    News Facts


--  Gartner, Inc. has positioned Oracle in the Leaders Quadrant in its
    2012 report "Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Governance, Risk and
    Compliance Platforms." (1)
--  Gartner Magic Quadrants position vendors within a particular market
    segment based on their completeness of vision and their ability to
    execute on that vision.
--  According to Gartner, "GRCM [GRC Management] is defined as the
    automation of the management, measurement, remediation and reporting
    of controls and risks against objectives, in accordance with rules,
    regulations, standards, policies and business decisions."
--  Gartner also states, "Most enterprises are also looking for solutions
    that support their strategies for more controls automation, including
    reporting from CCM [continuous controls monitoring] of ERP and other
    controls automation in the IT infrastructure that can be integrated
    into the EGRC platform," and as a consequence, "a trend of the
    convergence of Continuous Controls Monitoring with the EGRC platform
    is emerging, and there is also a slow trend toward the convergence of
    IT GRCM and EGRC platform solutions."
--  Oracle Fusion Governance, Risk, and Compliance applications deliver
    risk management embedded directly into key business processes to help
    minimize operational risk, increase process effectiveness and improve
    the bottom line. This integrated application suite automates risk and
    compliance management activities including the continuous monitoring
