EH&S Performance Management for Governance, Risk and Compliance

Business complexity, along with increased regulatory and market security, is driving organizations to adopt a structured approach to governance, risk and compliance. Read this paper to learn how performance management can play a strategic role in risk management initiatives to help manage and reduce business risk.

With better knowledge of financial, operation and risk performance, businesses can tighten controls to comply with various regulations such as Sarbanes-Oxley. However, disconnected information systems are forcing many organizations to make decisions with less than-optimal data. Learn how performance management integrated with business intelligence can:

  • Standardize performance measurement
  • Deliver consistent information
  • Improve communication
  • Enable better and faster decision making
  • Provide actionable information
  • Align business operations
