The modern data center can span multiple locations, both physical and cloud, and often features software defined networks, virtualization, containers, cloud and hybrid deployments, and intricate high-availability configurations. This forward progress has brought with it complication, and it is no longer practical to manage your IT infrastructure using separate tools for asset management (ITAM), IP Management (IPAM), Cloud Management, Application Dependency Management (ADM), and Software License Management (SLM).
The dependencies and interrelationships are too complex, and too important to try to track and manage manually, and can only be sufficiently captured by an integrated tool -- like Device42.
Looking for Insight JIRA alternatives? Or for a CMDB that integrates with JIRA?
Read below to find out why Device42 is the right choice.
Insight extends Jira, allowing you to store CMDB attributes in it. Riada sells a separate product that does autodiscovery.
Device42 offers a full-fledged CMDB product with Auto-Discovery that integrates with Jira Seamlessly.
You can also integrate Device42 with other products: Atlassian Confluence and Jira Service Desk, Automation tools like Ansible and Puppet, SIEM tools like Splunk and Logstash, as well as many more -- and, Device42’s Core product includes Autodiscovery.
