7.2 Key SCM Features

The key features of SCM are:

  • Auto-discovery that detects dependencies, baselines “normal,” and identifies scheduled and unscheduled changes

  • Integrated mapping of element relationships across an enterprise

  • Integration of asset, configuration, and change sources into a CMDB

  • Building and maintenance of Service Views automatically and dynamically, alleviating the need to create, update, and maintain views (models) manually
