Why Learn Configuration Management?

Small sub-system changes can (and often do) have an impact on the entire system. If these changes are not managed and communicated properly, they can lead to serious problems later on. Configuration Management allows teams to control changes to the system in an orderly and well-documented fashion, while keeping the entire team up-to-date on these changes.
