Accelerate Your CSDM Implementation
What is CSDM?
The Common Service Data Model (CSDM) is the ServiceNow framework and prescriptive guidance for building out your Configuration Management Database (CMDB). CSDM identifies where to place service and application-related data within the CMDB.
CSDM is not an application or code you can install, nor is it a set of reports or a one-size-fits all guide. It is a framework and to implement it you need to adapt it into your environment and data models.
The is no need to purchase new modules or licenses to be able to use CSDM. ServiceNow will provide all CSDM-related objectives and CMDB core tables as part of the out-of-the-box CMDB, regardless of licensing.
Why Implement CSDM?
Current and future products from ServiceNow that use CMDB may require data prescribed by CSDM. In fact, ServiceNow quite clearly states that ServiceNow products are dependent on this data model.
Implementing CSDM will ensure easier upgrades and the ability to take advantage of new ServiceNow products. Furthermore, adherence to CSDM will also provide more accurate reporting and less overhead when maintaining services.
If implemented well, CSDM can be a major step in aligning IT and business strategy and lifting the maturity level of your Service Management operations. Overall, implementing CSDM will improve your Return on Investment to the ServiceNow platform.
