OpenPages to Exhibit at The Gartner Risk Management and Compliance Summit

WALTHAM, MA--(Marketwire - April 22, 2009) -

Who: OpenPages executives and product experts

What: The Gartner Risk Management & Compliance Summit

Where: Sheraton Chicago Hotel & Towers, Chicago, IL

When: April 29-May 1, 2009

OpenPages®, the leading provider of enterprise GRC solutions that optimize business performance, invites attendees to meet with company executives at The Gartner Risk Management & Compliance Summit to discuss how organizations can leverage risk management strategies to optimize business performance.

In order to ensure organizations are leveraging the GRC tools and technologies they currently have, they have to make a decision: use the tools to simply "check the box," and then worry about it again next year, or use the tools to create a more comprehensive risk management program. In taking this approach, organizations can start to move beyond compliance to an overall performance management-based approach to managing the business. Many companies are at this "inflection point," either unaware of the benefits of leveraging their GRC tools and technologies, or unsure of how to make this move. The Gartner Risk Management & Compliance Summit will focus on the "Inflection Point for Business Value," and will provide attendees with the direction, tools, workshops and program content around how to leverage their Governance, Risk and Compliance program to maximize their business performance.

During the event, OpenPages will showcase its leading risk and compliance (GRC) platform offering -- OpenPages 5.5 -- which leverages standards-based Web 2.0 technologies to deliver an enhanced user interface, more powerful security administration and advanced configuration capabilities. OpenPages 5.5 delivers an enterprise-wide management of risk by enabling firms to easily embed risk management into their everyday business processes and provides an unparalleled level of configurability to adapt to a company's unique risk management methodology.

"OpenPages is working closely with its customers to aid in the transition towards a risk-based approach to GRC and convergence of risk and compliance efforts, ensuring that its users proactively make adjustments that will prepare them to confidently meet new regulations that lie ahead," says Gordon Burnes, VP of Marketing at OpenPages. "Moving forward, companies must respond to risk by addressing all areas of risk that span the entire business; it will be critical for companies to break down the barriers of siloed risk management and to fully embrace an integrated approach."
