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.
