IBM and CA are apparently showing an interoperability demo between their respective CMDBs at itSMF Fusion this week. I am not there to see it, but they describe it (it’s a corporate merger scenario) in this press release. It is presumably based on the version of the specification that was submitted to DMTF.
More information about CMDBf, along with another demonstration, will be available in a couple of months for ManDevCon attendees. Three sessions are on the agenda, all in a row and in the same room (so make sure to get a good seat, i.e. one close to a power plug, from the start):
- CMDB Federation Overview (Vince Kowalski, BMC and Marv Waschke, CA)
- CMDB Federation Technical Description (Mark Johnson, IBM and Marv Waschke, CA)
- CMDB Federation Demonstration (Mark Johnson, IBM and Dave Snelling, Fujitsu)
