MetricStream’s industry-leading GRC platform, which powers the GRC programs of some of the largest and most reputable financial  institutions worldwide, has been awarded the “GRC Platform of the Year”  at’s 2013 Operational Risk & Regulation Awards.

“We are delighted to be recognized at the Operational Risk & Regulation  Awards,” said Vidyadhar Phalke, Chief Technology Officer at  MetricStream. “This award validates the strength and sophistication of  MetricStream GRC Platform in enabling financial institutions to build  better risk and compliance frameworks in order to manage ever evolving  regulatory and risk  management requirements. Today, our platform continues to grow, adding new capabilities for accessibility across tablets and smart  phones and functionalities for advanced analytics and statistical  modeling. We also ensure a low total-cost-of-ownership with our  cost-effective cloud hosting service models and expedited time to go-live.”
The 2013 Operational Risk & Regulation Awards come at a time when  financial institutions are increasing their focus on sustainable  mitigation strategies around operational risk, and are coping with  increased regulatory pressures, fines, and penalties for any deviations.  According to, “Financial institutions are keen to avoid being  next into the headlines, leading to more focus and higher spending on  internal controls – and the same is even true in other sectors.” Many  large organizations are appointing Chief Risk and Compliance Officers,  while smaller organizations are taking advantage of cloud technologies  and subscription models to make their GRC programs more cost-effective,  reports

It enables  organizations to closely track incidents, loss events, and near misses,  and proactively use this information to strengthen GRC measures.
