Meta Byte Technologies, a leading next-generation technology consulting company, has signed a partnership deal with MetricStream, a leader in governance, risk, and compliance (GRC) and quality management solutions.
The deal is aimed at equipping Middle East-based organisations across industries with the most sophisticated risk, compliance, and quality management solutions, said a statement.
The companies in the Middle East are currently facing an increasing volume, velocity, and variety of risks, mounting regulatory pressures, increasing scrutiny from stakeholders, and the rising incidence of issues related to quality.
As such, organisations are looking for advanced, forward-looking solutions that can help them strengthen and streamline their governance, risk management, and compliance programmes.
Salil Dighe, chief executive officer of Meta Byte, said: “Risk, compliance and quality management programmes are core components of any business, and help guide business strategy and decision-making.
“As such, it is critical that organisations identify, assess, and manage their risk, compliance, and quality management programmes in a more consistent and streamlined manner.”
“Together, Meta Byte Technologies and MetricStream will enable companies in the region to establish and strengthen integrated risk, compliance, and quality management programmes by providing next generation technology solutions and expert guidance,” he said.
Meta Byte offers its clients experience and expertise in information risk and compliance management. It helps establish ownership and accountability, as well as helps guide underlying risk management and compliance processes.
Through this partnership, MetricStream will provide its leading edge technology that will enable companies to integrate, streamline, and automate their GRC and quality management programmes in order to drive superior business performance.
Shankar Bhaskaran, vice president and general manager of International Business Operations at MetricStream, said: “Through this partnership, we will be able to further support Middle East based companies in their endeavour to build more integrated and sustainable governance, risk management, compliance (GRC) and quality management programmes.
“MetricStream works with leading organisations around the world, and therefore understands the unique GRC and quality management challenges faced by them today. Our solutions are designed to help organisations overcome their challenges and pursue new opportunities by blending content, technology, and best practices.”
