This paper defines the different types of data that are usually stored in a CMDB, from configuration items (CIs) and their relationships to related data, such as change requests and a service impact model. Rather than integrating data stores or putting everything into one central database, this paper sets forth BMC's approach to a CMDB: a federated model that serves as your source of record for CIs but preserves your investment in existing data stores.
