Compliance is undoubtedly one of hottest, but perhaps one of the most misunderstood sectors within enterprise software. The complexity of corporate governance and a stricter regulatory environment are driving the market for solutions that help enterprises manage risk, satisfy compliance mandates, and meet government initiatives.

Though the scope of the term compliance varies from vendor to vendor, TripleTree views compliance as the broader set of business practices and technologies that seek to find solutions in the areas of enterprise risk management, corporate governance, IT governance, and compliance controls management. The vendor landscape is rapidly expanding as both emerging vendors and global technology leaders roll out solutions and product road maps for an expanding market. These solutions are engineered to address a flood of regulatory requirements in establishing good governance practices and industry standards which are now at the forefront in the highest levels within most organizations.

This report is the first in a series from TripleTree addressing the evolution of governance, risk and compliance market. At a high level, it assesses why compliance and risk management needs are top-of-mind for enterprises and where vendors are creating automated solutions to serve these evolving set of needs. It will conclude with a viewpoint of how an enterprise-wide compliance platform and ecosystem will evolve in what is currently a highly fragmented market.
