Has anyone used the data in SCOM to populate their CMDB – preferably in ServiceNow? Any advice, tips, greatly appreciated.
Should SCOM be the source for the CMDB, or should CfgMgr? I would think that SCOM data would only be useful for Operations.
Full disclosure – we haven’t integrated yet, but our plan is to use CfgMgr for the SN CMDB and use SCOM for “alerts and Operational Intelligence raw data” – according to SN’s propaganda.
It would seem to me that SCCM would be a better source for your CMDB since SCCM can automatically update it’s data (software inventory) while SCOM is only as good as what you put in it. It’s a constant challenge keeping distributed applications current in SCOM as environments change. But perhaps if you have rock-solid business processes in place to keep all of that current then this isn’t an issue for you….
