Evergreen Systems Announces Release of Business Case for Change and Configuration Management and the CMDB

STERLING, VA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- 07/23/07 -- Evergreen Systems today announced release of its newest white paper on developing the business case for Change and Configuration management and the CMDB (http://www.evergreensys.com/services/consulting/cmdb/). This ITIL best practice tool makes a strong case for Configuration Management and the CMDB as the only real solution for controlling Change in high volume Change-transaction enterprises.

This comprehensive paper bases the case for Configuration Management and the development of a CMDB on enterprises with fragmented and multi-functional IT infrastructures where IT 'sprawl' has degraded overall IT efficiency and control. This tool can be downloaded at:


Development of the CMDB strategy is covered with emphasis on establishing objectives for the CMDB, benchmarking the organization's CMDB 'maturity,' documenting CMDB business drivers and 'modeling' your CMDB against the desired 'end state.' A strategy for CMDB deployment is developed, the goal of which is to identify and define Configuration Items (CIs) and their relationships, record and report the status of CIs and their related Incidents, Problems and Request for Change (RFC) and verify the completeness and correctness of CIs.

Tools for gathering data for the development of metrics and ROI for this best practice CMDB/Configuration/Change Management case are provided, including:

--  Business process re-engineering
--  Change Management lifecycle improvements
--  Change management approval board activities
--  Change and Configuration management executions
--  Metrics to support and make the case for improved Change and
    Configuration management and the CMDB

A detailed outline is provided for developing the ITIL best practice business case including:

--  Change Management as a Basis for the CMDB
--  Today's Market Value of the CMDB
--  Business Drivers of the CMDB
--  Strategy for the CMDB
--  Business Value of the CMDB
--  Business Case for a CMDB

Appendices provide details on CMDB resource requirements, 'best-of-breed' vendors and potential pitfalls associated with CMDB development.

Additional resources on the implementation of an effective CMDB is also available at:


Leaders in insurance, finance, healthcare and retail rely on Evergreen to address today's major business challenges, including making best practices in ITIL, ITAM and ITSM operable; understanding and organizing IT assets for better planning and execution; developing automated, streamlined compliance processes; and maximizing benefit through Change, Configuration and Asset Management.
