Enterprises that purchase Sarbanes-Oxley targeted solutions in 2004 will retire or replace those systems by the end of 2005, according to Gartner Inc., Stamford, Conn."Enterprises that choose one-off solutions for each regulatory challenge that they face will spend 10 times more on compliance projects than their counterparts that take a proactive approach," says French Caldwell, research vice president at Gartner. "Although there are times when adopting a 'quick-and-dirty' solution may be necessary to meet deadlines, enterprises should avoid committing too much time, effort or data to such systems."

Gartner will provide additional analysis on the impact Sarbanes-Oxley compliance will have on enterprises during Gartner's Midsize Enterprise Summit East 2004, April 18-21 at the Gaylord Opryland Resort in Nashville, Tennessee. The Summit will include nearly 500 IT decision makers, more than 60 sponsors and vendors, as well as approximately 30 Gartner analyst presentations.
