Product Description

Configuration Management Standard Requirements

Crucial Requirements:

  1. Are physical configuration assessments conducted to determine the degree of agreement between the current physical configuration and the configuration depicted in the facility documentation?

  2. Are all the anomalies reported during testing adequately resolved (or the appropriate waivers/deviations were obtained and known defects with workarounds are documented in the release notes)?

  3. What percentage of user PCs and servers are included in a centralized software inventory/CMDB (configuration management database); which is populated by a software tracking tool?

  4. Are structures, systems and components within the CM Program tested periodically to determine if they are still capable of meeting design requirements?

  5. A Configuration Management database (cmdb) can contain different configuration items (cis). Which items would not normally be regarded as a ci?

  6. How do the developers know which codeline to check their code into, and when to when to check it in, and what tests to run before check in?

  7. Are your version control and configuration management policies and procedures the same throughout your entire organization and for all your products?

  8. Do you have duplicate named source code items with physically different sources that are related possibly to different customers or release levels?

  9. Can we answer questions like: Are all status reports being produced, including the required details, according to the business request?

  10. Can we answer questions like: Are all configuration items created as requested by the business users, with the proper attributes?

    Statistics according to Glassdoor and Indeed tell these positions receive an average basic pay of $125,000. Daily rates of basic pay are computed by dividing an employee's annual pay by 260 days. The daily salary is then derived by dividing the annual salary of $125,000 by 260 days = a daily rate of $480.

  • Top management consulting firms start at $2,000 a day, with rates typically charged up to 40 hours per week.
