This is talking about how businesses can adapt with new technology. The two abovementioned terms are giving me a bit of hassle. Bear.

English translation:change management / configuration control
Explanation:
(as noted, there's a typo in the French: "evolutions" is probably the intended word)

Although not a literal translation (which would be the very clumsy "follow-up / monitoring of configurations"), "configuration control" is a standard term in U.S. technology and aerospace companies. Essentially, it refers to the process of ensuring that no aspects of the business develop disproportionally or get out of hand.

Cheers, HC

change management. configuration logging


Explanation:
change management, configuration logging

"change management" is an IT concept that concerns the process of managing changes in software design, configuration, blah blah blah. It involves documenting and planning change in an orderly fashion.


"logging" is similar - maintaining a log of configuration adjustments... very important with large applications...
