IBM OpenPages 8 - Innovating in the Open

Risk must be approached as a responsibility that extends beyond the risk function, and organizations should move towards connecting compliance and risk activities as a single system.  Read this blog post by Dave Marmer to learn more. This year’s release of OpenPages 8 centered on introducing greater access, transparency and usability for both traditional and nontraditional (first LOD) risk actors, and elevating linkage between risk management and risk activity through risk orchestration. In addition, OpenPages 8 has also transformed the cost and complexity associated with GRC system development and changes the dependency on IT expertise, to systems that are less complex to build and maintain, allowing for faster and more efficient time to production. Read this blog post by Christophe Delaure to learn more.
