Syrinx Consulting to Host Panel on Achieving Organizational Compliance and IT Governance With Microsoft SharePoint 2007

WALTHAM, MA--(Marketwire - August 5, 2008) - Enterprise and mid-size companies are challenged with complying to corporate policies and government regulations associated with governance of documents, records and processes. Many lines of business, including IT, have groups operating with ad hoc processes and undocumented procedures. Executives have a growing need to reign in business units and teams to standardize key document lifecycles, store and protect corporate records, and enforce compliance processes.

Microsoft Office SharePoint Server (MOSS) 2007 presents a platform for companies to gain better control and predictability over business line areas, including IT, finance, and R&D. As a collaborative knowledge and workflow platform, MOSS can safeguard the information supporting a company's compliance program and reporting protocols. Integrated protection and control features manage data access and authorization. Further, using MOSS to support IT Infrastructure Library (ITIL) initiatives indirectly delivers compliance support.

--  Andrew Gelina, CEO, Syrinx (Moderator)
--  Peter Duffey, Partner Technical Specialist, Microsoft
