In this IBM® Redbooks® publication, we describe the capabilities and ways to use the IBM Tivoli® Application Dependency Discovery Manager (TADDM). It is becoming critical for enterprises to track the IT resources in their environment and, more importantly, the dependencies of their business applications on various components. TADDM provides rich capabilities that discover the components of a complex infrastructure and their interdependencies.

In this book, we provide insight into the TADDM V7.1 capabilities and architecture. We include recommended procedures for installing and configuring TADDM, tips and techniques for populating the TADDM database and customizing its use and performance considerations.

Finally, we cover the sales engagement planning for TADDM V7.1, including a sample statement of work. The primary audience for this section is Business Partners and pre-sales Systems Engineers working in this area.

This book is a major reference for IT Specialists and IT Architects working in TADDM V7.1 projects.
