Abstract

A computer implemented methodology for source code execution monitoring and responsibility assignation on disparate enterprise systems. When a developer commits a change to source code details of authorship are logged into a centralised system. The centralised system utilises an existing enterprise human resource management system to assign hierarchical responsibility to the edited section of code on a line-by-line basis. When a user executes a build of the source code against a system, whether development or production, details from the operating system (OS) are logged. The idea, in this way, allows for an audit trail to discover authorship, ownership and responsibility for source code and subsequent executions on disparate enterprise systems.

A method of source code authoring and assignation on disparate enterprise systems

A computer implemented methodology for source code execution monitoring and responsibility assignation on disparate enterprise systems. When a developer commits a change to source code details of authorship are logged into a centralised system. The centralised system utilises an existing enterprise human resource management system to assign hierarchical responsibility to the edited section of code on a line-by-line basis. When a user executes a build of the source code against a system, whether development or production, details from the operating system (OS) are logged. The idea, in this way, allows for an audit trail to discover authorship, ownership and responsibility for source code and subsequent executions on disparate enterprise systems.

Enterprise systems are comprised of disparate interconnected nodes on

which development can take place on any or multiple entities. Issues, for monitoring and compliance, occur when unexpected events take place as a result of an execution of compiled code and responsibility for that execution cannot be discovered quickly.

    To track source code an organization can implement a source code management system (SCM), however, this type of system is concerned with authorship and versioning for the purposes of; code unification and bug tracking and not, as uniquely in this disclosure- for the purposes of expedited discovery, monitoring and audit trails. The novel aspect of the disclosure, unlike current artificially similar systems, is that it aims to resolve a different issue, using a different methodology.

    The idea provides a computer implemented method for automatically recording authorship, ownership and responsibility for source code, and subsequent execution of the source code, on disparate enterprise systems for the purposes of expedited discovery, monitoring and audit trails. The computer implemented method...
