Managing Information Systems’ Risk
Organizations everywhere increasingly depend on information systems to accelerate their core business. Everything from finance, communications, human resources and payroll to customer relations, decision-making and manufacturing can come to a virtual standstill if information systems fail. And they do, in various ways. With millions of lines of code from different vendors interacting, information systems acting in unison are some of the most complex engineering projects of the business world. On top of that, businesses customize systems to fit their unique requirements. With all this complexity comes a risk. But risks can be managed by employing precise solutions. With huge experience in information systems, EPI-USE Labs has developed risk management services to help executive teams measure and manage information systems’ risk.
At the heart of EPI-USE Labs is a culture of driving value through innovation. Research and Development (R&D) is very important to the company, and it spends around 23% of its revenue on R&D activities. This single-minded drive helps it develop superior products and provide ongoing product updates. It makes sure that the company’s software is not only at the cutting-edge of technological advancement, but is aligned with their clients’ changing needs on an ongoing basis.
