SACM and CMS help an enterprise implement an overall strategy that aligns business and IT services accurately, with a minimum of resource investment, but to achieve those goals, a range of data sources must be integrated.

The CMDBf standard provides a foundation for consistent, vendor-neutral implementation of IT integration.
