Is the idea of a Configuration Management Database (CMDB) just a lot of marketing hype, or is this the real deal? IT teams work in very complex environments and most already have asset management systems in place. How is implementing a CMDB any different?
How is a CMDB like a disaster recovery plan? And, how is a CMDB like your personal checkbook? Why should you consider a federated CMDB? Jonathan Markworth of CompuCom Systems helps you understand a CMDB at a very basic level, then takes you on a value journey through implementation and return on investment.
