Hi Rich: We welcome the feedback: it’s a critical part in the lifecycle of innovation. myCMDB is an application that sits on top of an existing CMDB – be that ours or a competitor’s – and aims to help solve two key barriers to effective deployments: data accuracy and usability. We kicked of our early evaluation program yesterday and are keeping people up to date on our blog: www.wearebsm.com.
