Blueprint’s customers can leverage the UCF via the Common Controls Hub to set up rules for different types of data and application environments, ensuring compliance across multiple domains, laws, and standards.
(PRWEB) November 29, 2016
Blueprint, a global leader in driving IT project success by de-risking and accelerating complex software projects, and Unified Compliance, a leading provider of targeted, harmonized research for organizations to achieve and maintain compliance with industry, government, and best practice demands, have announced a strategic partnership that integrates the UCF Common Controls Hub™ compliance content with Blueprint’s requirements management and application delivery solutions. The combined Blueprint-Unified Compliance solution provides a comprehensive suite of pre-packaged requirements that address hundreds of regulations, standards, and frameworks.
“Blueprint is the first partner to leverage the UCF for a development environment,” said Craig Isaacs, CEO, Unified Compliance. “Blueprint’s customers can leverage the UCF via the Common Controls Hub to set up rules for different types of data and application environments, ensuring compliance across multiple domains, laws, and standards. Together, Blueprint and Unified Compliance will enhance efficiencies, improve collaboration, and speed delivery for these organizations.”
Businesses face increasing security and compliance conditions that must be considered in software development projects. However, these non-functional requirements are too often missed during development, especially as organizations transition to Agile. This leads to software that does not meet business needs, as well as budget overruns and project delays. Prepackaged and consolidated regulatory information helps all stakeholders ensure compliance throughout the application development life cycle.
Blueprint’s regulatory accelerators, powered by Common Controls Hub content will:
- Ensure organizations can account for and validate that compliance needs are being met
- Consolidate hundreds of regulations into easy-to-understand Common Controls that can be reused across projects
- Build better alignment between Business and IT
“We are very excited about our strategic partnership with Unified Compliance. Together, we are able to expand our collective benefit to organizations by ensuring stakeholder visibility related to regulations, reducing rework, and enabling project success,” said Dan Shimmerman, Chief Executive Officer, Blueprint. “The business value Unified Compliance provides closely aligns with our standard of excellence, and I know our customers will see tremendous benefit through this partnership.”

About Unified Compliance and the UCF
Since 1992, Unified Compliance has developed ground-breaking tools to support IT best practices, with a focus on solutions and processes that further the science of compliance, including harmonization methods, metrics, systems continuity and governance. The UCF was created by Dorian Cougias and his research partner, Marcelo Halpern of the international law firm Perkins Coie, which oversees all legal aspects of the UCF.
Honored twice with a GRC Innovation Award for Technical Innovation in Regulatory Intelligence for Compliance Management by independent governance, risk, and compliance (GRC) analyst firm GRC 20/20 Research, the Unified Compliance Framework® via the Common Controls Hub™ provides targeted, harmonized research on what an organization needs to do — and not do — to achieve and maintain compliance with industry, government, and best practice demands.
The UCF’s architecture was specifically designed for the delivery of all of the information necessary to establish governance methodologies. Customers using the UCF data via its SaaS front end, the Common Controls Hub™, can document and leverage the links between harmonized controls, records, assets (and their configurations), events, metrics, and roles.
