I have read several case studies on configuration management implementations and all indicate that only about 15% of companies attempting to implement a CMDB have been successful. That's an abysmal percentage for a project that is both expensive and time consuming and therefore unlikely to gain much traction with IT leadership. Can anyone provide real world examples of a system being implemented in a large, IT environment hosting a variety of technologies and supporting many different business units? I have also read numerous articles from Forrester and Gartner and had conversations with consultants from the large consultant shops but they only speak in generalizations. I'm really looking for real world examples of succssful implementation backed with true analysis of benefits realization and cost vs. benefit. Any info you could provide would be greatly appreciated!
How do I go about posting a job on this site. I was referred here by a member who suggested that members would appreciate it. I cannot figure out how to post one though. Any assistance is much apprecaited.

Our VOB is of size size 52GB, 10years old, mounted on Solaris OS and using by 400 Users. From the past One Year, we observed that VOB elements are keep on corrupting with "^D" or "text_file_delta" error. We are unable to do diff with predecessor version, not able to make Builds because of corrupted files. Even we are unable to count Source Lines of Code also. I forgot to mention that, we are using ClearCase ver.6.0.
Last 8 months back, we raised a PMR, IBM resolved some file elements using "checkvob" and by remotely accessing they used some IBM scripts to solve the issue. Finally, by the end of March. We and IBM Technical Support Engineers resolved all corrupted file elements issue. Recently, we observed that 2 (two) of the files got corrupted again and VOB is not in Sync with two of our replicas. Problem started again.
Please let me know, why VOB file elements corrupts often? Is it because of, if any user uses some third party tools for his Coding/Development in VOB? We CMs follow strict polocies, some of the file elements are not even loading into VOB (Snapshot views), saying "size got exceeded". This became a big mess for us. Now, Developers are making Builds by hijacking the files. We know that, this is not a Good Practise. Please someone of you can help us in this regard. PFA, VOB Errors. Thanks in advance!
Please let me know, what exactly is a "Virtual VOB" in ClearCase. How to make it? implement the polocies? Do we require any seperate SW like VMVare to create a Virtual VOB? I am working in a Telecom Based Company and we are about to get a new Project, there our Project Manager requirement is to create a "Virtual VOB" using ClearCase. We will go in details in next month. Before that, I want to know what it is, why it is used for, how to create it. Thanks for all your answers for my Query.
We are currently implementing agile, and have a fully realised development cycle in place. I have now been tasked with implementing a deployment tech stack. We are currently running a Subversion repository, feeding in to a Jenkins / Maven continuous integration platform, and an Artefactory Repository for compiled code. We then have no path out of Artefactory (at the moment, the devs are packaging up complete WARs of the environment and copying manually to the target area). I want to implement a continuous deployment solution, that can be used by developers for small fixes and by tech leads for large releases.
I have looked around but am struggling to find a tool to realise this that will integrate with our current tech (everything seems to want to replace Jenkins etc with their own agent based build / test / artifact solution). Does anyone know of software that will allow me to automate the movement of compiled code from our dev platform to our test environment, then on to prod, setting rules and checks along the way?
Wanted to understand a situtation: My developers checkins code (majorly) into any bug they feel like & mention bug number which they have fixed in CR. I want to bring in strict process of checkin code in bug which they want to send in CR. Is this something unexpected i am asking or difficult or become bottleneck to my developers? Any best practices shared?
Below is my scenrios-
Case 1 - CR has 1 master bug having 5 child bugs, Commited code in some other X bug which is no where linked in these bugs.
Case 2- CR has 1 master bug having 5 child bugs, sending only 3 child bugs at last minute call but need to send half commited files in other 4th Child bug.
Usually we create CR once coding is done & needs to send for Testing but bug is created beforehand. CR is majorly become for documentation /release tracking.
