CMDB Enrichment and Hygiene

Deploying and effectively utilizing a Configuration Management Database (CMDB) comes with many challenges, particularly in the areas of data accuracy and hygiene. Managing the complexities of asset discovery, data synchronization and integration with multiple systems can be a daunting task, especially when many of these processes are manual and labor intensive. This can result in discrepancies between the CMDB and actual infrastructure, impacting the overall effectiveness of IT and security operations.

Accuracy and Completeness

75% of CMDB initiatives fail due to inadequate focus on data accuracy, process standardization, and staff skills.

Synchronization and Integration

51% of IT professionals say that data synchronization across systems and applications is a significant challenge.

Implementation Complexity

54% of organizations find the implementation of CMDB tools complex, labor intensive and time consuming.

Why is CMDB Enrichment Important?

As IT environments become more complex with growing numbers and variety of endpoints, users, software/SaaS and cloud instances, it becomes more difficult to maintain good CMDB hygiene. Multiple data sources cause duplication, inconsistencies, and data inaccuracy. Missing configuration items (CIs), which can include valuable asset information such as ownership, warranty, location and more, lessen the value of the CMDB as an investigation, analysis and decision making tool.

Often IT teams resort to manually pulling information from multiple sources, aggregating it painstakingly via spreadsheets, and contacting people to reconcile duplicate entries or populate gaps. Not surprisingly, the accuracy of most CMDBs hovers around 60% and only 25% of organizations are receiving meaningful value from their CMDB investments.
