Learn how establishing a change policy that enforces all changes are auditable and authorized, and all unauthorized changes are investigated, can enable IT organizations to reach compliance, security, and availability goals.

Every IT service depends on an integrated "stack" of systems such as applications, databases, middleware, directory services, operating systems and networks. This interconnectedness means even a small change can affect the entire stack, interrupt service, introduce vulnerabilities, and impact every part of a business operation. Change must be controlled to mitigate risks and improve operational efficiency. This will build an effective change management process, fostering a culture of accountability and consequence to support a change policy.
