What is APPS-8 Source Code Control?

The APPS-8 Source Code management is an integral part of the change management process. The tracking and management of code from a development stage to deployment to production provide the ability to resolve any conflicts (for example, not knowing which changes have been deployed or identifying incompatible changes or changes that need to be reworked) if they ever arise.

In an audit, your auditors want to understand your tracking and management processes. Most often, this is managed using a version control system. Thus, providing evidence of the use of such a tool is typically sufficient for your audit documentation.

The use of a version control tool is also best practice and recommended for software teams.
