Challenges Managing Kubernetes ConfigMaps and Secrets

There needs to be a better way to manage Kubernetes ConfigMaps and secrets. One approach is to use a centralized configuration data platform that automatically synchronizes ConfigMaps and secrets with a single source of truth. Developers will spend less time manually editing, copying and pasting YAML files and more time on new features.

Why is Secrets Management Spiraling Out of Control?

Managing secrets is one of the most important components of a comprehensive configuration management strategy. In response, unified configuration management solutions provide consolidated access to all parameters, environment variables, and secrets.

This unified view of all config data streamlines workflows, enhances compliance, reduces errors, and boosts productivity.
