Compliance: Not Just a Necessary Evil; Good for Business

- April 18, 2017 - 2 Comments

Does corporate compliance have you in a conundrum? Sure, we all dread compliance as we dread doing our taxes every year. It takes time and effort. It and keeps us away from the interesting stuff in our jobs — like innovating, collaborating, and growing the business. After all, employee productivity equals business value.

In fact, a Global Center for Digital Business Transformation study notes that healthcare has the potential to capture $838 billion in digital value from worker productivity using technologies such as mobility and video collaboration. In retail and banking, the potential is $550 billion and $299 billion.

Perhaps you are working to capture all that productivity value from Cisco Spark. And you need to address myriad compliance challenges.

  • If you are in retail, you know Payment Card Industry (PCI) compliance is complex. It is ever-evolving with all the entities involved: the banks, Web hosts, shopping carts, e-commerce, merchants, and so on.
  • In healthcare, you may be facing several daunting hurdles to meet HIPAA compliance with the adoption of digital patient records, increased regulation, and the growing demand for information.
  • Financial institutions have made strides toward improving internal control processes since the Sarbanes-Oxley Act became law 12 years ago. Yet, new challenges emerge as institutions work to comply with evolving regulatory requirements and industry guidelines.

Despite all this complexity, have you considered that compliance may actually be good for your business? Many studies have found that companies with strong governance and compliance cultures outperform their counterparts. Compliance can actually boost the bottom line.

    Interesting use case for Cisco Spark. I wish this and many of the other blog posts were more technical in nature and not such a sales pitch. Has Cisco checked who follows their blogs?

      Peter ~ Thanks for taking the time to comment on Lowell's post. We try to put together a balance of topics and technical levels to address the different audiences of our collaboration blog. We do definitely look at metrics to see what content is best resonating with our readers -- and appreciate feedback like yours. You'll find more of the nitty-gritty technical content in the community areas of the site than in this forum. Thanks again. ~ Kim @ciscokima
