Gold standard: Institute of Risk Management publication ranks Risk Decisions’ Predict! at top of risk management software maturity curve.

The survey, published in Risk Management Professional, the IRM’s official magazine, takes a look at risk software from an ERM (Enterprise Risk Management) perspective. The survey’s aim is to help risk professionals align their organisation with an appropriate provider.

Risk Decisions’ risk management software suite Predict! received the gold standard accolade following the survey, which ranks products on a maturity curve. A gold standard system identifies Predict! as supporting advanced processes such as Monte Carlo analysis.

On the topic of choosing a tool, IRM director Alex Hindson says in the report ‘The most important consideration is outputs.’ ‘The key thing is reporting, he adds. ‘You need to be able to get the information out again and cut, dice and link information. You need to be able to provide different formats and structures to meet the needs of boards, risk committees and risk specialists.’

Risk Decisions Business Development Director Fiona Racher agrees. ‘For risk management to deliver value, organisations need easy insights into their risk exposure and quick access to reports that enable them to make strategic business decisions. This is the rationale behind Predict!’s comprehensive analysis and reporting capability: powerful  filtering, ad-hoc reporting (Predict! Risk Intelligence and Excel exports), integration with corporate BI tools such as SharePoint (Predict! Connect), and Monte Carlo analysis (Predict! Risk Analyser).’
