But let’s just say it: compliance audits are not fun. That’s especially true when it comes to engineering and development teams, who are tasked with gathering all of the relevant data – in other words, evidence – needed to assess and demonstrate compliance with various regulatory frameworks. The more complex the environment, the harder the task.
Making matters worse, evidence collection is a highly manual process that, depending on the size of the organization and the number of audits, can consume hundreds of hours annually, at least. For many enterprises, the commitment is measured in thousands of hours spread across multiple different teams.
