Our client was a global banking and financial services operating in more than 50 countries. The existing system for risk reporting and analysis was severely hindered due to lack of performance, scalability and flexibility, thus, subjecting the banking behemoth to increased exposure to market and counter-party credit risks and regulatory pressures. The bank’s objective was to re-engineer their fragmented and disparate reporting infrastructure to a more robust, scalable and cost effective using SAS’s High Performance Risk Solutions.
CoreCompete was asked to develop a logical data model that aligns with front-office market risk management processes, ETL that manages the data flow from the different risk data sources and a phased deployment of SAS in-Memory and Hadoop based visualization and analytics solution to provide dynamic Reporting and Analysis capabilities.
CoreCompete delivered an end-to-end Risk reporting SAS environment with Visual Analytics and High Performance Grid that reduced data latency, risk aggregation, reporting and visualization challenges and provided high availability and load balancing of SAS services. We created report layouts and provided visualization and interactive reports with high information density. We also educated and trained client’s team for a smooth transition and adoption of the system by close to 200 risk analysts.
