Summary of 'Discovery and Monitoring Without Limit'

The Assimilation Project provides integrated IT discovery and monitoring.

Discovery is continuous and has zero-network-footprint.  Monitoring is
extremely scalable due to a radically distributed architecture.  Discovery
informs monitoring - simplifying configuration and maintenance.  Discovery
finds systems you?ve forgotten about, and services you aren?t monitoring and
dependencies.  About 30% of all outside security breaches come through
forgotten systems so this is critical for security.*

The Assimilation System provides extremely scalable easy-to-configure
monitoring, and a continually up to date, detailed configuration
management database using the Neo4j graph database.

Pre meeting food

Food will be available at the meeting location, so please show up around 6:45 pm
