Configuration Management is used to handle the updates systematically and maintain its integrity. With configuration management, all the updates made are maintained and tracked in the system and make sure that the system is up to date. Configuration Management helps organizations in the following ways:
1) It helps to determine what changes are required with the changes in user requirements.
2) Reverting back to the previous version, in case the updated version is faulty.
3) It replaces the incorrect component because the user cannot find out this accurately.
4) It updates an implementation because of changes in the requirements since the previous implementation.
