One of the main challenges that I am constantly hearing from all data center managers is the lack of visibility into which resources are being used for which business service. The basic requirements is for a technology taht can discover all the servers(app, web, db, file etc..) that a particular application uses, do a graphical representation and present any interdependencies.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

There is a product that is used by EMC called SMARTS which will discover all the devices on your network, map conversations and interrelationships. We have successfully used the product (along with EMC Services) on a very significant project that had flawless execution. It is a major collaborative effort though and the toughest part will be keeping the information fresh so that you don’t end up with shelfware.
