What You Should Do to Simplify Compliance

  • Clean Up Your Data by creating common definitions and identifiers that can be used by current and future applications.

  • Architect a System that will have consistent middleware and messaging protocols to connect disparate infrastructure.

  • Think Bigger than just one compliance project. Installing disparate systems for each regulation may hinder future projects.

  • Identify most important projects and see if they help your compliance efforts, as mandates dominate budget dollars.
