Abstract

Ac couple of key advantages provided by enterprise systems, which are often overlooked until the auditors start poking around, are process logging, auditing, and data lineage. The conceptsare simple: when you move data from system to system and manipulate it along the way, you might need to keep track of where it came from, maintain summary information about data processing, and know which processes touched that data along the way. There are a few reasons for keeping track of this additional information:
  • You may need to keep it for troubleshooting purposes, to trace data issues backward through your processes to their source.

  • The legal department may have mandated a new legal requirement to document every step of processing in real-time in the event of issues.

  • Your business may fall under a regulation such as Sarbanes-Oxley Act, SOX, or Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, HIPAA, that requires high levels of security and controls around confidential medical or consumer data.
