through product release.
Scalable across any enterprise, large or small, CMCentral operates innocuously
freeing anyone involved in the change process from having to worry about whether or not
they follow the correct procedures, allowing them to concentrate on their task at hand.
Powerful metrics and flexible reporting provide insight into individual actions and their
status, all the while assuring ownership, handoffs and approvals do not fall through the

Features at a Glance Closed Loop Corrective Action Technology
With CMCentral's built-in Closed Loop Corrective Action technology, organizations are now
able -- using pre-built off-the-shelf components -- to model the entire "Lifecycle of Change" from initial request through resolution. Leveraging
Eden's powerful process and CLCA Component capabilities, CMCentral enables you to manage,
authorize and track modifications to any hardware or software asset that needs to be under
tight change control.
Complete support for CCB Review Boards and the ability to handle multiple issue types
(Change Requests, Problem Reports, etc.) allow you analyze issues, monitor progress, and
more effectively and pro-actively manage change or problem resolution.
Configuration Item (CI) Management
CMCentral provides a comprehensive set of tools for creating and managing these complex
structures and their associated interdependencies. Our easy-to-use interface allows you to
define hieratical product structures and all sub-elements to be managed regardless of their
document types. Full branching is supported to handle the realities and complexities of
managing multiple code streams.
CMCentral provides complete baseline management support including automated baseline generation, merging and
comparing (using a visual difference tool). All baselines are stored securely in the system
with all of their relevant asset information including relationships and dependencies.
Operations such as rollback recovery are easily facilitated for either build or QA purposes.
Built-in Repository Management
CMCentral provides a complete enterprise class repository that includes features such as
version control, check-out/check-in, audit history and advanced search capabilities. Content,
either structured or unstructured, can be stored in any format including documents, web
pages, XML files, rich media, etc. Our powerful versioning capabilities enable you to support
parallel development with multiple "Active" versions. Upon check-in the system automatically
compares files and resolves any potential version conflicts.
Process Tracking and Audit Trails Sandbox Management
Because CMCentral was designed to handle both hardware and software, it comes complete
with "Sandbox" or "Workspace" management. The developer simply checks-out files to his or
her local machine and performs their task. At check-in, CMCentral remembers the exact
location of the files, performs a consistency check and if appropriate checks them back into
the system under proper version control.
Third Party & Legacy Integration
Using Eden Application Builder you have complete accessibility at an API level to develop
custom interfaces to support your unique legacy environment including ERP, PDM, Content and
Document Management systems. This is critical to many organizations that have made existing
investments in other enterprise technologies and desire to leverage them for maximum business
