"MetricStream demonstrated one of the most flexible GRC platforms evaluated", says the report
January 10, 2008 | Redwood Shores, California - MetricStream, Inc., a market leader in enterprise-wide Governance, Risk, Compliance (GRC) and Quality Management solutions, today announced that it has been cited as a 'Leader' in the recent published report Forrester WaveT: Enterprise Governance, Risk and Compliance Platforms 2007. MetricStream was among the select companies that Forrester invited to participate in its report The Forrester WaveT: Enterprise Governance, Risk and Compliance Platforms, Q4 2007.
Forrester developed a comprehensive set of approximately 100 evaluation criteria against which to evaluate the leading enterprise GRC platforms. In addition to market presence and client feedback, the companies were evaluated on a range of capabilities that span multiple enterprise GRC areas including many risk areas such as strategic, operational and IT risks as well as regulatory and operational compliance areas such as quality management, health and safety, financial assurance and corporate governance.
"Whereas GRC approaches of the past have been function-specific and isolated from other areas of the organization, companies are increasingly looking for a federated approach to manage their Corporate Governance initiatives, Enterprise and Operational Risk, Regulatory and Industry Compliance that spans the entire enterprise," said Gaurav Kapoor CFO and General Manager of MetricStream. "A federated and flexible GRC architecture built on MetricStream's technology and content infrastructure is designed for such environments. It gives stakeholders access to the critical information needed to run vital business operations while meeting corporate governance, risk management, regulatory and operational compliance objectives."
