Introduction

The following is a description of the Configuration Management Point in the Configuration Management and System Management. A Configuration Management Point is a point from which the configuration and lifecycle on packages, units, groups and the management server are managed.
 
Our recommendations are to create a development, test and production environment by creating a Configuration Management Point for each of these.
Each Configuration Management Point contains software, units like pc´s and printers, groups like departments, business areas or countries and also a management server.
The structure of this is based on the infrastructure, and must reflect this.
 
Every item will be created on the Development Configuration Management Point, and promoted to the test, for test, and afterward released for production.
Every step in a controlled and managed environment throughout the lifecycle of software deployment.
 
More structured environments can be created to support desktop outsourcing if you support several companies.
