We’ve introduced RFC process at several organizations to keep evolution of the platform transparent to the users.

We use an RFC design/approval process, ADRs living with code (IaC and services) and lastly tools like Cloudcraft (AWS) or Clodockit (Multi-cloud) for live views of our infra. These require disciplined tagging to filter & visualize specific “stack” deployments. We are evaluating Firefly for cataloging and assessing drift/unmanaged/untagged resources.
