The Risk Management Software Standard

Programs such as US Airforce, US Army and NATO, are all supported by Defense Prime Contractors including Northrop Grumman, BAE Systems, General Dynamics, EADS, Moog Aerospace, SAIC, Pratt & Whitney, Elbit Systems, Oshkosh, Curtiss-Wright and Thales who all benefit from utilising Sword Active Risk Manager.

How can Sword GRC help you?

Aerospace & Defense face some of the most complex risk management requirements. Whether it is enterprise risk management or project risk management, having a single view of risk across projects, programs and the entire organization is essential to understanding how your organization is operating and improvements can be made to boost its effectiveness and efficiency. Projects need to be able to deliver on time, on budget and perfectly to specification – without exception. Across the organization, reputation for performance excellence is more important now than it has ever been and every organization needs to know where their biggest risks lie.

Active Risk Manager (ARM) is the de facto standard for the aerospace & defense industry.

ARM meets all DoD requirements for qualitative and quantitative risk management.

Reduce unanticipated costs and schedule slippages – ARM provides a full lifecycle risk management system to proactively identify and analyze risk at the beginning of a program or project.

ARM provides a comprehensive, real-time view of risk spanning your entire portfolio of programs.

ARM makes it easier to identify and share best practices by providing a system of record for risk management, eliminating complex spreadsheets.
