Governance at the enterprise level has been gaining increasing prominence due to requirements of business, management and regulators. Regulations such as the US Sarbanes- Oxley Act and similar regulations worldwide have pushed governance to the forefront and have made implementing governance and control frameworks a compliance requirement. This has made it imperative for enterprises to understand governance, risk and compliance requirements as relevant.
Compliance has emerged from a peripheral concern of auditors and lawyers to an area that encompasses an entire organization as well as its suppliers, customers and other stakeholders. All business managers, from mid-level to executive, need to understand the multitude of compliance initiatives designed to improve transparency in financial reporting and good corporate governance.

With increasing expectations for more effective enterprise-wide risk management, the demand for software platforms related to enterprise governance, risk and compliance (GRC) is on the rise. In this article, Forrester Research, Inc. provides summaries of its analysis of their evaluation of fourteen enterprise GRC platform vendors to determine the strengths and weaknesses of each one.
GRC products have been transforming to meet the growing demands from business professionals.

The common technologies that these enterprise-wide platforms require include data mapping, workflow management, content management and reporting to track and evaluate GRC status.
In addition to the platform technologies, vendors offer varying applications to meet the distinctive functions business are searching to find. Companies that have implemented GRC platforms generally have experienced results that include greater efficiency, reduced risk and improved strategy.
