Organizations who are not utilizing some form of compliance software or automation technology are more likely to face challenges, audits, and potentially bankruptcy. There is a noticeable trend towards compliance automation software. This is occurring because of the natural complexity of the compliance environment and that there are blatant differences in efficiency between the companies who utilize automated compliance software and those who do not.
In fact, auditing or measuring policy management may be more difficult in organizations without software, automation, internal resources or budget. Each of these facets are inner related and organizations that don't have a commercially developed centralized software with automation are more likely to indicate a lack of a dedicated budget for policy management thus eventually leading to compliance problems within the organization. Tracking your processes is extremely important, especially in the eyes of the government.
