Wynyard Group’s Risk Management Platform called Visionary by Leading Industry Analyst Firm
Auckland, 31 October 2012 - Wynyard Group’s Risk Management Platform, Methodware Kairos, has been positioned in the ‘Visionaries’ quadrant in Gartner’s latest Magic Quadrant report for Enterprise Governance, Risk and Compliance Platforms (GRC).
Gartner, a worldwide IT research and advisory firm, evaluated software vendors based on their ability to execute and completeness of vision in the GRC market.
The ability to integrate risk management, intelligence and investigations processes is becoming a clear competitive advantage as organisations are faced with increasing regulatory requirements and a stronger focus on anti-corruption and bribery in the aftermath of the global financial crisis.
Wynyard’s unique portfolio of intelligence-led software applications, including Methodware Kairos, is helping government, financial services and critical infrastructure providers connect the dots between the critical processes in Risk Management, Intelligence and Investigations.
CEO of Wynyard Group, Craig Richardson, says the business has received a lot of valuable and positive feedback indicating that Wynyard is meeting the market’s strategic focus on enterprise risk management and integration with powerful and intelligent business tools.
"Since bringing Methodware Kairos together with our powerful Wynyard Intelligence and Investigations products we are seeing new opportunities for integrated threat assessment and risk management. We can now manage risks that are rapidly growing in scale, complexity and impact such as national cyber security, homeland security and public safety as well as giving new tools to our corporate customers," said Richardson.
Richardson is encouraged by Gartner’s recognition of Wynyard’s vision and ability to execute placing it in the Visionaries quadrant for GRC which he believes further highlights its global presence and deep understanding of a market facing increasing challenges.
“The report highlights that differentiation today is about the ability to deliver advanced risk management functionality with analysis of the impact of risks on business performance, domain expertise in multiple highly regulated industries, and ease of use and configurability. This is definitely our sweet spot,” said Richardson.
