What’s New in CMS 10.33 – Machine learning added to Software License Discovery!

Nick_Rendall

Summer is in full swing, but configuration management innovation doesn’t take a vacation! July brings Configuration Management System 10.33, an exciting release with improvements for software asset management, UCMDB reporting dashboards, and public cloud discovery!

Smart Software Analytics (SSA): The industry-leading IDOL platform for unstructured data search has been added to Universal Discovery. This adds a level of machine learning to software license discovery, providing vastly improved software application index (SAI) maturity within an organization through automated software recognition and teaching. Historically, unknown software has been difficult to add to a company’s application index. This is because the process is manual and must be verified by someone with the most recent software knowledge. Powered by IDOL machine learning, UD can now automatically “fill in the blanks” of missing software title information without manual insertion of information. This capability results in reduced user effort in evaluating new software and turnaround time for software to be recognized, as well as an automatically up-to-date SAI.SSA.JPG
UCDMB Home Dashboard: The “UCMDB Home” dashboard has been added to UCMDB browser, providing a streamlined UI experience with the ability to add customized reporting widgets and access to UCMDB Admin features from UCMDB Browser. This process simplifies UCMDB administration, allows for custom reports to be sent to relevant stakeholders, and allows for quicker time to value for newer and less technical UCMDB users. Check out some screenshots of UCDMB Home below! Additional UI updates improvements include: automatic data flow probe updates across all UCMDB versions, improved history viewing of CIs, and interactive walkthroughs of UCMDB Browser for new users.
