OneCMDB Version 2 is available
Version 2.0 of OneCMDB is now available for download. It is released as beta version and we aim to proceed with a production version in the very near future. The goal with the development of this version has
been to improve the back-end CMDB engine in several areas and to design a new Graphical User Interface that is easy to use and customize and
also suitable for a multi-user environment. We think we have achieved all this, and a lot more!
Some of the new features:
- Multi-user support
- New graphical user interface, the OneCMDB Desktop
- Role Based Access Control (RBAC)
- Improved presentation of CMDB content, including dynamic graphs
- Custom view and report generator
- Powerful management of external datasources like SQL databases, CSV files, etc.

New OneCMDB version released
Lokomo Systems has today released a new OneCMDB package, version 1.4.0 (beta). The new software release contains an improved OneCMDB engine
and several brand new OneCMDB applications covering areas like Incident, Problem and Asset Management.
The applications are small and minimalistic and the idea is that they shall serve as examples of what can be achieved with OneCMDB. As
you will see, it is not a fullblown user application suite... The applications interact with the OneCMDB engine through the OneCMDB Web
Services interface and they are based on a new GUI framework, which is now included in the OneCMDB distribution.
The Incident and Problem Management applications provide a very basic way to register and manage incidents and problems. The asset
management application simply presents Configuration Items and all related data in a table. It can also present each Configuration Item´s
references and dependencies to other CI:s.
A new Model Designer tool built with the new GUI is also included in this OneCMDB release. This distribution also includes an
enhanced default CMDB model that includes support for the Incident and Problem applications as well as more types of references between CI:s.
The new software is currently released as a beta-version and we like to encourage you to give us feedback for the continued development
Two OneCMDB Example Applications released
Lokomo Systems has released two Example Applications, Inventory and Availability,
which are integrated with OneCMDB, an Open Source Configuration Management Database.
The Inventory Example Application is a small application, which lists Servers
and selected related information. The Availability Example Application measures
server uptime and calculates Server Availability in percent. Both Example Applications
can be tested and demonstrated online on the www.onecmdb.org website. The purpose of
the Example Applications is to give users and developers an idea of how different kind
of applications can be realized using OneCMDB.
Lokomo Systems launches Open Source CMDB
Lokomo Systems today launced an Open Source Initiative,
OneCMDB is Configuration Management Database,
initially aimed at small and medium sized businesses.
Lokomo OneCMDB is believed to be the first Configuration
Management Database software released as Open Source.
The product can be used either as a stand-alone CMDB to keep track of software
and hardware assets and their relations. Thanks to its open API:s
it is also a powerful Configuration Management engine for other
Service Management software. OneCMDB is easy to install and populate
with data. A user-specified (XML-based) datamodel defines how Configuration
Items are structured in the database. The datamodel can be changed and
expanded without programming.
