Why switch from another CMDB/asset management tool? Copy link to heading Copied! Show

Moving your CMDB into Jira Service Management would:

  • Streamline your work by having all ITSM (requests, incidents, changes, & problems) and CMDB information in one tool
  • Provide more context between assets & CIs and incidents & changes so that your Dev and Ops teams can get to the root of the issue faster and manage risks for more seamless deployments
  • Reduce costs as other CMDB vendors are expensive
  • Increase flexibility to store whatever type of inventory, asset, or record - without the constraints or limits to just IT use cases.
