Transforming Change Management with Virima’s CMDB and ViVID™ Maps

Table of Contents

Change management is a process that ensures the successful introduction of changes across an organization. It ensures that changes are implemented in a controlled and coordinated manner in order to minimize disruption and reduce risks.

In order for IT departments to effectively manage their environments, they need tools that allow them to easily identify what needs updating within their infrastructure as well as track when those updates were made or last modified by whom. 

This information can then be used as part of a change control process so companies can identify any potential issues before they arise – saving time and money in both development costs and troubleshooting down the road!

Change Management Within IT organizations

The main objective of a change management process is to ensure that planned changes are implemented in a controlled and coordinated manner in order to minimize disruption and reduce risks.

The success of the overall IT service continuity plan depends on the effective planning and execution of change activities. Change management is an ongoing process that involves identifying and managing risks associated with changes, including those related to human resources, technology, business processes, and policies.

Change can be positive or negative depending on its nature and context. For example, a new software application may cause you to invest in additional hardware or infrastructure; however, if this investment does not provide any value, then it would be seen as a negative change by your organization (i.e., unnecessary).

Change management involves identifying all changes, prioritizing them based on impact and risk, communicating effectively, planning resources, and testing prior to implementation. Change managers must ensure that the planning process is complete before implementing any change to a system or process.

One of the key elements of change management is communication with all stakeholders involved in the project so they understand what they need to do when implementing a new system or process.

It’s also important for change managers to plan how they will communicate with different stakeholders before starting any project. It is because this will help them identify what information needs to be shared with each group, along with their preferred method of communication.
