CMDB are the initials for Configuration Management Data Base. The CMDB is a repository of information related to all the components of an information system.
The SysAid CMDB helps your organization understand the relationships between components and track their configuration.
As long as you maintain and keep your CMDB up-to-date, you will be able to enjoy the associations SysAid creates between your various configuration items. Here are a few examples for configuration items you can set and manage in your CMDB:
- Hardware (including network components where relevant)
- System software, including operating systems
- Business systems - custom-built applications
- Software packages
- Database products
- Physical databases
- Configuration baselines
- Policies (Backup, Security etc.)
- Configuration documentation, e.g. system and interface specifications, licenses, maintenance agreements, SLAs, decommissioning statement
- Other resources e.g. Users, suppliers, contracts
- Other documentation e.g. IT business processes, workflow, procedures
