This session will cover integration to PlateSpin Recon for the virtualized environment, integration collecting the physical environment and business data integration into a single view aligning the virtual, physical and business world. This discussion will focus on the methods, mechanics and best practices of federating these data sources into a view, such as a configuration management database (CMDB) as an example, by which to take action. It is intended to cover the technical aspects of the integration capabilities to various database sources marrying application data to the infrastructure providing near real-time views of data from it's source versus solutions that extract, translate and load data into a common repository that now must be maintained. The Novell BSM solution accesses the data in near real-time from the trusted management source providing the most accurate, view of federated data turning it into actionable information.
