1. An automated method for facilitating management of a data processing environment comprising:

  • receiving a change request for making a change to a data processing device of the data processing environment;

    upon determining, as a result of a pre-implementation change request approval process, that the received change request has been approved, selecting the change for implementation;

    after receiving an indication that the change has been made, generating a change report, in digital form, based at least in part on a reference state of the data processing device, the change report enumerating the change made to the data processing device;

    receiving an indication of a post-implementation change approval of the enumerated change; and

    in response to receiving the indication of post-implementation change approval of the enumerated changes, updating the reference state of the data processing device to include the enumerated changes.
