How do you create a CMDB in the real world?

Presented by

Peter Hubbard, Principal ITSM Consultant at Pink Elephant EMEA

About this talk

A CMDB implementation is one of the trickiest undertakings any ITSM programme can undertake. The difficulties in creating a toolset capable of linking literately hundreds of thousands of interconnected bits of data together in a meaningful manner, while 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 approach Pink Elephant has mapped out to create a CMDB in the real world. He will show the critical importance of the scoping session and knowing what you want the CMDB to achieve and how to turn that into concrete actions to map and create your CMDB. 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?'
