Oracle GRC: Dead Product or Brave New World?

Oracle GRC support event
Oracle GRC support event

If you run Oracle GRC, you will have to make some important decisions in the upcoming months. Oracle will stop providing major updates to GRC software and support is very limited. You should be asking yourself, “Do you really want to be running your business on outdated software that was architected 20 years ago?”

Oracle customers are facing new challenges to protect data against emerging cyber threats and ransomware. Many customers are considering options to move some or all their business to digital platforms such as Oracle ERP Cloud, Workday, NetSuite, ServiceNow with advanced security from leading IAM providers like Okta, SailPoint, Microsoft Azure, etc. How can you do this "safely?"

SafePaaS is hosting a 4-part webinar series to help customers understand their options so that they can prepare for the future.

We are delighted to announce our upcoming virtual GRC conference “Oracle Governance, Risk and Compliance: Dead Product or Brave New World?” hosted by SafePaaS, the team who wrote the Governance, Risk and Compliance Handbook for Oracle Applications.  This 4-part webinar series spread out over 6 weeks starting September 23 will educate and help organisations around the globe using GRC software understand that GRC goes way beyond just financial reporting.

Join this virtual event and get access to industry leaders who witnessed the beginnings of GRC and can equip you with everything you need to know about GRC and beyond to take your business to new heights.

The events will be streamed live for all attendees (there will be an on-demand option for all registrants who are unable to join us for the live events.) Registration is for individual events which are listed below. We recommend attending at least the first three sessions in order to get the most out of this event.

60-minute panel discussion (50-minute discussion plus 10-minute Q&A)

Oracle GRC end of life

GRC software is reaching 20 years of maturity, and its fourth generation.

GRC emerged in the early 2000’s with the growing need to align Governance risk and compliance activities after the well-publicized, meteoric rise and fall of major businesses. In the last decade, the need to integrate GRC on a unified platform has been realized by many organizations to streamline functional areas of GRC under a single platform.

In 2020 organizations that remain on outdated GRC software will be unable to mitigate emerging risks, face operational inefficiencies and lose competitive advantages as a result of digital transformation including big data, mobile devices, the Internet of Things (IoT), and social media—all of which contribute to an expanding risk profile. These include cyber concerns, data exposure, and privacy issues.

SafePaaS has brought together a cross-section of GRC industry leaders to examine the landscape of GRC over the last two decades, how it’s evolved and where it should be heading.
