The National Law Journal has named Lucio de Risi, CEO of MEGA,
as one of 50 worldwide leaders in governance, risk and compliance (GRC).
This is the first time The Journal has recognized individuals in
the GRC arena. The recipients were selected from hundreds of risk and
compliance specialists, technologists, legal professionals and others
involved in GRC programs.
“These are people who have truly ‘moved the needle’ in facilitating
change in GRC, whether it be technological developments, operational
efficiencies, marketing and business development breakthroughs, or
research accomplishments,” noted Scott Pierce, publisher of The
National Law Journal and Legal Times. “Governance, Risk and
Compliance Trailblazers & Pioneers catalogs the extraordinary
accomplishments of these ground breaking thinkers.”
de Risi was selected for his innovation in creating GRC software that
integrated with solutions already used by organizations to manage
enterprise complexity and improve business results, thus introducing
risk and compliance management activities into everyday business
“This connection makes it possible for organizations to eliminate the
independent silos of information and activity that are costly and
prevent proper and efficient risk management. We saw early in the
maturation of GRC programs that these isolated repositories had to be
eliminated. It is the only way that executives can deal with today’s
digital disruption that increases enterprise complexity and compounds
risks,” explained de Risi. “To be truly efficient, companies needed a
way to unite the management of previously separate areas: business
processes, IT, and risk and compliance.”
de Risi launched MEGA International in 1991. Today, the company works
with organizations around the world, including many Fortune 500
companies, on business transformation and enterprise
governance, using innovative advanced technology solutions offered
on the company’s unique HOPEX platform. Customers
include Aetna, The College Board, Nissan, Procter & Gamble, Starwood
Hotels, Swiss Federal Railways, and Walgreens.
The company has been honored numerous times by organizations for its
innovation and industry leadership and is often cited by industry
analysts as a groundbreaker.
“MEGA’s unique vision is to help customers achieve operational
excellence with the combined capabilities of its enterprise architecture
and GRC technologies. MEGA has showcased its superb risk and control
management, GRC management and audit management capabilities,” according
to The Forrester Wave™: Governance, Risk, and Compliance Platforms,
GRC 20/20 Research, founded by noted GRC expert Michael Rasmussen,
recognized MEGA as the winner of its 2013
GRC Technology Innovator Award.
Gartner Inc. has named MEGA as a leader in its EA Magic Quadrant reports
for five consecutive years, including the most recent, the Magic
Quadrant for Enterprise Architecture Tools (October 2013).
Additional citations include Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for Governance,
Risk and Compliance Platforms (September 2013), The Forrester
Wave: EA Management Suites, Q2 2013 and Continuity Insurance & Risk
Magazine’s Risk Assessment Software Report.

Creating replica copies to tolerate a certain number of failures is easy, but very expensive at cloud-scale. Conventional RAID has lower overhead, but it is limited in the number of failures it can tolerate. And the management is like herding cats (overseeing capacity, rebuilds, migrations, and degraded performance). Download Slide Deck: ▸ Here

In this strange new world where more and more power is drawn from business technology, companies are effectively straddling two paths on the road to innovation and transformation into digital enterprises.
The first path is the heritage trail – with “legacy” technology forming the background. Here, extant technologies are transformed by core IT teams to provide more API-driven approaches. Legacy systems can restrict companies that are transitioning into digital enterprises. To truly become a lea...

Just over a week ago I received a long and loud sustained applause for a presentation I delivered at this year’s Cloud Expo in Santa Clara. I was extremely pleased with the turnout and had some very good conversations with many of the attendees. Over the next few days I had many more meaningful conversations and was not only happy with the results but also learned a few new things. Here is everything I learned in those three days distilled into three short points.

There are several IoTs: the Industrial Internet, Consumer Wearables, Wearables and Healthcare, Supply Chains, and the movement toward Smart Grids, Cities, Regions, and Nations. There are competing communications standards every step of the way, a bewildering array of sensors and devices, and an entire world of competing data analytics platforms. To some this appears to be chaos.
In this power panel at @ThingsExpo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, Bradley Holt, Developer Advocate a...

Architecture is the key that underpins and ties all these efforts together. In the digital age, it’s important to invest in architecture, extend the enterprise footprint to the cl...

The vision of a connected smart home is becoming reality with the application of integrated wireless technologies in devices and appliances.
