Onspring named #1 GRC software

Gold medalists announced in 2020 InfoTech software reviews data quadrant

“Better research than anyone” leads you to the best GRC platform.

That’s a pretty bold claim to make when you’re in the ranking industry with the likes of the Gartner Magic Quadrant and Forrester reports. But Info-Tech Research Group (ITRG) bills itself as having just that: better research than anyone. That’s based on their rigorous, independent standards, which have now been applied to their 2020 Software Reviews Data Quadrant to determine the best GRC solutions of the year.

The findings in their Governance, Risk and Compliance (GRC) Data Quadrant report are collected from hundreds of real end-users, meticulously verified for veracity, exhaustively analyzed and put forth in clear, concise visuals.

No interpretive gymnastics.

No pay-to-play bias.

Each product is contrasted against all other vendors in their category. Why? To create a holistic, unbiased view of the product landscape. Similar to the People’s Choice Awards, ITRG Software Reviews Data Quadrant evaluates and ranks products based on feedback from actual IT and business professionals.

And the results for 2020 are in:

GRC Data Quadrant

The placement of a software product in the Data Quadrant indicates its relative ranking as well as its categorization.

Onspring is top choice in the Leader Quadrant for Governance, Risk and Compliance (GRC) software

What are the criteria for ranking the best GRC platforms? For ITRG pundits, the “software experience is shaped by both the experience with the software and the relationship with the vendor.” Evaluating enterprise GRC software against these two axes provides the best comprehensive understanding of the product and helps identify vendors that can deliver on both, like Onspring.
