"Increased scrutiny from regulatory authorities is stretching organisational resources and the bottom line," said Greg Bell, Global Cyber Security practice co-leader at KPMG. "Companies are looking to technology solutions for performance improvements and automation to increase efficiencies in their risk and compliance programs."

Marty Vanderploeg, CEO of Workiva, added: "Pairing our Wdesk platform with KPMG’s technology-risk specialists creates a unified, multidisciplinary solution and team to help customers streamline and automate a wide variety of complex risk, compliance and reporting processes. 

"By working together, we will help organisations gain insights, make data-driven decisions and ultimately drive better business outcomes."

A new KPMG report, Innovating Compliance through Automation, has found that 90% of CIOs and Chief Compliance Officers surveyed said they plan to increase spending for compliance automation in the coming years.
