Configuration Management: Supporting Agile Methodology Development

  • Online

In this course, developed by IEEE Educational Activities with the support of IEEE Computer Society, we will cover configuration management practices such as Agile SCM and will explain all those unique requirements of implementing SCM to support agile development. We will see how Configuration Management helps to manage and respond to critical incidents such as the Log4j breach in which IT engineers were scrambling to identify systems that contained the libraries that were known to be vulnerable.

What you will learn:

  • Align configuration management to the desired process
  • Accelerate velocity via automation, integration, and deployment
  • Consider the value of container-based configuration management
  • Examine cloud providers, platforms, tools and managing risks
  • Discuss supplier and acquirer basics from evaluation to agreements

This course is part of the following course program:

Courses included in this program:

Who should attend: Managers, practicing professionals, academics, undergraduates, electrical engineers

Bob Aiello is an internationally established leader in configuration management (CM), application lifecycle management (ALM), and DevOps. He co-authored the 2012 IEEE 828 CM Standard that this course references and is currently the working group chair of the IEEE P828 CM working group, which is engaged in revising the 828 CM Standard. For over 25 years, Aiello has been a successful consultant across many industries, including finance, medicine, and cybersecurity. He has also served as a consultant for engineering companies working in the aerospace, defense and automotive fields. He was the first to identify the need for a DevOps standard in highly regulated industries and was assigned to lead the IEEE working group effort to create the international standard for implementing DevOps known as ISO 32675. The standard was adopted by ISO, IEEE, and the EIA. Aiello has also authored several books on CM, ALM, and DevOps, and in 2021 he was awarded the IEEE Standards Association Medallion for his outstanding achievement in the development and implementation of standards. Today, he is an IEEE liaison to ISO, focusing on DevOps and agile/lean methodology as well as serving on the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) G33 Configuration Management committee.
