No, they're not.

The tools exist if you're already a Puppet slash Ansible slash CFengine
slash Chef slash Salt slash whatever-flavor-you-decide-to-package guru.
For everyone else you need a reliable, fully automatic detection system
which can feed the configuration management engine and handle all of the
exceptions and snowflakes and other unique things you'll find in a
contemporary begadgeted home or the organically grown enterprise and
everything in between. Nobody to date has been able to create such a
detection system and not for lack of trying. It's the holy grail of
systems monitoring.
