We ensure your HR applications(apps) are optimally configured
When it comes to HR software – in particular, cloud software as a service (SaaS) – technology moves fast. And to make the most of your system, avoid downtime and stay secure, you need to keep up with the changes.
You need to not only manage the technical changes but be able to train your people. This is to adapt to software updates and provide support to minimize disruption.
What is configuration management?
Configuration management includes technical changes, fixes and upgrades to a software system that keep it working properly. It makes sure you’re getting the most of it.
It’s important to track configuration. Keeping a version history of all changes to your system means, if something goes wrong, you can see when any changes happened and fix them or restore the system to its last working point.
Key benefits of configuration management:
Configuration management is about tracking any changes to your software.
This gives you visibility over the complete history of your system.
So, when you find a fault, you can instantly see when it was last working properly and when the changes happened.
Through visibility and tracking of the changes of your system you can then go back and make any changes. Or simply restore the software to its last version.
Configuration management encourages taking a proactive approach to the state of your HR systems, instead of reacting once something’s gone wrong.
Traceability of all changes to your systems enables you to go in and fix any problems right away – avoiding the cost of downtime and repairs that could negatively impact performance.
It also means systems are always up to date, so you’re protected against the latest costly risks.
Taking a proactive approach to application maintenance means it’s easier to adapt when something goes wrong.
Tracking changes and keeping your systems up to date with the latest upgrades means you’re best placed to react to any changes or faults, easily restoring the system or reacting to the latest risks.
