading enterprise customers, monitoring and analyzing millions of configuration changes and corelating risk in over 1 million environments every day.
