Customize Turbonomic reports with external data

I would like the ability to have the Turbonomic reports I generate use external data. For example, it would be nice if I could have data from our CMDB integrated into the reports I get from Turbo. I’d like to configure a connection from Turbo to our CMDB so that data can be freshly imported when I run the report. If that’s not possible, I would at least like some way I can feed that data to Turbo like in an Excel spreadsheet or something so it can be used in my reports from Turbonomic.

    Our CMDB (Configuration Management Database) has all of the info about all of our VMs such as:
    What App they belong to
    Who owns that App
    The lifecycle of the VM (Prod, Dev, etc)

    Having this information in the Turbonomic reports would make them much much more useful.

    I'd like to understand the ask here - what does "CMDB integrated into the reports" mean? Need more context
