Today, AWS announces Change Manager, a new change management feature of AWS Systems Manager. Change Manager simplifies the way you can request, approve, implement, and report on operational changes to your application configuration and infrastructure on AWS and on-premises. With Change Manager, you can use built-in change management best practices based on Amazon’s 20+ years of operational experience to more safely make operational changes.
With Change Manager, you can use pre-defined change workflows to help automate approvals and avoid unintentional results when making operational changes. Change Manager also helps you to safely implement changes by helping you avoid schedule conflicts with important business events and automatically notifying required approvers. Change Manager enables changes to be automatically rolled back based on Amazon CloudWatch alarms that you configure. Change Manager is also integrated with AWS Organizations and AWS Single Sign-On. These integrations help you manage changes across your organization from a single delegated administrator account using your existing identity source. You can monitor change progress from Change Manager and audit operational changes across your organization, providing improved visibility and accountability.
Change Manager is available in all AWS Regions where Systems Manager is offered (excluding the AWS GovCloud (US) Regions and AWS China Regions).
