Get Your ServiceNow CMDB Under Control

Bad Data Causes Expensive Problems:

  • 85% of CMDB projects fail
  • 70% of Digital Transformation initiatives fail
  • 50% of knowledge workers’ wasted time is due to bad data

Digital Ecosystems are Dependent on Reliable and Consistent Business Data 

Daily operational activities require correctly defined and up-to-date service data. Without it, activities such as auto assignments, root cause & impact analysis, service automation, approvals and reporting are prone to failure.

Despite the importance of of correctly defined, quality data, few organizations can confidently say that their CMDB is entirely up to date. Without active maintenance, data will degrade over time.

Data Models are Needed

To get the most out of the Now Platform and use out-of-the-box functionalities, ServiceNow customers need to follow standard data models such as the Common Service Data Model (CSDM) and data needs to be of acceptable quality.

Data Content Manager is a visual tool that covers the entire data management process from data diagrams planning to data audits & remediation. DCM is used to ensure that the agreed data models are being followed and to easily spot data deviations. A typical use-case for DCM is a CSDM implementation.

DCM runs on the ServiceNow® platform.

Why CSDM is important to every ServiceNow customer?

  • ServiceNow product dependency
  • Risk of not achieving full platform value
  • Ability to mature your implementation without costly rework
  • Become part of the successful 15%

Common Service Data Model 

The Common Service Data Model (CSDM) is the best practice for CMDB data modeling and data management by ServiceNow. It’s the backbone for the ServiceNow platform and according to the CSDM white paper version 2.0 “Many ServiceNow Products depend on data defined according to this model.”
