The features of the product, its open source license and the positive feedback received by University of Bologna that already used it for a long time, led to the choice of CMDBuild.

The start-up of the system was carried out by a group of technicians from the University of Parma, consisting of Riccardo Cappone, Michele Cavazzoni, Michele Zenna and Mario Bozzetti, supported by Tecnoteca's specialists.

The configuration activities concerned the initial installation, some data model extensions, the loading of existing data files, the activation of the VMware connector, the implementation of a new custom connector with the SANET Network Monitoring Tool already in use.
