event log manager (ELM)

What is an event log manager (ELM)?

An event log manager (ELM) is an application that tracks changes in an organization's IT infrastructure. These change are reflected in logs, or 'audit trails,' that must be produced for a compliance audit. Logs must be accurate, verifiable records of events like unsuccessful login attempts, granting or removal of access privileges or email backups.

As a result of increasing pressure towards providing documentable IT compliance, event log managers have become an important tool for system administrators and CIOs. These tools are still developing and are becoming increasingly important to enterprises with complex change management proceses.
