    Well suited for general compliance, multiple initiatives, and integration with TeamMate. SAP GRC Process control may be better suited for an SAP environment. Oracle GRC may be better suited for an Oracle environment. Overall, BWise is a very cost effective, and flexible solution.

    Piwik PRO

    Piwik Pro Core is especially perfect for smaller businesses that want to have an alternative to Google's ecosystem. You can do a lot of the great stuff you can do with GA UA and GA4. But it still needs some tweaking. Especially for some bigger companies who have a lot of events, it would be great to have some smaller payment steps, as of right now it can be quite steep for some companies to pay the bill if you go above 500.000 events per month. Nevertheless, I believe this is one of the better options available when data ownership and privacy come to mind.

    Pros

    SAI Global

    • Great reporting tool (uses SAP Business Objects). It is quite flexible on types of reports that can be created and supported. Also the reporting consultants are very competent and nice.
    • Highly customizable solution: almost everything can be tailored to an organization's needs, assessments, audits, issues, recommendations, tasks, etc. However, there's a trade-off between customization and the integration of different areas of the organization.
    • Increases visibility and efficiency in the organization. BWise offers centralized repositories (catalogs) that can be easily accessed and used by everyone in the organization (e.g. Process catalog, Policies and Procedures catalog, Risks, Controls, Laws catalogs, etc.). Also, the application allows findings on controls tested by Audit to be automatically reflected in controls monitored by SOX for example, without the need for SOX to retest them. So one area can leverage on the work of other areas increasing operational efficiency.
    • Increases integration and avoids silos. By choosing the correct design (e.g. Risk Workshops instead of Open Assessments), one area can see and benefit from another areas' work. An example was mentioned above; another would be Operational Risk area considering the results of Business Continuity, Vendor Management, Info Security, etc. assessments when carrying out theirs. Additionally, processes can be integrated: when contracting a new vendor for instance, one can include questions about data confidentiality and usage of models in the Vendor risk assessment. Answers to these could then trigger Info Sec / Model Risk assessments.
    • Increases accountability. Application provides full audit/change log with the type of change, name of executor, and date of change.
    • Easier follow-up. BWise sends automatic emails with reminders to the people required to take action on an issue, assessment, etc.

    • It has an excellent activity panel through which you can have complete visibility of each activity you carry out.
    • It's great to track all interactions between users and track all conversions.

    Cons

    SAI Global

    • Integration with SAP for continuous control monitoring.
    • Control mapping to standards: ISO; COSO; COBIT; HIPAA; SP800_53 (NIST); FedRAMP; PCI_DSS; BITS; GAAP; AICPA; BSI; CCM; COPPA; CSA
    • Surveys.

    • Filtering: ip ranges, hostnames, regex. These are a few things that aren't possible like we are used to.
    • Tag Manager: not all tags/triggers are possible yet to what we are used to.
    • Are more progressive payment model: more little steps to buy a plan.
    • Custom dimensions: they weren't available but are now. But they aren't that user friendly yet as I'm used to.

        We had to contact the support several times in the beginning and they really took their time to explain the different functions in detail. So in terms of support I can definitely recommend Piwik PRO.

        Implementation Rating

        SAI Global

        The main issues were managing the internal conflicts and competing objectives, rather than the capability and implementation of BWise itself.

        Alternatives Considered

        SAI Global

        Wasn't personally involved in the vendor selection process. I am aware that one of the main drivers for selecting BWise was cost (I believe BWise total project cost was several times lower than MetricStream's).

        Piwik Pro's support for multiple sites saved me a lot of time. To view reports from numerous client sites, I'll have to access a single dashboard. Its digest reports save time and are simple enough for non-technical executives to understand. It gives us access to information about individual users that Google doesn't allow us to see as a whole. It will allow users to express their desires more clearly. As a result, this one is significantly more useful compared to other tools.
