Inventory & CMDB

Tools and applications | Inventory & CMDB
A configuration management database (CMDB) is a database that acts as a data warehouse for storing a range of relevant information about hardware and software assets (commonly referred to as configuration items (CI)) in an organisation, as well as the relationships between them. The repository provides a means of understanding the collection of critical assets and their relationships, such as information systems, upstream sources or dependencies of assets, and the downstream targets of assets.
