   CMDB/CFDB

    System Event Orchestration

A Configuration Management Database (CMDB) is a repository of the authorized configuration of the significant components of an IT environment.  Sometimes called Asset or Inventory Management, CMDB stems from ITIL, a  set of best-practices for IT service management that focuses on aligning IT with the needs of the business.  CFEngine Nova uses its dynamic knowledge map and reports as a CMDB.
