Why Should You Attend:

Compliance professionals face many challenges given the regulations they must support. It is difficult to maintain manual controls in organizations demanding speed and flexibility in business operations. Compliance software expands control over these processes regardless of geography or time. It automates many compliance requirements and allows compliance personnel to focus on exceptions rather than repetitive task executions.

Compliance users desire to integrate these system tools in their daily work but getting them is another matter. They must convince both their management chain and Information Technology boards of the solution value compared to costs. However, Compliance and IT may have differing objectives and constraints that can sink the project.

You can increase your chances of success if you methodically evaluate your requirements, prioritize them, understand how they fit in your company’s IT structure, and compare them to both external software solutions and existing solutions. The ten-step process outlined in this webinar leads to a case for action you can present to both Business and IT management for project approval.

Areas Covered in the Webinar:

  • The project charter-what will you do and who will support you?
  • The “as is” process-what are you doing today?
  • How do you determine, rank, and prioritize your key requirements?
  • What are your key care-abouts/must haves?
  • What is your current internal IT software inventory and infrastructure?
  • What solutions do other companies use (benchmarking)?
  • What compliance software solutions are available?
  • Will the desired solution meet your requirements (fit/gap assessment)?
  • The “to be” process-what will you be doing tomorrow?
  • What ROI/Case for Action will you present to business and IT management?

Who Will Benefit:

  • Compliance professionals
  • Compliance managers
  • Compliance executives

Topic Background:

Compliance software selection can be a difficult process due to cost, complexity, and divergent goals between internal business groups. Compliance personnel often have a desired solution that meets their needs, but they may have difficulty convincing management and IT decision makers to purchase the product. Your chances of success increase when you evaluate key requirements against potential solutions and document them in a methodical way. You must ensure the resulting solution will be supported by your Information Technology group based on their technical infrastructure and governing policies.

This webinar teaches participants how to determine what requirements are truly important for a compliant business process, evaluate them against potential software solutions, and document a persuasive case for action. Topics include ten specific steps starting from initial project support to preparing the management presentation for your desired solution.
