Software Configuration Management vs. Configuration Management

Software configuration management is primarily focused on revision control. This category is part of a broader category called Configuration Management. Configuration Management goes beyond revision control to include capabilities such as monitoring and asset discovery, patch management, software deployment and distribution, and automated administration and maintenance. This broader category has become important with the advent of DevOps which brings development and IT closer together through continuous deployment.
