Session description
Over the years, organizations have struggled to establish configuration management capabilities and implement a CMDB. Extended time, effort and cost, the inability to demonstrate "quick wins", data quality management issues, confusion over asset versus configuration management, multiplicity of data sources are some of the roadblocks. Today, organizations are skeptical about the success of their CMDB implementation projects. So what is the best implementation approach to minimize risk and guarantee success?

Configuration Management System, service assets, knowledge management, integration of asset management with configuration management are some of the concepts in ITIL v3 that help in building robust and scalable CMDB solutions.

In this session, Gaurav Dutt Uniyal shares his experience on the best practices followed by organizations that have successfully implemented CMS and CMDB. He draws on his experience in CMDB implementations and ITIL v3 assessment to provide insight into what works and what doesn't for configuration management in the real world. He discusses how ITIL v3 can change the way organizations manage their configuration management implementation projects.
