Governance, Risk and Compliance Industry Thought Leaders Gather at Paisley User Conference

Evolution 2007 Showcases Best Practices and New Technologies for Paisley Clients

MINNEAPOLIS, MN -- (MARKET WIRE) -- March 21, 2007 -- Paisley, the leading provider of governance, risk and compliance (GRC) software solutions, today announced the success of its Evolution 2007 user conference, which was held this week at Disney's Yacht Club in Orlando, Florida. With record attendance this year, the sixth Paisley user conference offered training and thought leadership in the areas of internal audit, governance, risk management and compliance.

"Evolution 2007 acknowledges the important evolution occurring in the discipline of governance, risk and compliance," said Tim Welu, CEO of Paisley. "Our clients have clearly communicated that rather than managing GRC using a historical, silo-based approach, they are converging process disciplines and taking a broader view of governance, risk and compliance. Our user conference provided attendees with tools and strategies for implementing these expanding governance, risk and compliance requirements in a holistic way to realize greater efficiencies, reduce the cost of compliance and more effectively manage risk."

At Evolution 2007, Paisley provided the opportunity for clients to test drive its recently announced, next-generation GRC software solutions: Paisley Enterprise GRC™, a complete governance, risk and compliance solution for enterprise customers, and GRC on Demand™, a Software as a Service (SaaS) based governance, risk and compliance solution. Both products offer comprehensive governance, risk and compliance management functionality delivered in a single solution with profiles for financial controls management, operational risk management (ORM), enterprise risk management (ERM), internal audit, IT governance and compliance.

An exclusive event designed specifically for Paisley customers, Evolution 2007 included presentations, workshops and breakout sessions about trends and best practices in governance, risk and compliance provided by industry experts and Paisley partners. Evolution 2007 also featured the sharing of customer success stories from Paisley's roster of blue-chip clients.
