Third-party data adapters provide a mechanism for external applications to funnel data into Infrastructure Management. Data adapters facilitate the synchronization of performance data collected by specific monitoring solutions into Infrastructure Management for further analysis.
Adapters that can import monitor types are BMC Performance Manager Portal (BPM), IBM Tivoli Monitoring, HP Operations Manager (OM), and Microsoft System Center Operations Manager (SCOM). Adapters with out-of-the-box monitor types include BMC TM ART.
