As internal stakeholders and regulators of financial institutions continue to demand faster and better risk analytics at both the desk level and enterprise level, legacy risk infrastructures are being stretched to the breaking point. Unfortunately, enterprise risk managers, CIOs and others dealing with enterprise analytics face a bewildering array of recommendations and technology options for overcoming the challenges their legacy infrastructures face.
In this context, it is more important than ever to make globally optimal design decisions as opposed to addressing each business need in isolation. But how do firms make these design changes in practice? Is the status quo really that bad? Do the potential rewards of a “Risk 2.0” infrastructure even justify the cost and growing pains of building it?
On Wednesday, August 26th featured speaker Satyam Kancharla, Chief Strategy Officer of Numerix, examined common risk infrastructure challenges and presented battle-tested ideas for creating the next generation analytics infrastructure.
