CMDB Implementation is one of the most complicated of any ITSM programmes an organisation can undertake. The difficulties in creating a toolset, capable of linking hundreds of thousands of interconnected bits of data together in a meaningful manner while also supporting a highly fluid environment with dozens of changes each week, are formidable indeed.
Join Peter Hubbard, Principal ITSM Consultant at Pink Elephant EMEA, as he discusses the Pink Elephant approach to create a CMDB in the real world. He will demonstrate the critical importance of the scoping session and understanding the organisations requirements to ensure the CMDB supports the business. Peter will then show you how to turn those requirements into concrete actions to map and create your CMDB.
Faisal Usmani, Business Development and Strategy Lead for Comms at Cyient EMEA, will build on Peter’s theme; detailing how an effective CMDB implementation forms the basis for ITSM solutions. He will cite a case study that shows how this translates into a real world operational scenario that utilises actionable dashboards and provide valuable insights into your service performance at different levels within your organisation.
At the end of the session you should know the importance of being able to ask your ITSM organisation ‘For our CMDB, do we need a battle tank or body armour?’’
