AWS Config

If you have multiple resources in your AWS environment then AWS Config can provide you with audit, governance, and comparison of any changes to your resource configuration over time. You can create alerts to be notified via AWS SNS if any configuration changes, which is very useful for development teams. Governance in an organization, like “Who made the change?”, “From what IP address?” is a very useful audit and operational governance tool.

  • It can help you define rules for provisioning and configuring of your AWS. We use it for this purpose.
  • It maintains configuration history. So you can use the AWS Management Console, API, or CLI to obtain details of past configurations
  • It gives you a configuration snapshot of all of your AWS resources and you can store it in AWS S3.
  • You can integrate it with AWS CloudTrail to correlate configuration changes to particular events in your account.

Cons

  • Ability to zoom in/out for stream-view. We currently have many streams/substreams and unable to view the entire workflow. Zooming in/out would benefit.
  • Being a designer, I use Adobe Flash and SWF files. When updating the SWF files, Accurev does not see these files as being changed and you will be unable to promote. In order to push changes, you must totally rename the SWF file.

  • Dashboarding and graphs should be better and more configurable.
  • Some time the Config Rules are difficult to understand and configure. They could be made easy or have GUI to configure them. I know it is difficult to build but that would be a good win.

I give it this rating because I found an alternate application that is much more cost effective and quicker

Alternatives Considered

In my view, accurev ranks very low compared to other tools I have used. Microsoft TFS is the best in the industry as of today as it's a complete ALM solution. It does code version, bug tracking, user story documentation, and has easy integration with other external tools supporting many languages. So I would definitely recommend TFS to anyone.

I do not know or have used any other product in AWS cloud space that matches what AWS Config provides. We have some custom built monitoring and governance, however that is there because AWS Config does not provide it currently.

Return on Investment

  • We will be moving away from Accurev as it's not meeting our needs.
  • We have been using it for many years and it has supported our needs well for these years . But since our org is growing and the projects getting more complex and team size is increasing, this tool is not working out for us.
  • It's a little simpler to understand than GIT but still the slowness of the tool overall is an issue.

  • A positive is that every organization using a Cloud like AWS needs a feature like AWS Config for managing governance and audit controls.
  • You can assess your overall compliance and risk status from a configuration perspective using pre-built rules. This is very useful for network and cloud management teams.
