Why Read This Report

The age of the customer demands operational excellence within the technology organization. A sound configuration management practice is essential to ensure always-on, high-quality services, yet configuration management has been troublesome and confusing for many infrastructure and operations (I&O) professionals. Definitions and standards haven't aligned well to everyday practice, and the term means different things to different audiences. I&O pros need a comprehensive, unified approach and an up-to-date awareness of recent development and operations (DevOps) and infrastructure-as-code trends.
