AWS Whitepaper

Change Management

Enterprise architects manage transition architectures. Transition architectures are the incremental releases in production that bring the current state to the target state architecture. The goal of transition architectures is to ensure that the evolving architecture continues to deliver the target business strategy. Therefore, you need to manage changes to the architecture in a cohesive way.

AWS Config is a service that lets you assess, audit, and evaluate the configurations of your AWS resources. AWS Config continuously monitors and records your AWS resource configurations and lets you automate the evaluation of recorded configurations against desired configurations. With AWS Config, you can review changes in configurations and determine your overall compliance against the configurations specified in your internal guidelines. This enables you to simplify compliance auditing, security analysis, change management, and operational troubleshooting.
