" As IT and the business process become increasingly inseparable, IT Operations has to be in a position to provide necessary compliance information for regulations, such as Euro-SOX, Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards, Basel II and Gramm-Leach-Bliley. Thus job scheduling tools that automate some of these mission critical business processes should provide operational control and data to the businesses to demonstrate compliance. "

-- Milind Govekar, Research Vice President, Gartner

Policy-Driven Governance 
ActiveBatch promotes policy-driven governance throughout the organization with a comprehensive automation framework that supports auditing, revision history, policy authorizations, and advanced SLA management

ActiveBatch acts as a single pane of glass, providing organizations with a single and authoritative source to know exactly what’s running and when, with the ability to easily control and monitor the behavior and security of workflows. As a result, organizations benefit from improved transparency and control over the disparate systems, applications, and databases in their environment. 

Comprehensive Audit Framework
ActiveBatch’s audit framework drives improved governance throughout the organization by preventing and minimizing the impact of unauthorized changes to workflows. All changes or modifications made to objects are audited, with a full audit trail that can help users more easily track object changes and troubleshoot job failures faster and more reliably. 

ActiveBatch records and stores these changes along with the object ID, name, date & time, the specific action, and the user generating the actions. The audits can then be filtered, printed, and reported to comply with internal or external requirements. 

Revision History and Rollback 
Easily compare changes to objects with ActiveBatch’s Revision History. Revision History provides users with a comparison of all changes that exist between revisions on any ActiveBatch Object. After comparing changes, if a user does not want to accept the changes made to the object’s properties, they can simply rollback to an earlier version, making that version the most current. 

Changesets allow users to associate and identify multiple Object changes as part of a single Check-In and, when necessary, rollback multiple changes at one time. Built in audit trails to show what changes were deployed, when, and by whom, as well as the ability to add comments to document the purpose of a particular changeset provide users with a high degree of maintainability, manageability, and control.

Changesets & Change Management
Changesets within Change Management give users the ability to identify, rollback, restore, and audit groups of changes made within ActiveBatch Change Management.

Improving Security with Policies
ActiveBatch supports the use of policies to ensure a more secure automation environment. Using customizable audit fields that can either be optional or mandatory, ActiveBatch audit fields can be required when objects within the ActiveBatch system are modified, triggered, updated, or added. Fields can be created to require a Description, approved by, authorized ID or any other policy requirement. As a result, organizations benefit from a more tightly controlled automation environment, with a reduced risk of unauthorized changes to objects.

Service Level Agreements
ActiveBatch offers extensive management and monitoring for Service Level Agreements (SLAs). ActiveBatch helps organizations improve service levels by automatically allocating more resources to SLA-marked jobs or plans to ensure they meet established deadlines. Additionally, ActiveBatch’s SLA Monitor View provides a centralized viewpoint for gaining greater insight into critically marked SLA workflows with a real-time view combining text and graphical workflow relationships.
