This quote came from an article in CFO magazine by John Goff called The Emergence of Convergence.  It’s a very well-written analysis of an emerging software genre called GRC (governance, risk and compliance managed with one application.)  I really recommend you make time to read it.

My other favorite quote from this article: “Application vendors, who cling to marketing hooks the way cats cling to curtains, have been only too happy to cater to this desire [to converge software].

When I first read the quote from John Wheeler about “going on faith regarding the vendor’s promises,” I thought “uh oh.” But the vendor, OpenPages, came through. That’s reason enough to read the article.
