Integrate your ITSM tool with ITAM and SAM functionality from Certero

A fundamental requirement of an effective CMDB or ITSM solution is the ability to populate it with comprehensive IT asset information from across the network.  Yet the majority of CMDB implementations fail and service desk operatives are often operating blind when it comes to the assets being used by staff. 

Certero makes populating the CMDB with a wide range of Configuration Items (hardware and software assets) and providing help desk staff with access to full information on users’ IT equipment and usage a reality.
