An application maker has added features to its change-management product designed to make internally developed software comply with regulations.
Building applications can be hard enough without having to worry about the result not complying with Sarbanes-Oxley Act rules. Application-quality software maker Newmerix Corp. has updated its Automate Program Manager with features designed to help companies regulated by Sarbanes-Oxley maintain compliance.
The application is a change-management tool that centralizes the collection, prioritization, and tracking of service requests made for in-development apps. It can be used for companies doing internal development and vendors creating packaged apps.
The updated version of Automate Program Manager boasts change-control functions, customization, auditing, and notification features. Newmerix charges $45,000 per server, $1,000 for a named user, and $1,500 for each concurrent user.
Change requests made in the updated Automate Program Manager are logged by the system. In Sarbanes-Oxley-regulated industries, logs like these must be kept.
New customization features enable users to make service requests involving defects, enhancements, patches, or new regulatory controls.
An added notification function alerts specified people via E-mail about new, modified, or deleted service requests.
