Why Does Drift Matter?
When implemented, a business’ cloud infrastructure is mapped out so that every aspect is known. When changes are made, an operations team may not be aware, losing visibility into the system. When changes go undetected and unmanaged, the number of adjustments build and grow within the system. Without active management and tracking of changes, IT lacks insight into how the system has evolved, leading to a number of issues that impact operational efficiency, system security, and a variety of other critical functions.
Cloud configuration changes and resource additions contribute to configuration drift. When drift is unchecked, a number of potential issues can occur.
