Production systems need a stable environment to operate properly. Separating operational environments from development and test activities reduces the risks of modifications to the operational system that could compromise the system’s integrity or availability.
Development and test activities shall not be performed on production computing systems. Production environments shall be either logically or physically separate from development and test environments.
