I have used Netbrain in the past for automated network maps, and exporting to Visio. The Orion maps looks ok, but its tedious to use and from what I can see you cannot export that to Visio (or other packages) for using as physical evidence in Audits etc when required.
We have purchased Solarwinds Network Topology mapper and can use it as a stand alone product to map and create and automate the export of Visio diagrams, as well as export to Network Atlas and be imported into NPM for use in maps, however it would be amazing to have this functionality in the new Orion Maps feature from the web console, especially if you are scanning you network daily / weekly anyway for new SNMP/WMI devices etc.
