IT Service Asset & Configuration Management Masterclass Training Course

How To Get Started With Service Asset & Configuration Management


Most organisations are unlikely to have a Configuration Management Database (CMDB) in place let alone a Configuration Management System (CMS). Many organisations struggle with the sheer complexity and never get started, others start and then fail to maintain accuracy so people lose confidence. In this highly intensive and interactive one day Masterclass we will discuss everything to do with Service Asset and Configuration Management from design and development through to implementation and improvement.

The Masterclass will be flexible for different levels of expertise, from novice practitioners up to experienced specialists.

During this course, we will take a closer look at:

  • What is Service Asset and Configuration Management
  • What are the benefits of having a CMDB / CMS
  • The Service Asset and Configuration Management process down to activity level
  • The importance of planning and design
  • Process interfaces and dependencies, especially Change Management
  • Techniques and methods we can use to manage the CMDB
  • Roles and responsibilities
  • The technology
  • An implementation roadmap

  • Keeping the CMDB up to date
  • Verification and Audit

You may only get one attempt at getting Service Asset and Configuration Management right, so it is vitally important that you fully understand your organisational requirements for holding configuration data, the benefits it will bring to your organisation, and how to create and maintain a CMDB/CMS and then maintain it long term.

If you attend no other training course this year you must attend this one. A CMDB should be the foundation on which you build all of your other service management processes, not a bolt-on or an afterthought.
