    About This Guide

    This guide explains how to set up the IBM Maximo Integration Adapter for Maximo Discovery 2005. IBM Maximo Integration Adapters use the IBM Maximo Integration Composer (formerly Maximo Fusion) to import information technology asset data collected by asset discovery tools into the IBM Maximo deployed assets database tables.

    The IBM Maximo Integration Adapter for Maximo Discovery includes a pre-defined mapping for converting data from the Maximo Discovery asset discovery tool into the format required by the Maximo deployed assets tables. This guide explains how to import the mapping in this adapter into the Integration Composer, but it does not explain how to use the Integration Composer. For more information about using the Integration Composer to migrate data into Maximo, refer to the IBM Maximo Integration Composer System Administrators Guide or to the online help in the Integration Composer application.

    This section explains how this guide can help you to use the IBM Maximo Integration Adapter for Maximo Discovery. It also provides information about other IBM Corporation resources available to you, such as additional documentation and support.

    Audience

    This guide is designed for the system administrator, network administrator, or other professional who is responsible for using the Integration Composer to import data collected by Maximo Discovery into Maximo.
