NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - June 12, 2007) - GridApp Systems, Inc. (, the leading provider of database automation software and solutions, today announced that it will host a Webinar on Tuesday, June 26 at 1:00 p.m. EDT (10:00 a.m. PDT) entitled, "To CMDB or Not to CMDB?". Join Matthew Zito, chief scientist of GridApp Systems, for this complimentary Webinar that explains how enterprises can determine what type of CMDB strategy is the best fit for their organizations, and how database automation provides a foundation for larger CMDB initiatives.

Configuration Management Databases (CMDBs) are not exactly groundbreaking news, but unfortunately, there is still widespread confusion and debate when it comes to putting the concept of a CMDB into practice. The questions run the gamut from what CMDBs should be, how to build and maintain them, to the debate of whether centralized configuration management is better than distributed or vice versa.

This Webinar highlights how your organization can tackle CMDB at the database level, building the foundation for a federated CMDB strategy while providing heightened control and efficiency across your database infrastructure. Matthew Zito will examine how this approach can deliver significant benefits for end-to-end IT service management, enabling teams to focus on more revenue-enhancing activities.

Webinar participants will gain insight about:

--  CMDB at the database level.
--  How enhanced configuration management can prevent downtime, save on
    resources and improve security.
--  A "single source of truth" leveraged across multiple organizations for
    managing change and managing inventory with benefits for audit and
--  How database configuration can be part of a larger, federated CMDB
    strategy for your enterprise.
