Session Overview
Configuration Management Database (CMDB) has emerged as a powerful enabler of business-IT alignment, with far-reaching benefits in diverse areas. Envisioned as a repository of all IT components and their relationship information, CMDB presents several challenges in data management, including:

  • designing a uniform data model
  • deciding data depth and breadth
  • assigning accountability for data management
  • keeping data updated

Organizations that learn from Data Governance best practices do a better job in meeting these challenges.

This session uses real-life examples to demonstrate:

  • the relevance of data management best practices to CMDB implementations
  • the innovative approaches to data management used in successful CMDB implementations
