Why Read This
The enterprise governance, risk, and compliance (GRC) market is still relatively young, populated primarily by small but solid pure-play vendors. Growing corporate concerns have raised market expectations, however, bringing new competition from startups as well as industry giants into an already-crowded space. Forrester evaluated 14 enterprise GRC platform vendors using 80 criteria. BWise, OpenPages, and Thomson Reuters earned the highest scores overall due to their comprehensive capabilities and strong market strategies. MetricStream and AXENTIS made impressive showings in the Leader category as well. The Strong Performers included Archer Technologies, Cura Software Solutions, and Strategic Thought Group near the top, followed by Protiviti, MEGA, and Methodware. Meanwhile, SAI Global, SAP, and Trintech finished as GRC Contenders.
