Regulated Businesses Looking for EGRC Capabilities Should Consider Building them On SharePoint

The cost of implementing an Enterprise Governance Risk and Compliance (EGRC) solution can be substantial. Back in June, 2012, in a product information guide for RSA Archer published on SC Magazine’s web site, Peter Stephenson estimated starting costs for a “mid-range configuration” at $55K. RSA Archer is one of several products capable of provising consumers with the capability of managing an EGRC effort.

Organizations already equipped with SharePoint may be able to deliver EGRC capabilities, at a lower cost. Potential costs savings can be derived from an effort to simply add EGRC methods to a software platform already in place (SharePoint). We publish specialized sets of video training content on

Each of these video training sets is available for purchase for local viewing at an acquisition cost of $1995.00. They can be bundled in sets of 3 and purchased at a cost of $5385.00 per bundle. Therefore, at a total cost of approximately $15K an organization can acquire a comprehensive set of video training content to train existing personnel to build a solution within a SharePoint computing environment.

Our VisualSP Help System for SharePoint can be used to expose the training system to an enterprise at a cost of $8950.00 per SharePoint Server. So an organization with SharePoint 2013 already implemented and supported by 2 Servers can acquire a comprehensive training system, complete with content and the best method of exposing training content for user consumption, at a cost of some 35% less than a base acquisition cost for the RSA Archer system, as Mr. Stephenson has estimated it.
