This integration between HPE Enterprise Maps (HPE EM) and HPE Universal CMDB (UCMDB) allows an architect to reuse and link UCMDB's technology layer entities, in order to provide full traceability from business to technology layer entities.
UCMDB is a primary source of information about runtime systems. HPE EM can import and synchronize relevant data from UCMDB configuration items (CIs). This gives the architect up-todate data about the baseline architecture at the Technology layer and brings visibility on the as-is state. The enterprise architect can reuse the imported UCMDB CIs and link them to the application architecture to provide traceability between the application and technology layer.
CIs in UCMDB representing physical application model are aligned with logical application architecture in HPE EM repository. Automatic alignment is configurable, i.e. declare a mapping file to import CIs, e.g. business services, web services, organizations, servers, system software from uCMDB to HPE EM. After importing CIs from UCMDB successfully, user can view them in HPE EM user interface. Alignment is measurable and provided as KPIs. Alignment is also supported manual way for wrongly aligned entities. Disconnected entities are presented as list and can create appropriate logical artifact. Those entities can be marked as ignored or rogue.
For example, after import and synchronize UCMDB data, system softwares are grouped by name and version. User will see systemSoftwareArtifact instances which define types of software that is used in the company, and the imported UCMDB data are grouped by associated configuration item name and version. There are no duplicate entities created with the same name and version.
