Whitepaper: Big Data Analytics Guide 2012

by SybaseOct 16, 2012

What's the big deal with Big Data? Today, organizations of all types and sizes are inundated with enormous data sets from various internal and external sources-from transactional data to unstructured data from social media and other sources. Organizations can struggle to get ahead of-or out from under-the increasing piles of data flooding into their businesses, or they can use innovative new technologies to leverage the data to gain competitive advantage, fight fraud, ease regulatory compliance, or boost operational efficiencies.

To further your path toward better, smarter ways of working with data, we've put together a series of articles in the 2012 Big Data Analytics Guide. Within these pages you'll find real solutions, real ways of operating, real results, and perhaps most importantly real technology that can be used in your business today. The guide outlines the opportunity and business case for Big Data in the first chapter, and subsequent chapters look at SAP technology innovations, real-world examples, and insights from analytics leaders who are on the forefront of the Big Data trend. In the last chapter, you'll find market research statistics that highlight how C-level executives are using Big Data now and their plans for using it in the future.

Whitepaper: Key Challenges in Risk Management: How Immediate Access to Integrated Information Can Mitigate Risk

by SybaseJun 25, 2012

How long can a business afford to wait for information about position and exposure risk? That is the question for financial institutions in 2012.

Following the financial crisis and increased regulatory pressure, the market has seen a big turning point in risk management. Market volatility and a recognition that counterparty risk is very real have resulted in risk management systems starting to be viewed as strategic assets. Investments have been focused on enabling a holistic view of risk and providing timely access to information.

An exclusive WatersTechnology survey of senior risk and IT decision-makers in international financial institutions reveals that the majority of firms do not have the capabilities to provide senior management with immediate information about risk, but believe that introducing systems that would allow the firm to know their positions and exposures at any point in time would be beneficial to the business.

Part of the problem is that data is often managed in different systems. Integrating risk systems and ensuring data feeding the systems is of high quality are both essential factors when creating a foundation for real-time risk management. But legacy systems and lack of data consistency often means this is easier said than done.

This complimentary WatersTechnology white paper reveals the findings of this exclusive survey, with an in-depth look at the relationship between data management and risk mitigation.

Whitepaper: Counterparty Risk: Are We Leveraging Our Tools?

by SybaseApr 29, 2012

Counterparty risk has long been a source of concern for risk managers. However, the financial crisis brought new urgency to counterparty risk management for risk practitioners, regulators and financial firms alike, as exposure to collapsing giants left the industry reeling. That urgency has been punctuated by the global economy's current struggles, as firms grapple with new regulations, the European debt crisis and fears of a double-dip recession.

The failure of MF Global in October has only heightened concerns about counterparty risk and the continued vulnerability to systemic risk. Current technologies and techniques allow for more sophisticated and effective approaches to counterparty risk than those that fell short in 2008. Yet there are many barriers to successful adoption and implementation, and significant changes will be required, from the global regulatory level all the way down to individual departments at financial firms around the world.

If the end goal is a standardized method of quantifying risk exposure among financial institutions, the industry and regulators have considerable work to do. The real challenge is being able to understand exposures in real time across counterparties, markets and asset classes.

"The first step is to achieve some transparency within the organization to the information that is already there and is already flowing across different systems-that's the practical way of making information flow into the right hands sufficiently early," says Sinan Baskan, vice president of business development in financial markets at Sybase.
