Half-Year Successes Fueled by Bookings Growth, Significant Product Innovation, and Industry Accolades

WALTHAM, MA–(EMWNews – August 7, 2008) – OpenPages, the leading provider of enterprise GRC management solutions that optimize

business performance, today announced extraordinary momentum and success in

product introductions, significant product innovations and industry

recognition for the company’s technological excellence.

As market forces drive risk management demands, OpenPages is bolstering its

GRC offerings to help users more effectively address risk management

demands across the enterprise. In April, OpenPages announced:

--  OpenPages 5.5 -- the newest version of the industry leading GRC



--  OpenPages Hosting -- a new offering that delivers fast time-to-

    deployment without having to rely on in-house IT departments to deploy the

    servers, storage and other resources.


In June, OpenPages received a patent for its highly

configurable GRC platform, further demonstrating the uniqueness of the

company’s technology and its commitment to product innovation. Building on

its award winning GRC platform, OpenPages innovated with the introduction

of OpenPages EHS — an enterprise risk management

solution that automates the process of identifying, measuring and

monitoring environmental, health and safety risk.

In addition to platform and solution enhancements, OpenPages was recognized

    annual Compliance Software Survey 2008, increasing its position in

    Compliance Monitoring and Control, GRC, and Regulatory Reporting and

    ranking consistently in first position for Sarbanes-Oxley for the second

    year running.


The first half of 2008 also proved to be a successful one in terms of

customer commitment and adoption. OpenPages hosted the second annual

Executive ERM Forum in May where leading CROs, senior risk and compliance

executives and thought leaders gathered to discuss the latest risk

management trends and best practices. In addition, OpenPages recently

announced that FirstRand Banking Group selected OpenPages ORM to reduce

Basel II capital allocation costs and InterContinental Hotels Group PLC

(IHG), one of the world’s largest hotel groups, selected OpenPages’

Enterprise GRC Solution to assist in optimizing the company’s global risk

inception and the first half of 2008 represented performance consistent

with that tradition,” said Michael J. Duffy, president & CEO, OpenPages.
