Compliance is getting more important everyday and we see that nowadays more companies have to comply to regulations. Platform Manager helps with compliance in many ways. First of all the entire life-cycle of all applications is audited and available for auditors by just running a report. So what you can see is when an application was changed, who changed it, when it was tested by whom and when it was promoted to production and by whom. Platform Manager can report when a specific application was being used in production.
Secondly the Metadata Repository is open and many Customers have built there own dashboards to report on their BI Development and Promotion process. Finally the ability to define privileges at almost every level, the segregation of duties and the ability to isolate Production servers from Developers all contribute to better compliance.
