how configuration data management works

Machine learning assisted configuration data management

recondition your configuration data

Let's look at how a configuration data management platform works. Sweagle is a bit like a high-end AC unit for your configuration data. Sweagle sucks in all your configuration data (warts and all), filters it to remove the bad config, takes a quick snapshot of how it looks, and then pumps it out for other tools to consume. The result? Clean, happy configuration data. 

As well as all the usual integrations you'd expect, there also a Sweagle API. So if there’s anything a little unusual you’d like it to work alongside, there’s an easy way to make it happen.

configuration data consumption cycle

Here's a quick-start look at how configuration data management works. Sweagle eats configuration data for dinner. It’s a hungry Pac-Man that wants every last scrap of configuration data. This is how it works:

  1. Sweagle collects all configuration data types
  2. Then it cleans it, sorts it, secures it and validates it
  3. Sweagle captures snapshots of changes
  4. Making configuration data ready to be consumed by the toolchain using secure APIs
  5. Rinse and repeat

Does it matter how configuration data is managed?

How configuration data is managed in your organization does matter. It matters so that configuration data can stop being a constant headache for your teams. Instead of causing problems, configuration data can actually work for you. Turn it into your best asset and really drive that quality into your software development pipeline. No matter where you sit. 

Whether you’re in Dev, Ops or Security, Sweagle whips your configuration data into shape. It works even when you’re somewhere outside DevOps but are still feeling the pain of configuration data issues. Sweagle automatically takes care of sorting, validating and securing your configuration data so it can start working for you, not against you.

Sweagle isn’t very fussy when it comes to other tools within the CI/CD landscape. It’s pretty gregarious and integrates easily with quite a host of software, tools and platforms. Here are some of the common ones that Sweagle works with: 

  • Ansible
