No matter how advanced an enterprise is, it can still be affected by change-driven issues.

This is clear by the weekly headlines in the news of IT Outages, like "Instagram and Facebook down: Users suffer issues days after major outage" or "System outage grounds United Airlines flights".

In fact, according to Gartner, 85% of IT issues are caused by change.

We believe the problem is that IT is flying blind when it comes to the actual changes.

Planned vs. Actual Change - What’s the Difference?

When we’re talking about actual changes, we’re not talking about change requests or deployment artifacts, but actual modifications of configuration parameters, data fields, and application files, resulting from planned or unplanned deployments executed manually or automatically.

For any organization, IT issues resulting in computer outages, failed regulatory audits and security breaches have a significant impact on reputation, revenues, and operational costs.

So how can we stop IT issues and protect system stability, compliance, and security?
