The "Cabling and Controls Database" (CCDB) is a central repository where the different teams of ALBA manage the information of installed racks, equipment, cables and connectors, and their connections and technical specifications. ALBA has modernized this web application for sustainability reasons and fit new needs detected throughout the last years of operation in our facility. The application has been linked to Jira to allow tracking problems in specific installed equipment or locations. In addition, it also connects to the ALBA Inventory Pools application, the warehouse management system, where the stock of physical equipment and components are maintained to get information on the life cycle of the different devices. These new features, integrated with proprietary products like Jira and Insight, aim to become ALBA's asset management system. This paper aims to describe the main features of the recent application upgrade, currently in continuous development.
