Turnkey Integration Services : Configuration Management
System Configuration Management:
Electronic component manufacturers regularly switch hardware revisions and firmware in the middle of a production run. On the surface this doesn't sound like a huge issue, but it can be a nightmare for technicians, who end up with different computers in the exact same chassis having the same specifications. Worse yet, it can result in a near-impossible situation when the customer tries to upgrade 1,000 systems with new software only to find that systems with different components behave and perform differently.
The problem is exacerbated when it comes to BIOS settings and other firmware upgrades. OS release levels, software patches, integration testing (making sure new hardware works with the old/new software and vice versa) are additional reasons why our Configuration Management Program becomes mandatory for any project where large numbers of computer systems are expected to perform identically throughout their product life cycles.
Iron’s advanced Test Plan and Configuration Management Program provides comprehensive management and version controls to track and manage changes to hardware, software, firmware and documentation throughout the computers systems entire product life cycle. Thus systems performance remains predictable and uninterrupted even during periods of hardware and software upgrades.
