Ecora Software Announces Regional Seminar Series
with Interphase Systems

Technology Experts to Address "Risk and Compliance
without Sacrificing Delivery of Business Services"

Portsmouth, N.H. – October 29, 2007 – Ecora Software, the market-proven leader for configuration audit and analytics solutions, announced today a joint seminar with Interphase Systems, a leading technology and business consulting organization, to discuss risk management and compliance for the pharmaceutical, healthcare and financial services industries.

The seminar will cover:

  • Why a reactive approach to compliance doesn't work
  • Change management's relationship to effective compliance
  • Keys to an effective change management process
  • How configuration auditing & analytics lays the foundation for change management
  • The dividends change management provides for improved business service availability
  • How to verify change for management and the auditor
  • How to be prepared to produce detailed reports that address the auditor's concerns, on demand

"Corporations have never been more at risk than in today's climate of internet-exposed systems and data" says John Biglin, CEO of Interphase Systems, Inc., a leading management and technology consulting firm that advises Corporate Boards and senior executives on Compliance and Change Management.

"Today's regulatory demands of compliance and corporate governance require a unified, but multidimensional Enterprise Compliance Framework (ECF) to ensure that a Company is capable of truly managing its technology environment. Proper Change Management is essential due to the sheer number, frequency and complexity of changes that are required to keep technology environments tuned for optimal performance, reliability and up-to-date security."

"In addition, many companies are forced to scramble when it comes to preparing for, and responding to, an audit whether it be an internal, public, or customer audit. By leveraging the right tools and processes, companies can not only look prepared, but also BE prepared. The Ecora product suite is a great example of the types of tools that foster Change Management, Auditing and Reporting."
