Configuration management is a critical process responsible for identifying, controlling, and tracking all versions of hardware, software, documentation, processes, procedures, and all other inanimate components of the information technology (IT) organization. The goal of configuration management is to ensure that only authorized components, referred to as configuration items (CIs), are used in the IT environment and that all changes to CIs are recorded and tracked throughout the component’s life cycle.
