The Common Data Model (CDM) is an information model that provides consistent definitions for managed resources, business systems and processes, and other data, and the relationships between those elements. CDM is based on the unified modeling language (UML). This IBM® Redpaper presents a set of example templates and scenarios that help users learn and apply the basics of the Common Data Model. Each scenario identifies the CDM classes that are used and defines the important relationships among these classes.
This Redpaper can serve as a reference for IT specialists implementing the Common Data Model as part of a Tivoli® Systems Management Solution.
