Why Read This Report

The governance, risk management, and compliance (GRC) technology market is one of fluctuation, confusion, and contention. Many technologies relevant for governance, risk management, and compliance professionals have been around for more than a decade, but the GRC concept itself did not start to take shape until vendors began offering tools to help public companies comply with Sarbanes-Oxley. Since then, compliance and risk management roles have gained more prominence, and demands on them from regulators, boards, executives, and business partners have skyrocketed. As you turn to technology to help respond to the avalanche of requests and requirements, you'll find a vast landscape of vendors ready to support you -- some proudly flying the GRC banner and some shunning it. This TechRadar™ presents 16 of the technology categories most relevant to professionals in GRC functions, whether or not they use the GRC initialism.
