Zaplet is a Breakthrough Open Cloud Platform and Partner Ecosystem for Building and Deploying GRC Applications
Mumbai, (GNS) : MetricStream, the innovative Governance, Risk, and Compliance (GRC) solutions provider, announced the launch of its highly-anticipated new offering Zaplet, an open and flexible cloud platform and partner ecosystem that harnesses the power of Platform-as-a-Service to help developers and organizations quickly build, deploy, manage, and even sell a variety of specialized GRC applications. Each app can be designed to have its own unique data models, workflows, content, reports, dashboards, and templates that are tailored to address specific risk management and regulatory compliance requirements.
Through Zaplet, organizations will be able to quickly browse, choose, and purchase certified GRC apps in a seamless manner. They will also be able to collaborate with other customers to share app information and reviews, and provide a rating for each app. In turn, developers will be able to build, market, and distribute their apps with customer demos, free trials, and upgrades. They will also be able to access a wide set of resources in the form of developer kits, training materials, certification programs, and collaboration forums designed for the Zaplet developer community.
“Zaplet represents MetricStream’s commitment to continual innovation and differentiation. We look forward to formally launching Zaplet at the MetricStream GRC Summit 2013,” said Anindo Banerjea, Vice President Engineering at MetricStream. “Across the world, the cloud has opened up tremendous opportunities to collaborate and develop truly innovative and ground-breaking GRC apps. We are so excited to lead this revolution with Zaplet, which harnesses the best of today’s cloud technology and developer community. Organizations, developers, and partners alike can easily and affordably build and sell apps that enable organizations to successfully manage their complex risk and compliance challenges.”
Zaplet was recently recognized at the 2013 GRC Technology Innovation Awards which is hosted by GRC 20/20 Research. Commenting on the awards, Michael Rasmussen, Chief GRC Pundit at GRC 20/20 Research said, “How an organization leverages technology says a lot about the maturity of its GRC approach. What’s exciting is that there is such a diverse range of innovative GRC technologies today. Many are expanding into completely new areas – and that’s what we wanted to recognize through our innovation awards. We received over 57 submissions – out of which MetricStream’s Zaplet emerged as a winner for its ability to deliver “a GRC marketplace” for the exchange of ideas, content, and apps. We are excited to see how Zaplet grows and develops. In fact, we believe that it could be the Force.com of GRC.”
