How Can BI Techniques & Technologies Help With Your GRC Needs

by Steve BogdonWednesday, April 1, 2009


Governance, risk management and compliance (GRC) is a wide area to navigate - in fact, it's a set of interrelated streams.  While business professionals are often aware of the term, many don't have a handle on what it means or how it can be of use to them.

In April, Dashboard Insight will be try to unlock the mystery of GRC and examine it from a business intelligence perspective.  We're using the month to not only address GRC basics but also give you as much content as possible on how you can benefit from all the techniques and tools that surround it.

We look forward to receiving your articles and dashboards as well as having you visit us in April!

During April you can expect to find the following articles:

Meeting Compliance And Managing Risk Through The Use Of Dashboards

The concept of GRC (governance, risk and compliance) can differ based on the organization and the type of governance or risk management that is being addressed. Although each organization may vary slightly, the fact remains that organizations are required to put processes in place to ensure they meet compliance and mitigate risk. These processes are supported by the use of solutions designed to manage compliance initiatives or risk, or that report on the progress, number of violations, or constraints put in place to maintain these solutions. One way organizations are starting to manage initiatives company wide is by deploying dashboards that enable executives and decision makers to see how the organization is performing as a whole as well as by identifying potential issues before they occur.

Merging Governance, Risk and Compliance with BPM

The merging of governance, risk management and compliance methodologies continues to gain visibility in both business and academic circles. Known as GRC, this tri-partied coalescence of best practices is now starting to get thorough support from business intelligence (BI) vendors around the globe. Much of the BI-centered GRC focus revolves around performance metrics and leading/lagging indictors that are rooted in traditional statistical or data mining-practices. However, there is an increasing proclivity to treat GRC more holistically.

Bank Branch and ATM Risk Management Dashboard

This dashboard is actually a full solution for banks wishing to measure the risk status of their branches and ATM’s

We live in an age where everything we do as individuals is constantly being improved, or automated. Processes are being re-designed to meet each change. However, when we look at the incumbents in the space of business availability and application monitoring, we see those vendors treading water. Innovation in these organisations is as close as the next acquistion.

Risk Management Dashboards

Risk Management is now a top agenda item for corporate boards, even though there is not always a consistent and correctly structured approach to the handling of risk. As a premium component of corporate governance, the attention given to risk management topics will only increase in this century. Because of this focus, risk management dashboards are gaining prominence, as they attempt to tackle the many dimensions of business risk above and beyond the traditional areas such as legal, market, credit, and asset risk.
