CMDB World Exclusive - CMDB Roundtable - View Video
Exclusive CMDB Roundtable, chaired by Paul Gostick, he poses some challenging questions to the CMDB panel..

Ensuring consistent availability of IT infrastructure and applications is becoming ever more important, any unexpected downtime can result in real business consequences – financial losses, customer satisfaction issues and damage to reputation.

The Configuration Management Database (CMDB) originates from the IT Infrastructure Library (ITIL). It is a database repository that contains all relevant information about the authorised components of the information systems and the relationships between those components, used to deliver an organisation's IT services. It is generally understood that a good CMDB helps to prevent outages through effective change impact analysis and can reduce Mean Time to Repair (MTTR) using root cause analysis should an outage occur.

But for all the apparent good, CMDBs are an emotive subject and there is much debate as to whether they can be achieved and if so should they be centralized or federated?

To get the latest answers and insights and bring together all sides of the debate, ITP teamed up with the itSMF UK to bring you this exclusive CMDB video roundtable with the leading experts from vendors, analysts, government, professional bodies, training organisations and end users including the OGC, NHS, itSMF, Bloor, Gartner, HP, IBM, CA and many more...
