PALO ALTO, Calif., March 7, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- MetricStream, a market-leader in Governance, Risk, and Compliance (GRC) solutions announced today the launch of its cloud-based content portal, GRCIntelligence.com, which serves as a one-stop source for GRC content, regulatory feeds, and market intelligence. The portal is an open standards-based content aggregation site, which enables GRC professionals to subscribe to curated information on a wide array of topics including regulatory compliance, audit, risk, vendor due diligence, IT risk and compliance, and control management frameworks. The content covers multiple industries including BFSI, Retail & CPG, Hi-Tech, Manufacturing, and Healthcare, and can be easily translated into valuable and actionable insights within the context of the organization's GRC program. The portal streams content directly as RSS feeds, alerts or email notifications to any GRCIntelligence.com subscriber.
GRCIntelligence.com was recently recognized as a recipient of the 2014 GRC Technology Innovation Awards hosted by independent analyst firm GRC 20/20 Research. Commenting on the awards, Michael Rasmussen, Chief GRC Pundit at GRC 20/20 Research said, "MetricStream's GRCIntelligence.com is an innovative content portal that enables GRC professionals to access and integrate the latest GRC content from a variety of knowledge providers and information sources through a single online content store. It enables organizations to source and integrate GRC content from multiple sources across risk, compliance and audit with their MetricStream GRC applications in real-time."
GRCIntelligence.com content easily integrates with the MetricStream GRC Platform through the GRCIntelligence application, enabling users to seamlessly access content as it is sourced within the respective MetricStream application. The content is delivered into the subscriber's MetricStream GRC application through channels in the GRCIntelligence application layer. MetricStream users have the capability to review the content as alerts, identify internal action items, log issues, trigger workflows, and notify users. This feature helps MetricStream users stay ahead of changes in the regulatory and compliance environment on a real time basis, as well as understand the impact of these changes on their organizational GRC framework within the application itself.
The GRCIntelligence.com portal currently offers content from over 50 leading content partners and sources including Unified Compliance Framework (UCF), Risk Spotlight, Shared Assessments, Code of Federal Regulations (CFR), and Clear Market Practices, and new content partners and sources are being continuously added to its portfolio. Subscribers can gain substantial know-how on a variety of related topics and can directly access critical regulatory reports and analysis, the latest updates to federal and state laws and regulations, and comprehensive risk and control libraries that can strengthen their overall risk and compliance management efforts.
"Keeping up with the pace of change across multiple laws, regulations, and mandates can be costly, and time-consuming," said Jo Reimers, Director of Regulatory Content at Clear Market Practices. She continued, "Our aim is to alleviate these challenges and provide relevant, timely, and well-structured regulatory content through GRCIntelligence.com. We are delighted to partner with MetricStream, and we believe that our content, integrated with MetricStream's industry leading GRC platform, will enable customers to successfully navigate today's complex regulatory landscape."
