PALO ALTO, Calif., April 30, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- LexisNexis, a leading global provider of content-enabled workflow solutions, and MetricStream, a market leader in Governance, Risk, and Compliance (GRC) solutions, today announced a strategic alliance to integrate LexisNexis regulatory and legislative intelligence with MetricStream's cloud-based content portal, GRCIntelligence.com.
Subscribers to LexisNexis content through GRCIntelligence.com will now have direct access to adopted regulations across 7,000 agencies and enacted legislations for all 50 States in the US and Congress through the portal. Subscribers will be able to leverage their MetricStream solutions to assess the impact of regulations, and seamlessly update policies, procedures, and internal controls to strengthen their organizations' regulatory compliance and corporate governance.
"Today's regulatory landscape is a maze of complex laws with various objectives and requirements that frequently change," said Ashvini Thammaiah, Director of Alliances at LexisNexis. "We know that organizations are struggling to track, prioritize, and understand the impact of these regulations on their business. By integrating our regulatory content directly into MetricStream's GRC platform, we can help simplify the regulatory compliance process for these organizations."
MetricStream's GRCIntelligence.com is a centralized source of curated GRC content, regulatory feeds, and market intelligence from several sources. This content integrates with MetricStream's GRC platform through the GRCIntelligence application, and users can seamlessly access content as it is being compiled from within their MetricStream solutions. GRCIntelligence.com was recently recognized as a winner at the 2014 GRC Technology Innovation Awards hosted by independent analyst firm GRC 20/20 Research.
The LexisNexis and MetricStream content integration will deliver regulatory intelligence to each subscriber's MetricStream GRC solution through alerts, notifications, and content updates. Users can then automatically trigger workflows to review the regulatory updates, determine their effect on policies and controls, notify the relevant stakeholders and identify action items.
"We're pleased to collaborate with LexisNexis to offer comprehensive regulatory content," said Gaurav Kapoor, Chief Operating Officer at MetricStream. He continued, "In listening to our customers around the world, the volume of regulatory content that they need to monitor poses many challenges for them. Efficiently automating and processing this content in a way that can help drive business processes is critical. Through MetricStream GRC Platform, GRCIntelligence.com, and our alliance strategy with knowledge providers, MetricStream's vision of integrating content, software, and community provides robust functionality, and serves as a future-proof solution to today's challenges. This alliance with LexisNexis will further equip our customers with regulatory intelligence and compliance workflow tools to efficiently meet their corporate governance objectives and enhance business performance."
