7 CMDB myths you can forget in future

"A CMDB? We tried that. It didn't work!"
If the CMDB project is not treated as a project, the CMDB is doomed to fail from the start. The impression: building a CMDB is impossible. We show you how to make the benefits for your entire company visible to everyone. New motivation for the project is guaranteed.

"A CMDB cannot be kept up to date!"
It's always a question of preparation. Create a plan for the right data, priorities and responsibilities with numerous expert tips. You will see: An up-to-date CMDB is not magic.

"It all just costs time and money".
True! First of all, a CMDB means additional effort. But see for yourself why it's worth it and what potential savings await your company.

"All data must be in the CMDB!"
Here, too, there are several possibilities. Find your "point of truth" with our suggestions - the right mix of different data sources for your company.

"We have a discovery. That's enough for documentation."
This does indeed sound tempting. However, it will also lead to big problems. Would you like to know why Discovery does not replace a CMDB? And why discovery and IT documentation complement each other perfectly. You will find the answers in the e-book.

"The trainee can do the documentation. That's quite enough."
You can probably already guess that this is not the best solution. Our e-book gives an overview of the necessary roles and responsibilities in a CMDB project.

"Building a CMDB? We can do that alongside."
At the latest, once the project has failed, it is realised: It does not work "on the side". It is a project. A structured approach is important. We explain what you should pay attention to.
