VMware Smart Assurance Business Impact Manager (BIM) is an optional component for a VoIP Availability Manager deployment.

Preparing the Business Impact Manager for discovery involves configuring the VoIP Availability Manager, invoking a full discovery for IP Availability Manager, and, depending on your Service Assurance Management Suite version, configuring the Global Manager. The VMware Smart Assurance VoIP Availability Manager Configuration Guide provides instructions for completing these tasks.
