Camms Debuts as a ‘Strong Performer’ in The Forrester Wave™: Governance, Risk & Compliance Platforms, Q3 2021

By Adam Collins |

We are delighted that Camms has been evaluated as a strong performer in The Forrester Wave™ Governance, Risk & Compliance Platforms, Q3 2021 in our debut appearance.

Over the last 25 years, Camms has grown exponentially across the globe from APAC into EMEA and now thanks to a fast-growing new team we are offering the same great service to businesses across North America. This recognition from Forrester is an amazing accomplishment that we believe is driven by our extensive growth and enhanced capabilities within the GRC software market.

We believe a key differentiator for Camms is our capability to easily align GRC activity with overall business strategy enabling risk and compliance to be brought into the boardroom. The report from Forrester specifically noted that “Showing customers how GRC helps firms to meet goals, influence business decisions and board strategy, is in Camms’ DNA”.

Camms CEO, Warwick Kirby, added, “The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted the need for a more holistic approach to GRC; one that integrates it into the organisational strategy by making planning, and business decisions at board level. Elevating the risk discussion to the highest levels of the organisation improves visibility, accountability, transparency, and strategic decision-making.”

Forrester further acknowledges in its report that “Camms works well for firms with enterprise risk and operational risk requirements, especially those seeking to link risk to business strategy.” This is a key differentiator for us as we continue to support more organisations to future-proof their businesses and benefit from the digital transformation of GRC.

We believe this latest Forrester Wave™ signifies how much Camms has progressed: we’ve evolved from a lesser-known vendor emerging into the market, to a globally recognised and trusted GRC provider.

Camms Vice-President for EMEA, Daniel Kandola said “Camms debut listing represented a significant milestone for GRC buyers to discover how Camms is offering a trusted alternative solution to the market. It will allow customers to approach us with confidence in the future knowing exactly how we rank and what our strengths are.”

Forrester notes in its report that Camms strengths include “flexible risk registers, risk mitigation and remediation, trend analysis reporting, and a simple and intuitive UI.” We’ve had great feedback from customers and prospects on our new and improved user interface and the configurability of the solution which enables our clients to make changes to the ‘feature rich’ best practice solutions themselves without the need for costly professional services fees.

Overall, the report highlighted that firms are under extreme pressure to mitigate emerging risks while innovating at breakneck speed. This is causing risk professionals to lean even more heavily on their GRC platforms to drive faster and better strategic decisions. It further advises GRC software buyers to look for flexibility and usability, integration capabilities with internal and external tools, and frictionless reporting and visualisation – which we believe are all key strengths of Camms Risk.

This recognition from Forrester will allow for continued growth and investment in the Camms GRC solution and shows our presence among top providers in the Governance, Risk and Compliance space.
