Considerations in Selection of Policy Management Solutions
One of the hottest segments of the GRC market is for solutions to manage, maintain, and communicate policies. Organizations are scrambling to get a grip on the identification, approval, management, and awareness of policies amidst a growing environment of legal and compliance exposures to policy mismanagement and growing regulations.
Whether for a department policy portal or to manage the range of policies across the enterprise, policy management solutions are in demand. Historically the demand has been more on the backend management and maintenance of policies. However, recent RFP and inquiry trends that GRC 20/20 is involved with show a growing demand for the front-end employee portal and engagement on policies, often with integrated training and learning management.
Where there used to be just a few solutions to choose from there are now over eighty with vary capabilities and approaches. They offer varying breadth and depth of capabilities, and certainly no one offers a one size fits all solution. It has become a complex segment of the GRC market to navigate, understand, and find the solution(s) that is the perfect fit for your organization.
