Sarbanes-Oxley Compliance

Sarbanes-Oxley Compliance

What does Sarbanes-Oxley compliance require?

Section 404 requires:

  • “responsibility of management for establishing and maintaining an adequate internal control structure and procedures for financial reporting”
  • “an assessment (…) of the effectiveness of the internal control structure and procedures”

From a software development perspective, many auditors require that any revisions to financial or accounting software must be fully documented as to what was changed, why, by whom, and when. This could be accounting systems themselves, or any system that interacts in any way with accounting systems or data.

Altoros can help setup a structure to make reporting of change much easier to achieve so that you begin to track the changes that occur to your application systems. We leverage Team Foundation Server to help comply with SOX guidelines in a way that:

  • Maximizes value of existing knowledge and software development investments
  • Can be implemented quickly without major disruption to existing development projects
  • Empower IT management with the date needed for compliance, without burdening the software teams process owners and minimize training costs

With Team Foundation Server, Altoros will help

  • Uncover what application code is changing in your software systems, who is changing it, and why they are changing it
  • Create the reports needed to help satisfy your auditors
  • Customize your software process to help create the appropriate workflow that works well within your structure, but also produces the data needed for compliancy
