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 of OneCMDB!
