Change Man
1 What is a Change Man:

Change Man a product of Serena Software International, is a Configuration Management Tool used to manage the process of moving application software from a development environment to a production environment. All the information needed to install a particular change into the production environment is grouped together to form a Change Package. Change Man does its job by managing the movement of change package information among five distinct environments: development, staging, baseline, production and backup. An optional sixth environment could also include a testing, or promotion environment.

associated items include work datasets, activity records, audit records and general information that is stored
