Overview

Users can access the Evolven Change Analytics Server to interactively review detected changes and differences, their risks, impact, and correlation to investigated issues. In addition to interactive analysis the users can set up alerts, reports, and other types of notifications to be generated by the Evolven Change Analytics Server. The reports are sent when a risky change or drift is detected in a particular PCF environment or across multiple environments.
