We use it to compare reports during upgrade cycles to see what if anything changed. I believe this is the primary use case.

Documentation is available at http://pic.dhe.ibm.com/infocenter/cbi/v10r2m1/nav/0_28.

It has been available for a number of releases, including Cognos 8. Back then it was called "Upgrade Manager" - it's name was changed for the Cognos 10 release to Lifecycle Manager. You can find details of it here:
