1. A computerized method for storing a representation of at least one application in a computerized organization, the method comprising:

  • using a processor for determining, during an initial discovery, a structure of at least one application that provides at least one service in a computerized organization, wherein the structure includes tiers of configuration items, each tier having a plurality of configuration items of a same type;

    using a processor for generating a skeleton of the structure of the at least one application, wherein the skeleton includes information characterizing in each tier only configuration items determined to be of a stable type that remain part of the application for time duration greater than a threshold period and characterizing application flows between the tiers; and

    storing the skeleton to provide skeleton-based information for the processor to perform an expedited re-discovery of the structure faster than the initial discovery.
