Risk-monitoring software analytics platform Datamaran announced today the launch of Datamaran for Executives, a new solution aimed at automating external and ESG risk management for corporate leaders.

According to Datamaran, the new solution is designed to improve risk management, annual reporting, and Board oversight of external risks and opportunities. The platform scans the regulatory, media, and corporate disclosure environments on an ongoing basis, identifying and monitoring more than 400 external risk factors, including ESG, innovation, technology, and geopolitical issues. Targeted at C-suite executives, the solution helps integrate these increasing risks and opportunities into strategy by providing automated gap analyses and deep diagnostics of company-specific risks, backed by evidence of where the risks come from and how they evolve over time.

Marjella Lecourt-Alma, CEO and Co-founder of Datamaran, said:

“For too long, corporate leaders didn’t have access to useful ESG risk and opportunity data. The technology needed to understand these issues simply didn’t exist, leaving companies with an incomplete view of the wider risk landscape. For the past seven years, blue-chip companies have used Datamaran to achieve a data-driven materiality process. Today, we’re building on this vision to help executives tighten the reins on ESG and tackle the even bigger challenge of external risk management.”

Datamaran CTO and Co-Founder Jérôme Basdevant, added:

“This can only be achieved with the most advanced technology. On one hand, technology transforms something that was unstructured and difficult to assess into something that you can compare with other risks. On the other, it provides a structured approach to strategy building that is comprehensive, forward-looking, and timely. I’m proud of our R&D efforts, which reflect the ongoing and transparent collaboration amongst our team, clients, and partners.”
