Business Intelligence Trends: Eye on Compliance

Tomorrow, September 11th at 3PM ET, will happen a live Web broadcast presentation entitled Business Intelligence Trends: Eye on Compliance, provided by DM Review and hosted by Eric Kavanagh with Jim Ericson, in its program called DM Radio.

Accordind DM Review: "Which one word strikes fear into the hearts of modern executives? Compliance! Mandates such as HIPAA, Sarbanes-Oxley, Basel II and others require that companies pay ever closer attention to their core processes, under penalty of stiff fines, even jail.

Complicating matters is the divergent nature of such mandates. On the one hand, HIPAA requires that sensitive patient data be protected, effectively hidden from unauthorized view. On the other hand, Sarbanes-Oxley seeks to reveal critical information and prevent organizations from hiding financial and process data. Still, there are ties that bind these mandates, and there are best practices for helping to ensure compliance while also improving operational efficiency.

Meanwhile, the rise of compliance has been a boon for software and services companies, who are finding new and creative ways to help organizations remain compliant. Tune into this episode of DM Radio to hear from the experts about what your organization can do to achieve compliance and also reap other benefits from compliance-related initiatives. We'll talk to: Compliance Weekly Editor in Chief Matt Kelly; Oracle Senior Director Michelle Shannon; and Exeros Vice President Todd Goldman.

Attendees will learn:
- The invaluable role of business rules management systems
- How data governance boards can help or hinder compliance
- Why it pays to be responsive to auditors
- The increasingly important role of application logs
- How a strategic view of compliance can pay serious dividends."

The Governance, Risk and Compliance(GRC) was driven by the Sarbanes-Oxley Act, and nowadays is an important issue to the companies.

In the DM Review website, you can register for this live Web broadcast.

You also can check out the DM Radio archives to hear previous programs with a variety of other issues.

The DM radio is an excellent initiative by DM Review to spread knowledge with expert professionals in interesting subjects.
