Configuration, change management emphasized to eliminate network errors

The emerging network needs of enterprise IT departments emphasize the advantage of introducing a number of processes to maintain efficiency

The emerging network needs of enterprise IT departments emphasize the advantage of introducing a number of processes to maintain efficiency. Configuration management, according to a recent TMCnet report, is one of the main components of consistent network productivity.

The report highlights how traffic increases, failed network elements and configuration problems facing businesses looking to update their IT. Indeed, the report also cites research that found 80 percent of production outages are attributed to manual process failure, as well as analysts' previous estimates that 50 to 90 percent of network downtime is due to misconfiguration.

In response, the article emphasizes the importance of integrating configuration management and change management solutions to help streamline network and IT operations. Consulting an ITIL expert for configuration management and change management solutions gives businesses an advantage by enabling employees to focus on their own company goals, while also avoiding any errors from manual integration. In addition, automated configuration management and change management ensure compliance with industry regulations, such as the Sarbanes-Oxley Act.

Change management has been emphasized by IT experts for a number of different operations. As businesses face new technology and the IT challenges that come with them, successfully integrating configuration management and change management solutions can avoid any employee errors while maintaining productivity in other business areas.
