I just topped 25,000 cumulative hits today, and the one year anniversary a few days back. Thanks for all of your interest. That's an average of 500 hits a week, not bad for an unsponsored, part-time steam outlet.

The ITIL concept of the Configuration Management Database has provoked great confusion in enterprise IT circles. Research firms are weighing in, the trade press is trying to make sense of it, and the vendors are tripping over each other in their haste to brand whatever data stores they have as “CMDBs.”

I attended the IT Service Management Forum USA Conference & Expo 2004 in Long Beach, California last week, taking in three full days of conference sessions, vendor presentations, and keynotes. It was a good conference; interesting presentations and lots of energy. IT Service Management, and the ITSMF as an organization, are evolving quickly and the sense of momentum was palpable.
