What is configuration management?
DevSecOps is just an operational approach or practices that combined development and operation along with security, where as ‘configuration management’ manage existing or new application software or infrastructure or application installation, OS upgrade, patching, and many other configuration which needed for development, qa, uat and pre-production environments. In CM we have concept called configuration management database CMDB which holds all configuration form development to production, with help of CMDB we will achieve identical environments from development to production.
In past decade, we used to do all application software installation, configuration and upgrade manually and most of time our application were get failure due to human error. 

According to Digital.ai Periodic Table of DevOps Tools
The Periodic Table of DevOps Tools is the industry’s go-to resource for identifying best-of-breed tools across the software delivery life-cycle.
