IT Service Management


Proper and efficient configuration management significantly reduces the risks associated with IT management. A dynamic cloud-based environment that enables flexible scaling, deployment and decommissioning without operator intervention, has necessitated a fundamental change in configuration management implementation. Along with the introduction of agile methodologies, especially the DevOps approach, it has adopted the standard approach of managing infrastructure as a source code. In this lecture we will explain how this approach meets the requirements of configuration management, what its main advantages and risks are, and we will introduce some other areas where configuration as a code can be successfully used.
