Data Platform Discover (formerly BDNA Discover) has been offered as a solution to detect inventory items since 2006. It performs agentless discovery to help identify an assortment of software and hardware.
With Flexera’s acquisition of BDNA in 2017, the strategic direction has been to unify various discovery capabilities across Flexera. Therefore, the effort to add new features and enhancements has slowed down in favor of shifting customers to other Flexera’s discovery solutions.
This announcement marks the end of Standard Support for Data Platform Discover; and it is now entering the Extended Support phase.
