While the concept of reporting seems to be pretty straightforward, the term “report” can have a variety of meanings, so I’m always careful to validate my understanding so I don’t veer off in some unwanted direction. After all, reporting capabilities often represents the organization’s A-1 deal breaker requirement.
Too many decision makers purchase a tool based on the fact that it “can” automate GRC/other business processes, not on “how” it does it for your organization. Just like buying a volume maximizing shampoo will indeed clean your hair…beware the unintended consequences.
I recently had the pleasure of co-authoring an E-Book with GRC consultant and “process whisperer” Dan Plato. Dan was one of our most dynamic speakers at Onspring Connect 2017 with his presentation on solution design best practices. We’ve packaged up those best practices, along with a set of templates and samples, into a guide that’s available free on our website.
