DALLAS, TX (April 30, 2008)- Worksoft, Inc., a leading provider of solutions that accelerate deployments of SAP® applications, today announced that its flagship solution Worksoft Certify, can bridge the chasm between the processes of Governance, Risk and Compliance (GRC) and the processes of Application Life Cycle Management.

“Companies today are not only striving to improve their business processes, they must do so while grappling with compliance issues,” said Bruce Johnson, president and CEO of Worksoft. “Companies adhering to IT governance implications of Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX), or the required compliance of their respective industries, such as HIPAA and FDA, are looking for a way to shift governance from being a burden to helping them gain and sustain competitive advantages in a highly dynamic global economy. Worksoft can help manage the business process change events between the office of the CIO and the CEO/CFO by enabling timely collaboration and visibility.”

Worksoft Certify provides a single integrated platform for business process validation testing across the enterprise without relying on time-consuming and inefficient scripting processes.

Processes that span multiple technologies and platforms, such as SAP solutions, .Net, HTML, JAVA, and even the mainframe, can be effectively tested in a single, seamless test process. Worksoft Certify's unique “learn” feature maps each screen of the customer's application to automatically discover all of the functions it contains. This functionality helps organizations analyze the impact of change, which in turn ensures integrity and reliability of key IT controls for GRC.

In addition, Worksoft Certify provides a complete hierarchical representation of the business, helping create timely collaboration with compliance processes across the enterprise. And, by comparing an organization's current system configuration, custom code and transaction usage to the target system, Worksoft Certify helps organizations better determine where testing should be focused–thereby giving management visibility to that change.Further, by extracting data to address specific testing, training and development needs parlays into alignment of change event management, helping meet both regulatory compliance and operational performance demands.
