Last week we announced the availability of OpenPages version 6.0, which marks a major milestone in the evolution of the GRC market-from convergence to insight. It also represents the completion of the first phase of our technical integration with IBM. And, the new release will help prepare our customers for managing through regulatory change in the post-Dodd-Frank environment.
Several industry experts have had positive things to say about the news:
- In IT Business Edge, Mike Vizard wrote:
“But there is a significant gap between collecting data and actually making it usable. The release of version 6.0 of the OpenPages GRC platform, which IBM acquired last year, is a significant step forward in terms of closing that gap by tightening the integration between OpenPages and the business intelligence (BI) software from Cognos that IBM also acquired back in 2007.”
- Compliance Week covered the news in a blog post
- Industry Analyst Guillermo Kopp wrote a report on 6.0, which details the key benefits and opportunities for the combined solutions of OpenPages and IBM. In regards to integrated risk management he says:
“A centralized governance, risk, and compliance (GRC) platform will help large companies manage various risks across client, location, product, and service domains. For financial firms, integrating financial risk dimensions (e.g., credit, market) will augment the challenge substantially.”
- 6.0 was also featured as the top story in CMS Wire’s GRC Roll-up
We’re happy to see the positive reaction to 6.0!
