Concerning the New HOPEX features, are there any additional features instead for Application Portfolio Management?
Beyond the UX improvements, HOPEX Aquila provides new functional features that will accelerate APM practices. The main ones will be:
Can Discovery use other tools already deployed in the data center? Getting new discovery tools deployed are often a challenge with security/work teams.
Yes, we are aware of these security issues. AI-Driven APM can be used without the discovery feature we provide. It can be used from any list of technologies (depending on the quality of your data), and thanks to AI/ML technologies, it will automatically detect business applications and then potential capabilities supported.
Can you estimate how much faster you can build the EA baseline with this AI tech?
Even if it's difficult to estimate this precisely, the first results of automatic technology discovery can be obtained quickly (within a few days), while the detection of applications based on deployed technologies and the connection with supported business capabilities are immediate. Everything then depends on the user's ability to validate (or not) these recommendations quickly.
Will the AI-Driven APM be able to discover all the business applications and fetch the details and their details, including Cloud site, Type, Geo Location, Technology used etc.. automatically?
Software technology and applications, once discovered, are normalized, classified, enriched with functional description automatically, then mapped against capabilities. No geographic / location information is included at this stage.
Are the inputs to the various AI suggestions or recommendations visible? Such as... how the recommendation of technology vs. application is determined?
The recommendations are based on various data from the scanned names of the files + reference data (belonging to Partners and MEGA).
