Device42 for Transformation

Digital transformation activities such as data center migration, consolidation, or moving to the cloud aren’t a point-in-time activity – they’re a continuous part of IT evolution. With Device42, you get the information you need to make decisions about what and how to transform your infrastructure with confidence.

Use Cases

  • Cloud Migration
  • Data Center Migration
  • Data Center Consolidation
  • Workload Optimization
  • Microsegmentation Analysis


  • Accelerate data center or cloud migration
  • Optimize infrastructure and cloud spend
  • Discover complex workload environments

D42 has been helping us for the server migration planning, reports are helping in application assessment and move group finalization and decide right sizing for target server

Information Technology and Services

Our goal for using the product is to be able to migrate apps to the cloud successfully. E.g., you can’t move something if you don’t know all the dependencies or all the bits and pieces that need to go with it. If you move something and forget, “Because it talks to this database,” and no one realized, then it’s going to fail. You will have downtime and have to move everything back. App dependency is the biggest part for us right now.

We have used the solution in conjunction with our clients’ migration to the cloud. The view it provides of assets and application dependencies assists in getting things to work post migration because of Application Dependency Mapping. We can easily migrate the business and infrastructure applications, thus determining the other applications it is dependent on. This way we can easily predict how to migrate and the things that need to be done while migrating.

Software License Management

While understanding what assets are deployed across the data center infrastructure is a critical component, it’s also important for organizations to create and maintain a comprehensive, accurate profile of the software deployed on machines across the entire IT infrastructure.

  • Catalog installed packaged software, patches, and versions
  • Compare current usage to license counts
  • Detect prohibited software
  • Track license agreements and expiration dates
  • Identify purchased vs. installed software

Application Dependency Mapping

Application Dependency Mapping (ADM) allows Device42 to auto-discover application dependencies and service dependencies on a deeper level across your entire network. ADM is valuable in a range of scenarios. Migration and transformation projects are informed by the detailed dependency information that ADM surfaces. Lifecycle operations ITSM and DevOps are likewise enhanced as information about downstream impacts from incidents is made available.

  • Agentless services and application discovery using native protocols.
  • Application dependency diagrams visualize application to device relationships.
  • Use Application Impact Lists to reduce risk and potential downtime.
  • Automatically discover application components for applications such as Oracle, Postgres, MySQL, MongoDB, IIS etc.
  • Detailed configuration discover for major applications like Oracle, Microsoft SQL, MongoDB, PostgreSQL, MySQL, ColdFusion, IIS, Apache, and more.

Infrastructure data isn’t very useful if you can’t easily integrate it with other tools. Device42 integrates with every tool you’re already using to manage your IT infrastructure. That includes ITSM tools like ServiceNow, Jira Service Desk, and Freshservice, as well as Configuration Management tools like Ansible, Puppet, Saltstack, and Chef.
