Configuration management is an integrated system which is used to control and track design changes, to monitor how product configuration advances during the product lifecycle. In this process, synchronization between product definition and content is maintained to ensure that all related parties have the same understanding of what is being designed, verified, released, purchased, built, sold, and serviced. Configuration management is implemented either through a standalone solution or as a part of managed services.
