Uniting the Governance of a Single System of Record with Powerful Configuration Automation Tools.
Enterprises that have implemented strong change and configuration management processes typically have the highest levels of availability. The last mile for these processes is the actual configuration of the infrastructure itself. Yet infrastructure configuration has largely remained a manual, tedious, and error‑prone activity. Legacy software products have tried to address this challenge using an approach grounded in the enforcement of static policies, but they lack the operational agility required to manage a dynamic infrastructure. A new breed of infrastructure automation products has emerged that transforms infrastructure into IT‑accessible code, but they lack the level of transparency and governance required by modern enterprise IT.
