Innovation in Enterprise GRC Data Architecture
[tabs style=”default”] [tab title=”Executive Summary”]
The organization requires complete situational and holistic awareness of GRC across operations, processes, relationships, systems, and data to see the big picture or risk and its impact on organization performance and strategy. Distributed, dynamic, and disrupted business requires the organization to take a strategic approach to GRC information and data architecture. GRC fails when risk issues are addressed as a rigid and non-flexible system of parts that do not integrate and work as a collective whole. GRC is about the interactions and relationships of cause and effect across strategy, process, reporting, information, and technology supporting the business and requires a solid, flexible, and adaptive GRC data architecture model. Quantivate is a GRC solution that GRC 20/20 has researched, evaluated, and reviewed with organizations that are using it in changing, distributed, and dynamic business environments. GRC 20/20 has evaluated and verified the innovation found in Quantivate and sees this as a compelling offering for Enterprise GRC with a compelling data architecture that is highly adaptive and flexible. Their approach and data model makes organizations more efficient, effective, and agile. In this context, GRC 20/20 has recognized Quantivate and their ability for Linked Resources with a 2015 GRC Innovation Award for the best technology innovation for Enterprise GRC Architecture in 2015.
