ManageEngine ADAudit Plus is a UBA-driven auditor that helps keep your AD, Azure AD, file systems, Windows servers, and workstations secure and compliant by providing full visibility into all activities with just a few clicks.
This return on investment (ROI) calculator will help organizations estimate their potential yearly cost savings in USD and yearly ROI after automating the change audit report generation process using ADAudit Plus.

Amount spent per year generating change audit reports using native tools:
The potential cost saving is calculated by comparing the cost of generating a report using native tools with the cost of generating a report using ADAudit Plus. While generating a change audit report using ADAudit Plus involves just a few clicks (post installation, which can be done in less than an hour), generating a report using native tools is a time-consuming process that involves at least the following two steps:
Event logs do not get replicated between computers. As a result, an organization's change audit trail is fragmented across multiple computers. So, IT admins have to configure Windows Event Forwarding (WEF) to read logs on any computer and forward the events they choose to one or more Windows Event Collector (WEC) servers.
Each Windows change activity creates multiple events. In some cases, individual events provide limited information. In these cases, multiple events need to be correlated to get the full picture (before and after values of a GPO setting change, for example). Using the Event Viewer to glean information manually and then generate reports is a labor-intensive, if not an impossible, task. To resolve this, IT admins leverage PowerShell scripts to generate reports.
