CSC LAUNCHES ENTERPRISE COMPLIANCE AND SUSTAINABILITY SOLUTION FOR THE CHEMICAL INDUSTRY
News Release -- September 14, 2009
New Offering Provides Holistic Approach to Managing Regulatory Mandates
FALLS CHURCH, Va., Sept. 14 -- CSC (NYSE: CSC) today announced the launch of its Enterprise Compliance and Sustainability offering, a solution designed to help companies address multiple regulatory compliance mandates, while streamlining costs and reducing risk associated with implementing numerous enterprise-wide programs.
The solution enables companies to collect regulatory information from across the enterprise, verify it and then distribute timely and accurate reports to the many regulatory agencies that monitor their business activities. A typical end-to-end implementation includes program management, strategy, business process, technology and lifecycle support disciplines.
"As environmental and safety regulations become more comprehensive and stringent around the world, many companies are struggling with business processes and technologies that are inappropriate to support efficient enterprise compliance," said Bob Welch, president of CSC's Chemical, Energy and Natural Resources Group. "To create competitive advantage and ensure business continuity, chemical executives need a comprehensive approach to address mandates concerning chemical substance registration and tracking, green house gas emissions, air, waste and water management, and cyber security throughout the compliance lifecycle - from strategy to design, implementation and operation."
The offering includes a diagnostic assessment of current business processes, infrastructure and organization, deployment of a business solution optimized to meet client needs and follow-on lifecycle support.
"Meeting compliance requirements in the process manufacturing industries has often been sub-optimized by a piecemeal approach with little rationalization of business processes, IT architecture and data model designs, data management and reporting facilities," said Kenneth Brant, director, Manufacturing Research, Gartner Inc. "Meanwhile, regulatory requirements are driving up compliance costs at a time when chemical producers cannot afford any operational inefficiencies. Now, more than ever, compliance solutions that address a broader, more dynamic range of requirements, while leveraging IT assets and information management views across the enterprise, are sorely needed."
