Configuration Item Taxonomy

English Abstract: 

"The following represents a linear or flat taxonomy of the different Configuration Item types that are tracked and managed as part of the Configuration Management discipline and its related set of processes. Such Items may be composed of other smaller Configuration Items that they depend on and may also be used as dependencies for the construction of greater Items. In other words, some may be composed of pieces and/or act as pieces for others. Tracking of such dependencies is critical for most IT organizations and, as a result, some of the Configuration Items may be tracked in dedicated domain based systems and others may be tracked in formal Configuration Management Databases (CMDBs)."
