Recently, EMA completed extensive primary research to gain a better understanding of how IT service catalogs are selected, deployed and utilized in the enterprise.

In the past few years, the meaning of the Configuration Management Database (CMDB) has changed as strategies evolve, adoption accelerates and budgets increase. However, most CMDB deployments still suffer from politics, communication issues and confusion, and many still struggle to demonstrate value to business and IT leaders. During this Webinar, EMA vice president Dennis Drogseth will share key findings from Enterprise Management Associates' new research on how CMDB deployments are evolving in 2008. Some of the key points he will cover include where and why investments are being made; how and to what extent metrics are being applied; recommendations for success; and regrets about what adopters would do differently.

Deploying business applications and vertical industry applications can be complicated and time-consuming. Managing them is even more of a challenge. Recent EMA research indicates that enterprise IT organizations know how to successfully deploy and maintain infrastructure. However, they continue to struggle to effectively deploy and manage the business services and applications that the infrastructure supports. Senior analyst Julie Craig will lead this Webinar, which will share highlights from a new survey of more than 200 IT professionals with application management responsibilities. She will cover strategies for managing enterprise applications; pain points; "most wanted" technology capabilities; and measurements of success in taking on this complex responsibility.
