Discover how Steria implemented a multi tenanted BSM 9 system with Discovery, uCMDB and the Run Time ServiceModel to allow improved operational visibility as well as Service integration as part of a new infrastructure.

You'll learn:

1) the benefits found from using Discovery, uCMDB and BSM integrated together
2) the processes put in place to ensure it works
3) how standardising on the same structure (tools and processes) across the organisation has made Steria
    more cost effective
