BMC Helix Discovery Pros

Doug Hynes
Manager, Solutions Engineering at Fusion
It is agentless, which means you don't have to install anything on all the different pieces of hardware that you are looking to discover.
It now comes with a very flexible deployment solution, whether you want to keep it inside your data center or want to have the cloud, depending on if you're cloud forward or not.
The speed at which it's able to collect a wide-range of information, then make it useful for you, like asset management, knowledge management, and incident management.

BMC Helix Discovery Cons

Doug Hynes
Manager, Solutions Engineering at Fusion
I would like to see the ability to scan some of the newer cloud platforms. I know that BMC has them on the roadmap, and they are coming soon, but they can't come fast enough. Being able to scan more of GCloud, Alibaba Cloud, or whatever the public clouds that our customers are buying, we need to make sure that Discovery can find them as well.
