    I still have 2 more days of the class left, but so far the big 3 hit-home things for me was:
       1. Federation!- Don't store any data in the CMDB that is not needed.
       2. CI's - A great way to decide if its a CI to store in CMDB:     Is it Unique? Does it provide a Service? Is it Manageable?Is it changeable?
       3. AI - What a powerful tool.With AI wizard you can seriously set up a job to import into your CMDB in the matter of a few minutes. Looking further into Pentaho Spoon, there are endless possibilities to manipulate, enrich, and upload your data to/from the CMDB any many other data sources.
