Ansible is an open-source software provisioning, configuration management, and application-deployment tool. It runs on many Unix-like systems, and can configure both Unix-like systems as well as Microsoft Windows. It includes its own declarative language to describe system configuration
Configuration is maintained in [yaml] files which describe sequences of configuration actions, and which should be written to ensure idempotency.
There is an open-source collection of modules for many popular applications and systems software at Ansible Galaxy
