Why Read This Report

The merits of integrating software change and configuration management (SCCM) are well established. But for many shops, standardizing on a single SCCM solution is more an ideal than a reality. These shops use multiple software configuration management (SCM) tools for different projects, platforms, and technologies, and near-term consolidation simply isn't feasible. Instead of trying to standardize on a single, unified SCCM solution, some of these shops are integrating multiple SCM tools with a single change management tool. This heterogeneous SCM strategy lets them enforce a common process and collect apples-to-apples metrics while permitting developers to use the SCM tool of their choice.
