CA Endevor Software Change Manager® is the most widely used SCM solution for the mainframe environment. It enables control of all software management tasks associated with the mainframe development environment. It automates source code transformation merging, versioning of new releases and change tracking. By eliminating the manual steps that bog down the software development process, it ensures greater efficiency and fewer errors.
Regulatory mandates, changing business needs and the demands for consistently high levels of IT services drive the need for a cohesive approach to software change management. Your organization must be able to prove compliance with critical controls, set priorities for software changes, and track and implement changes to applications.

CA Endevor Software Change Manager: The Flexible Way to Manage your Mainframe Environment
CA Endevor Software Change Manager (CA Endevor SCM) automates the management of the entire development process — from initial impact analysis through distribution — for greater efficiency and complete control. The integration of CA Endevor SCM with CA Software Change Manager (formerly known as CA Harvest) provides unparalleled levels of CCM support throughout the enterprise. CA Endevor SCM automates the entire development process, providing the flexibility to adapt to an organization’s specific business requirements while ensuring consistency and complete control. Its life cycle processes are defined and administered according to the unique requirements of the enterprise to categorize and protect software assets and provide application integrity.
CA Endevor SCM expedites movement through the application development life cycle by enabling users to move any component from one phase of the development process to the next with a single command. For example, a single CA Endevor SCM action results in the promotion of source and executables along with their associated forms, documents and JCL, as well as a clean up of prior libraries.
CA Endevor SCM drives the production turnover process by verifying approvals, recording changes and executing a change package in the established time frame without duplication of effort or risk of manual errors. It provides Maximum Application Integrity through customizable controls and comprehensive audit trails and can help organizations fully prepare for any compliance audit, enabling companies to enforce established policies and procedures for higher quality applications with less production downtime.
