ChangeGear Change Manager is engineered to provide a consolidated change repository that makes it easy to capture enterprise change information replacing spreadsheets, email systems, and other various manual methods used today. With an easy-to-use interface and advanced features, ChangeGear helps organizations automate change management processes across the enterprise. Its multi-modal support simplifies the adoption of IT controls such as ITIL, while providing streamlined workflows to support a fast-paced agile environment.
In order to strengthen the collaboration between Development and Operations in an organization, change management provides the needed central repository of information that is related to all changes to establish metrics, manage risk, and achieve compliance in a fast paced environment. As the quantity and velocity of changes increase, visibility becomes a major focus. “We address this need by utilizing ChangeGear as a repository for all IT changes or a ‘single point of change truth,’ ” asserts Sun. “Further, the centralized dashboard in the solution allows authorized stakeholders to monitor IT changes and measure DevOps metrics across the whole application lifecycle, from code changes to releases into production.”
The company CEO foresees that in order to support this new world of business agility, organizations must implement stronger change management processes to balance the rapid pace of IT changes with the need to manage risk and compliance. Also, change management automation fosters better collaboration between development and operations, helping to achieve the promise of DevOps in this new world of continuous delivery.
