Abbreviated as CMDB, in ITIL terminology the configuration management database is a database that contains all relevant information about each configuration item (CI) including the CI location, status, and also its interconnectivity with other configuration items. The CMDB is also used to consolidate disparate data sets and be a current and accurate source of information about data within an organizations’ IT environment.
