Next generation governance, risk, and compliance (GRC)

In today’s global marketplace, business leaders must not only deal with well-understood challenges — competition, increasing regulation and sustained volatility — but also the need to maintain profitability and growth in a world defined by rapidly-evolving disruptive technologies.


IBM Watson Regulatory Compliance is an innovative approach to managing regulatory compliance - using IBM OpenPages GRC Platform and leveraging IBM Watson for delivering cognitive regulatory compliance. This Watson solution has been “trained” by regulatory compliance experts from Promontory Financial Group to offer insights based on a comprehensive library of regulations.

How it works

Watson Regulatory Compliance delivers a single source for regulatory content coupled with a comprehensive control framework that allows users to highlight obligations pertinent to their organization, and to map each obligation to company controls. Understanding how a regulation impacts your organization is no longer a fragmented exercise with multiple spreadsheets, databases and documents. Instead, regulatory compliance is a streamlined and efficient process, driven by a consistent methodology and embedded in your GRC framework.

The benefits

By implementing an end-to-end cognitive regulatory compliance framework, you can:

  • Gain visibility, control, and decision support
  • Reduce fines, penalties and reputation risk from non-compliance
  • Maintain compliance across multiple regulations and your enterprise.
  • Improve operational efficiency
  • Reduce the cost of compliance
