MetricStream, Inc., the market leader in enterprise-wide Governance, Risk, Compliance (GRC) and Quality Management solutions, today announced that Gartner has placed MetricStream in the Leaders Quadrant in its recently released report “Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Governance, Risk and Compliance Platforms (EGRC)”.¹

"We are pleased that MetricStream was recognized by a position in the leaders quadrant.” said Shellye Archambeau, CEO of MetricStream. "Customers are clearly embracing our vision of an integrated strategy to successfully manage programs for corporate governance, regulatory and operational compliance, and risk management.”

To be successful in the GRC market globally, vendors need to have strong functionality, vision and strategy with a focus on four primary GRC functions - audit management, risk management, compliance management and policy management – and have successfully executed horizontally across several industries.

“We are seeing strong interest from companies across industries like Utilities, Oil & Gas, Financial Services, Life Sciences, Manufacturing, Airlines, Retail and others that are looking to transition from silos of governance, risk, compliance and quality management to a more integrated and platform based approach for increased transparency and accountability in their GRC and quality management initiatives,” said Gaurav Kapoor, CFO and General Manager of MetricStream. “In my opinion, Gartner's evaluation and placement of MetricStream in the Leaders Quadrant validates the strategic approach and compelling value of our solutions.”

According to the report, “an EGRC platform must solve immediate GRCM needs and also enable the enterprise to pursue future consolidation and integration of GRC activities.” MetricStream was one of the first companies to see the vision of integrated GRC and Quality Management and created a powerful and patented Enterprise Compliance Platform. This allows companies to manage their Corporate Governance, Risk Management, Compliance and Quality Management processes all on the same platform leveraging advanced platform features including reporting, analytics, universal search, embedded best practices, a very high degree of configurability and personalization and the capability to easily integrate with multiple systems through the ‘infolet’ technology.

MetricStream’s ComplianceOnline portal which offers significant content (training, regulations, standards and best practices), has also been identified as one of MetricStream’s strong differentiators in the report. This portal is being used by over a million users globally.

MetricStream’s inclusion in the Leaders Quadrant comes close on the heels of MetricStream being named as a “Cool Vendor” in a separate Gartner report titled “Cool Vendors in Compliance and Risk Management, 2008” published in April 2008.² According to Gartner, "The products in this Cool Vendors research, although quite varied in their purpose and implementation, are similar in that they all offer real business benefits in performance, information quality and continuity of service."

Enterprises have been embracing MetricStream’s strategic solutions to address functions and regulations ranging from Enterprise Risk Management, Quality Management, Corporate Social Responsibility, Safety, SOX, FDA, FAA, FERC, NERC, OSHA, EPA, Banking, EH&S, SEC, IT Governance and several other compliance areas.
