Has network discovery and mapping improved for medium-scale wide

I've found lots of discovery tools, but intelligent mapping/layout still
seems to be a problem. The usual requirements for SNMP smart discovery,
interface/subnet mapping, device identification and connecting the right
symbols with the right lines to all the other symbols.
That's quite a "medium-scale".
Is there a single entity in the world that controls 1,000 networks and
100,000 network devices?
