Today I like post a short reference about CMDB, this concept is used in many organizations and I think knows it can help. A configuration management database (CMDB) is a repository that acts as data warehouse for information technology installations.
The Information Technology Infrastructure Library (ITIL) framework, describes the use of CMDBs as part of infrastructure operations and support. In the ITIL context, a CMDB represents the authorized configuration of the significant components of the IT environment.
CMDB basically is a database or repository which includes all systems, software and theirs configurations. CMDB helps an organization understand the relationships between the components of a system and track their configurations.
