Configuration Management is at the heart of the IT Infrastructure Library (ITIL®) and forms the foundation for Business Service Management (BSM). In fact, it is safe to say that neither the ITIL IT Service Management (ITSM) processes nor the BSM functions that leverage ITSM can be efficiently carried out without accurate configuration and dependency information.

"Unauthorized software, painful software license compliance audits, long fulfillment times, limited visibility, unaccountability... if these issues sound familiar, you are not alone. These are real challenges faced by many IT organizations - with serious consequences if not properly addressed.
During our Software Asset Management webinar you will learn how having asset, configuration and other service management processes together in one system of record provides the control and visibility you need to overcome these challenges."
As the networks become ever more essential to business processes, they are also increasing rapidly in size and complexity. Many factors can affect network availability and performance—increasing traffic, configuration problems, failed network elements, changes, and more. Since not all of these problems are hard failures, managing the network to detect and correct business-impacting problems requires new tools, strategies, and initiatives. To deliver the availability and performance business demands, network management teams need to optimize fault management and ensure availability, unify fault and performance management, automate change and configuration management to ensure compliance, and automate IT processes. This integrated approach is called Automated Network Management (ANM).

With A&D products containing tens of thousands of parts, and potentially millions of lines of software code–produced by hundreds of companies dispersed across the globe, Aerospace & Defense organizations understand the fundamental value and dire need for robust Change & Configuration Management (CM) processes. But it’s not just the number of parts, lines of code, or partners driving the need for better processes. The complexity of products and development processes, as well as the globalization of product development, are all contributing to an environment that is becoming more difficult to manage with each new program or project.
This whitepaper describes how NETCONF and YANG can help drastically simplify network configuration management. The IETF has recently standardized the NETCONF configuration management protocol and is currently in the process of standardizing a NETCONF-oriented data modeling language called YANG. These two new technologies promise to drastically simplify network configuration management.
