Introduction to Configuration Management
Figuring out how all components work together in a complex IT environment can be quite a confusing task in itself– especially for those with limited experience in this field. Our Configuration Management solutions assist you in keeping track of your entire IT system and related assets, and ensure that all of your IT assets are identified, reported, and verified, in order to maintain a healthy and functional IT system.
What is Configuration Management?
A configuration item is one component (or asset) of the broader IT system, and may work in conjunction with other parts of the system. Configuration Management allows for the tracking and monitoring of these items throughout the entire IT system. Our Configuration Management offering provides a formal, centralised process, laying the foundation for all other IT processes, which in turn, enables the delivery of improved services and availability to the business.
Utilising Configuration Management means you can benefit from a high level of data accuracy, with an up-to-date representation of business support systems, in addition to the planned and current state of services and other IT components, as well as their constituent components and their attributes and relationships. Our service enables end-to-end Configuration Management governance, and ensures system health across all of your IT processes.
How Will Configuration Management Benefit My Business?
- The monitoring of data on the health and stability of your systems leads to more reliable service.
- Avoid the unnecessary duplication of systems components and assets.
- The rapid detection and correction of improperly configured network components mitigate IT problems before they arise.
- A single point of reference for all Configuration Management requirements means less time spent on the ongoing servicing of IT needs.
