Auditor Help: Managing Modules

Auditor Professional (version 3.0 and higher) offers the convenience of all reportable platforms in one interface. Each operating system, application, or database type that can be reported with Ecora software is a "module" that extends your control over your infrastructure. The module selector in the main interface allows you to choose which module is active and can be used to collect and report. Data from all modules is written to the configuration database and can be queried in cross-platform combinations through Fact-Finding Reports.
