Change management using Automated Server Documentation

We’re going to discuss the importance of working with the right tools to keep track of changes in your infrastructure. Besides, having automated server documentation always makes server monitoring and administration easier.

By keeping track of what’s going on in your infrastructure, you can pinpoint exactly what went wrong in minutes, whereas otherwise it would have taken you hours.
