COVID-19 Impact

Proliferating Demand for Cloud-based Solutions to Aid Growth amid COVID-19 Pandemic

The Covid-19 crisis has formed a sense of terror worldwide. The disease's rapid spread has obligated governments and public enterprises to adopt strict lockdowns and social distancing measures. In organizations, compliance management teams and risk superiors are struggling to tackle this epidemic. In the present situation, risk management optimization over eGRC solutions has emerged as one of the finest solutions for enterprises to secure their business. Numerous enterprises are leveraging the proficiencies of their risk management teams by focusing on smart investments into risk managing technologies. Hereafter, enterprises are progressively implementing these solutions to aid employers in addressing exposures related to COVID-19.

Integration of the AI, IoT, and ML with eGRC Solutions to Aid Market Growth

The integration of technologies such as the Internet of Things (IoT), AI, machine learning (ML), cloud, and others, with eGRC solutions is expected to accelerate the demand for the solutions. The AI-enabled eGRC solutions are highly adopted across enterprises as they offer effective analysis features. The AI-enabled solutions assist in the enormous processing volumes of data that governments and enterprises have to deal with regularly. These solutions also provide features such as process optimization, reduced costs, improved effectiveness, and others. Key players in the market aim to advance their product portfolio by launching solutions based on AI and ML technologies.

  • For instance, in November 2019, Infosys Limited introduced "Infosys Governance Risk & Compliance (GRC)" - digital application suite. The solution is based on AI- and ML technologies. The solution offers a conversational interface and robotic process automation (RPA)-enabled control testing for the MetricStream platform to provide ease-of-use and enhanced user experience.


Increasing Stringency of Compliance Mandates for Enterprises to Drive the eGRC Market

The increasing complication of governing standards and the necessity to fulfill different protocols enforced by governing organizations are expected to generate huge demand for solutions. eGRC guidelines directly impact IT organizations and the associated commercial procedures. Organizations are concentrated on shifting from traditional directives and regulatory compliance rules such as the Sarbanes-Oxley Act (SOX) to advanced risk- and compliance-related regulatory authorities.

In the present economic situation, numerous organizations deploy solutions across their business units to advance their business road maps.

Continuing to comply with the guidelines and regulations, including GDPR, COBIT, HIPAA, and other states & federal directives, is becoming complex for organizations to escape operational loss. Failure to fulfill these regulations requirements can result in enormous business loss. Consequently, the increasing stringency of compliance directives is expected to drive the enterprise governance, risk, and compliance market growth in the upcoming years.

Following are some regulations and compliance acts in North America & Europe:

  • Control Objectives for Information and Related Technologies (COBIT)

  • The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)

  • The Federal Financial Institutions Examination Council (FFIEC)

  • Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA)

  • The Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (GLBA)

  • The Federal Information Security Management Act (FISMA)

  • The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS)

  • The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST)


Data Privacy and Information Security Concerns Associated with Cloud Solutions to Impede Growth

The eGRC market is developing at a prompt pace, owing to its multi-tasking capabilities across numerous verticals. The arrangement of regulatory policies and governance varies from enterprise to enterprise and country to country. Several countries, such as Iraq, Afghanistan, Nigeria, and others, do not have an allocated body to government regulatory guidelines. Such policies and guidelines must be implemented and controlled by considering multiple factors, such as micro and macro-economic risk factors coupled with the corporate requirements.

The lack of awareness of the solution in developing nations can be considered one of the restraining factors for the market's growth. Such factors are making it challenging for providers to provide solutions to the end-user requirements across developing nations.
