Anyway to use UDI ZSAI Files in DDMI?
Hey folks... I have a client who has used DDMI for years and has no interest in moving to UD/UDI/uCMDB. There are quite happy with DDMI and do not need any help from Support with it, so Support going away is not an issue for them. However updated ZSAI files are no longer being provided for DDMI either which means it is becoming more and more senile as time passes.
I have not played much with UD/UDI, but AFAIK the Scanner in UDI is basically the same as what was in DDMI. Which means the Scan Files are likelly much the same. Which likelly means the XML Enrichment and Software Recognition is likely much the same. Which might mean the ZSAI file is also quite similar. These are a bunch of "maybe's", but on the off chance they hold... has anyone figured out a way to take the ZSAI updates for UDI and modify them to be backwards compatable to DDMI? Without someway to do this the client is going to be forced into purchasing and implementing a new Discovery Tool and that is something they would rather avoid. As would I since it would mean a whole set of work to build a new integration into Asset Manager without providing any net new value or functionality. To some degree it also puts Asset Manager at risk since they will likelly look at Discovery Tools which are already nativelly integrated with an ITAM tool.
