Governance, Risk and Compliance (GRC) for life sciences companies represents a unique key results area to simplify, unify and optimize compliance investments by replacing fragmented 'layers and silos' with a clean and harmonized program.  When combined with risk-control and compliance matrices and mapping of the regulations against common control elements across multiple organizations and business units, a comprehensive, harmonized GRC solution can be achieved which provides full transparency into business risk and performance, fosters predictable business performance and ensures compliance sustainability.
