ServiceNow CMDB vRA Module

vRealize Automation extensibility module

Overview

The SovLabs ServiceNow CMDB module for vRealize Automation is the first of its kind, designed for organizations who are using vRealize Automation as the primary service catalog for IT-as-a-Service (ITaaS) deployments and are looking to fully automate population of data into the ServiceNow CMDB without any custom coding and have limited or extensive ServiceNow experience, regardless of CMDB schema customization.
The SovLabs ServiceNow CMDB vRA module is compatible with the VMware community ITSM plug-in, enhancing and extending CMDB mapping capabilities, increasing performance, flexibility and control. The SovLabs CMDB vRA module is also compatible with the ServiceNow Discovery feature, which helps to avoid data duplication scenarios between the two tools.
