Risk Management & Analytics
Regulatory oversight and increasingly complex asset classes are revolutionizing risk management, compliance, security and data management in today’s financial services industry. Financial institutions need greater real-time insight into business exposures, and their potential impact within a line-of-business as well as holistically across the enterprise, to mitigate risk, improve profitability and comply with regulatory requirements.
Financial institutions must manage greater data complexity with more intensive data analysis to gain the flexibility they need to respond to new challenges and opportunities in real-time. This agility requires efficient access to computing resources for computationally intensive analysis. To improve productivity, solutions must be easily accessible to all employees, from traders and risk managers to IT and application development staff, regardless of whether they are spreadsheet users, actuaries running stochastic models, or developers involved in the programming of new computationally intensive financial applications.
Financial institutions need a flexible and scalable infrastructure that can be extended to across the enterprise. In addition to reducing complexity, this approach helps firms achieve a balance between improved risk management, improvements in service, and reductions in cost. Microsoft solutions compute, monitor and report real-time risk exposures. Our approach makes risk analytics pervasive in employees' everyday activities with tools that are seamlessly integrated into existing applications and systems. Microsoft and its rich ecosystem of partners provide value through:
