Business Challenge

Our customer obtains a large IT infrastructure with multiple applications, servers, databases located on premise or on Azure and AWS. It was essential to calculate the TCO of all applications in their existing ServiceNow CMDB and automate discovery of available application services.

To successfully implement CMDB Service Mapping and Change Management, our experts had to handle the following technical challenges:

  • The existing customer’s CMDB relied on manually added, out-of-date, and poor data quality.
  • CMDB records were only horizontally discovered without addressing connections and dependencies between objects.
  • Each application had unique requirements in terms of encryption, authentication/authorization, etc.
