The CERN Computer Centre is reviewing strategies for optimizing the use of the existing infrastructure in the future. There have been significant developments in the area of computer centre and configuration management tools over the last few years. CERN is examining how these modern, widely-used tools can improve the way in which we manage the centre, with a view to reducing the overall operational effort, increasing agility and automating as much as possible. This presentation will focus on the current status of deployment of the new configuration toolset, the reasons why specific tools were chosen, and give an outlook on how we plan to manage the change to the new system.
