Quarter unsure of their regulatory compliance needs

Written by Mark Evans

A poll from hybrid cloud solutions supplier Pulsant shows a lack of alignment when it comes to managing and maintaining compliance, with 28 per cent of IT decision unsure which regulatory frameworks their organisations need to align.

The research also showed that 83 per cent of IT decision makers said there was room for improvement when it comes to the tools and technologies used in managing compliance. The most cited added features include real-time alerts, better reporting, open integration with other compliance tools, and more comprehensive monitoring capabilities.

Other findings include 14 per cent of respondents are still using manual processes to maintain compliance, while 28 per cent of IT decision makers say that negative impact on customer and stakeholder trust is the primary disadvantage of not having an IT compliance programme in place.

Shares in the UK's biggest technology firm, Micro Focus International, have plunged after it warned of a sharper than expected fall in revenues and its chief executive resigned.
