BWise cited as a "Leader in GRC Platforms" in the Q1 2014 Forrester Wave" Report
Recognized as a Leader
Forrester has been evaluating the Governance, Risk Management and Compliance market since 2006, when their first GRC Wave was published. Now the new 2014 version has come out, and I can tell you that we are extremely proud of the result. We're the only vendor that has been recognized as a Leader ever since 2006. Our strategy is ranked highest overall, customer satisfaction ranking is extremely strong and the product offering is again leading.
Long-Term Client Relations
Almost two years after the acquisition by NASDAQ OMX, this is a true recognition of the strategy that we jointly set; helping to build and rebuild trust in the corporate world by strengthening global risk management, compliance and audit programs.
I encourage you to carefully read the report, and compare the different players in the industry. There truly are differences in approaches, and enormous differences in the underlying platform philosophy. Of course, at BWise we strongly believe in our own strategy (and the Forrester report just gave us the confirmation it apparently is pretty good). But we also see other approaches in the market, and we understand these may fit your needs better. We're looking for long-term client relations, so we'll honestly tell you about these differences so you can make up your mind. A GRC platform decision is not a short-term decision: after 20 years at BWise, that's certainly one thing I have learned.
