Definition and Implementation of the Environment Management Process
The amount of work that is required to promote a set of changes between the different environments of an organization (DEV, QA, PRE, PRO...) requires the availability of resources dedicated exclusively to this task.
Also, if the process is not automated, extra documentation will be generated (service installation manuals, BDD update, rollback, configuration file modification according to the environment ...) subject to errors in both processing and execution, which is difficult to ensure the correctness of an installation/update.
Through this service, MTP normalizes the different environments, standardizes the mechanisms and procedures for the request for the promotion of changes between them, and automates the process. This ensures the validity, quality, safety, and operability of the activities (preproduction, production, development, testing, training, etc.) to be performed to be implemented in the systems environments, to minimize their risk of changing.
This way, the organization may have a set of tools and processes aimed at managing changes in the infrastructure of the different environments in an automated manner, ensuring consistency and parallelism between them.
Among the benefits that this service brings to organizations are:
- Infrastructure management as a code.
- Consultation of the infrastructure and determination of what it has.
- Avoidance of uncontrolled and uncoordinated changes.
- Ability to reproduce complete configurations of a given environment.
- Reduction of downtime.
- Consistency and scalability.
- Early detection of problems in the software development process.
- Traceability in all changes made to the configuration.
- Quick response to updates.
- Visibility over running cloud instances.
