What is IBM TADDM ?

IBM Tivoli Application Dependency Discovery Manager (TADDM) is a configuration management tool that helps IT personnel ensure and improve application availability in application environments. TADDM provides the details of configuration items (CIs) using automated, agentless discovery of assets and their application dependencies, and it includes a discovery library technology to help leverage data from other sources.

Why Should You Use the IBM TADDM Connector?

The IBM TADDM connector provides visibility into the assets and applications in your environment. You can use this visibility to:

  • ensure assets are managed per your security policies

  • ensure applications are managed per your security policies

  • ingest data about assets, applications, data, and users

How Does This Connector Work?

Lucidum executes read-only requests to the IBM TADDM REST API and ingests only meta-data about IBM TADDM devices. Lucidum does not retrieve any data stored on your assets.
