Change management that’s the same, every single day
Eliminate time-consuming, manual tasks that introduce risk into Oracle and PeopleSoft-based ERP systems. With Stat, an automated ERP change management solution, you can easily secure workflows and migrations, apply business rules, enforce role-based security, and gain approval for code changes before they move to production.
Stat also retains everything related to the change process in a single repository, so you can report on change-based activities while actively demonstrating compliance. And Stat shortens audit prep time by 90 percent, so you spend less time on audits and more time driving your applications forward.
Stat software includes the following solutions:
Lock out and audit unauthorized application changes to ensure compliance. Enforce change control policies via workflow and role-based security rights, as well as audit changes to the underlying business logic. Generate reports that help you achieve compliance objectives.
Centrally manage workflow activities and ensure they are repeatable throughout the change management process. Automate approval authorizations, organize tasks by project and enforce proper procedures as changes are introduced.
Secure your environment and ensure that only those with the necessary level of access are able to perform the assigned job or task.
Schedule migrations during off hours without manual or user intervention, as well as notify stakeholders of such things as adverse events or one-off, ad hoc migrations. Easily control mass migration orders and specify pre- and post-migration steps.
Eliminate the need to manually recreate functional setup objects. Easily create and migrate setup objects between instances in less time and at a fraction of the cost of manual object recreation.
Minimize the risk of human error and ensure the proper migration of patches across your application infrastructure in a timely manner.
Gain visibility and accurately assess how changes will impact your environment before they are migrated. Proactively protect customizations and objects from being overwritten when changes are introduced.
Reduce the time and resources needed for control audits by retaining everything related to the change process in a single repository. Run reports based on your organization’s unique needs and keep stakeholders informed throughout each step of the change process.

Some Stat features will depend on the AD product release
All components of the technology stack for the Oracle E-Business Suite should be in compliance with Oracle's certification requirements
All versions of Sun SOLARIS, HP-UX, IBM, AIX, Linux and Windows certified with Oracle E-Business Suite.
Stat will be certified with most UNIX and Intel based platforms supported by Oracle. Contact us for updated platform certification. JDK/SDK Versions (32-bit): 7 and 8
Oracle developer object comparison is an optional feature with its own requirements. To enable object compare support for Oracle developer objects, a compatible version of Oracle Developer and the Forms Applet Jar Files component of the Oracle Forms product must be installed. Additional requirements are needed for the following:
Must be NT, Unix, MVS or Netware compatible; SSH2 must use standard format listing; OpenSSH (UNIX and Windows), SSH Communications Corp. (UNIX and Windows), bitwise WinSSHD, and wodSSHServer are supported. VanDyke VShell 2.1 is NOT supported.
The configuration of your SSH server determines which ciphers are used when connecting to the Stat Central Agent. The Stat Central Agent currently supports the following cipher and MAC configurations: Ciphers:
