 Configuration Management Best Practices is a resource for all persons connected with CM: from Chief Tech officers  to project managers and software engineers.  Analysts, testers, and compliance professionals will all find this book a great help. Few books on software configuration management emphasize the role of people in an organizational network and the SCM process. This book has the right blend and that adds to its luster. It also touches on work place psychology.

Using CM best practices, IT professionals can systematically manage change, avoiding unexpected problems introduced by changes to hardware, software, or networks. Now, today’s best CM practices have been gathered in one volume by the writers.
