As IT infrastructures continue to expand configuration management has become one of the most critical components of day to day IT operations. Put simply, failure to effectively control application and system architecture erodes the value of technology investments. A feature set within the Oracle Configuration Management Pack is the Application Configuration Console. Application Configuration Console is designed for the specific needs of IT infrastructure teams within large enterprises who require a comprehensive solution for managing the application infrastructure underlying their mission-critical applications ? the multi-tiered, distributed architecture that includes application servers, Web servers, databases and middleware. This environment typically includes tens of thousands of configuration properties that need to be set, tuned and controlled for the infrastructure to work reliably across all environments, geographies and software assets.
