Use Case #1: Risk Aggregation
One of the most significant lessons learned from the last major global financial crisis was that banks’ information technology and data architectures were largely inadequate to support the broad management of financial risks. Many banks lacked the ability to aggregate risk exposures and identify concentrations quickly and accurately at the bank group level, across business lines and between legal entities. Aggregated views of data lacked accuracy and granularity and involved manually intensive processes that were prone to error.
Risk concentrations should be better identified and understood, allowing effective mitigation or diversification strategies. Exposure management should no longer be fragmented, aiding trading efficiency and improving margins. Furthermore, capital markets firms require the introduction of enterprise limits to ensure that trading strategies are aligned with appetite.

Use Case #2: Front Office Consolidation
Until recently, low interest rates had reduced margins in transaction banking, so firms looked to open up different lines of revenue. Volatility and uncertainty in the markets has been stifling corporate finance activity. Recessionary pressures are likely to result in some major credit losses, which will inevitably impact earnings. Meanwhile most banks are largely relying on legacy technology solutions which are accompanied by very high fixed costs. The combination of these factors has created a ‘perfect storm’ for sell-side firms in the front office.
Investment banks want to avoid risky, complex software deployments taking many years to install. They also wish to break down the silos wherever possible, consolidating and integrating technology services to reduce maintenance costs and complexity. Greater efficacy of hedging and risk management processes is difficult to achieve with siloed technology.
