Value and Benefits of CM2

  • Increased efficiency with a defined configuration process that provides control and improves visibility with dynamic traceability.
  • Cost reduction by having detailed knowledge of all the elements of the configuration which allows for rework to be avoided.
  • Your business will have greater agility while shifting from a corrective action mindset to one that thrives on continual improvement.
  • Efficient and effective operating standards and procedures that transform the legacy business models of the past.
  • Closed-Loop change management reduces the risk, improves communication and shifts the focus from engineering to the enterprise.
  • Faster restoration of your service if a process failure occurs. If you know the required state of the configuration then recovering the working configuration will be much quicker and easier.
