OpenPages Unveils Governance Platform

OpenPages launches a major upgrade of its software platform for governance, risk and compliance management.

OpenPages on Monday launched a major upgrade of its software platform for governance, risk and compliance management.

OpenPages Governance Platform 5.0 delivers a common repository for the software modules that run on top. In addition, all of the modules -- two previously released and two new -- have been rewritten to conform to the same code base. The platform is based on the latest Java 2 enterprise standards.

The repository provides interoperability among the modules through a shared service tier for functionality such as workflow, security, and reporting and auditing. "You get a unified view," Brian Cleary, vice president of marketing for Waltham, Mass.-based, OpenPages, said. The repository also offers full integration between the modules by housing all libraries for best practices, controls, processes and policies.

The platform includes document and content management systems, and it can be configured and customized to an organization without having to write code. "It's not rigid," Cleary said.

In releasing the platform upgrade, OpenPages launched two new software modules, one that offers general compliance management and the other IT governance. Previously released modules were for financial controls management and operational risks management.

The IT governance module enables companies to map IT services to business processes to help ensure that best practices are followed through an IT organization. The general compliance management software provides a common store and distribution mechanism for policies and best practices related to government regulations, and other compliance issues.

Pricing, which varies by module, starts at between $2,000 and $3,000 per user.
