Ever tried to manage regulatory assessments or projects - e.g. for GDPR, CCPA or POPIA - with large spreadsheets and dozens of documents? Collaborated with various stakeholders and consolidated their inputs? Created macros and templates to boil down the results in management reports and dashboards? Sent them around every week just to find out they were outdated a few hours later? And don’t even ask for auditing – “Who decided this is not relevant about a year ago?” “How can we ensure we did not miss anything?” “What did we discuss regarding this article?” – Spreadsheets, really?

Watch the short video Do you still manage GDPR in Spreadsheets? Try GDPR & ALM Octane – A Perfect Match! - ALM Octane and ALM/QC make it much easier to work with the GDPR, CCPA or POPIA: You can easily collaborate with stakeholders, search & filter for specific terms, use dashboards & analytics to measure and manage progress. It automatically creates audit trails so you can validate and explain how you analyzed and implemented GDPR requirements in your organization. ALM Octane and ALM/QC contain project management capabilities and many more very useful functionalities out of the box.

The Content Packs also contain links to the Micro Focus portfolio. Use it to answer questions like “I have to implement pseudonymisation – which products support that?” or “We already use Micro Focus Content Manager – which regulatory requirements and use cases can we address with it?”.

Please see the User Guide (download below) - it explains these use cases in more detail.

ALM Octane and ALM/QC with the Content Packs support various processes around GDPR, CCPA & POPIA and can be used by consulting firms and end users.
