RSA Archer ROI

We have seen ROI with this solution, although not directly. Before Archer, we needed people to come in to perform services for us. For example, if we needed to do risk management then we needed someone. They had to create the document, the module, and the framework, and then they come and do the assessment themselves. They are the ones that actually do the questioning, get the results, and give us the reports. That, itself, costs a lot of money because we have many services in IT. Our on-premise expertise is aware of most of the things that are on the ground, but we just don't have the capacity to deal with all of them. So, we do it in small batches, here and there. We want people for cloud, people for risk management, people for audit, and people for compliance. Each of those different modules has a different price tag on it. With this tool, once it was built and designed, we were able to use our own internal resources. We don't need to go outside. All of the questions are already there. The policies and procedures are already built-in, and you just need to tweak them a bit. So, it helps us just in understanding what's there, on the ground, and then we can mark our territory from there. Overall, it saves us a lot of money to be spent if we are taking care of these services individually. View full review »
