  2. Does the tool integrate with a Configuration Management System (and CMDBs) to gather, validate and graphically illustrate required information for release builds and deployment activities?

  3. How does the content of software build need to be supervised and what kind of reports are needed for the development projects management and for the rest of the development organization?

  4. What is the one piece of management technology within Windows that allows you to centrally manage diverse elements as security configuration, desktop lockdown, and software deployment?

  5. What are the options for a small to medium size IT organization that wants to enhance Configuration Management System to drive better service delivery, and have budget restraints?

  6. Does software management determine if the newly deployed supervisor engine software or module software is compatible with the module types (or module hardware versions)?

  7. Does software management check to see that the newly deployed supervisor software or module software is compatible with the module types (or module hardware versions)?

  8. Has the system product baseline been established and documented to enable hardware fabrication and software coding to proceed with proper configuration management?
