Change management is the formal review process that ensures that all changes made to a system or application receives formal review and approval. Change management reduces impacts from proposed changes that could possibly have interruptions to the services provided. Recording all changes for applications will be accomplished by a configuration management policy. The configuration management policy will capture the actual changes to software code and anything else affected by the change.
