For two decades network configuration on Linux Servers has consisted of configuration files and scripts. While there's nothing wrong with this approach (more the opposite), it today is maxed out. Virtual LANs, virtualization, bridging, bonding, IPv6, wired and wireless - combined with the requirement to change configurations dynamically - have made the aforementioned classical approach reach its limits. And NetworkManager did not manage the more complex of those, specifically in arbitrary combinations. Enter the "wicked" project started by Olaf Kirch some years ago. The wicked project tackles these challenges by implementing a dynamic infrastructure, combining a service daemon with dbus integration and a plug-in framework, the option to store configuration persistently, and interfaces to import existing script based static configuration of major Linux distributions into its wicked world.
