Market insight

We recently commissioned an independent report by Celent that looks at the current and future state of GRC technology.

The research showed that many gaps still remain for visibility of risk, as organizations rely on fragmented data and processes tools to inform risk decision-making.

The report sought to answer three key questions:

  1. What are the main challenges facing risk and compliance offices today?
  2. What are the limitations of current approaches to GRC?
  3. What capabilities are needed to support a next-generation, integrated GRC paradigm?
