The article discuses the significance of compliance and its corresponding regulations towards various types of business. The author argues that the advent of compliance regulations have been advantageous to managers who wanted their business executives to concentrate on the crucial role of information technology in their respective organizations. However, the author further argues that managers find it challenging to bring their organization into compliance. Activities related to compliance consumes a significant portion of information technology resources on account of the fact that information technology personnel and managers have to consume more time compiling reports.
