The foundation of a layered approach to security for both core and edge is configuration management. For a long time now we have seen other IT darlings like security and process automation eat up any budget not consumed by your ERP project. I’d argue that you can’t really accomplish any of your organizational goals for IT operations without a systems management infrastructure that is reliable, relevant and accessible.

Whether it’s knowing where your assets are being used (and by whom) or aggregating event data for your info management solution – ITMS probably has some tricks you haven’t seen.
