To help financial institutions grow, manage risk, and optimize shareholder value, Oracle delivers a comprehensive, integrated suite of financial services analytical applications for enterprise performance management, including profitability management, funds transfer pricing, pricing management, and balance sheet planning. Now more than ever, financial institutions, their regulators, and shareholders are focused on the need to measure and meet risk-adjusted performance objectives, price products to reflect their true risk, and better understand how the institution is impacted by threats to liquidity, capital adequacy, and exposure to market rate volatility. As Regulators continue to drive best practices adoption, the big idea behind an integrated risk and finance platform is the notion of being "compliance centric" . where business processes, analytic data models, application functions, and policies are designed with accounting, regulation, and risk requirements built in at the transaction level. In a compliance-centric institution, a single set of data, policies, analytics, and rules is used to trigger appropriate risk decisions and regulatory reporting, financial entries, and indicators that demonstrate the use of required control procedures.Key to success for a financial institution is a comprehensive strategy that combines well-designed technology architecture, a suite of analytical applications for risk-aware decision making, and a commitment to raise the analytical orientation of its people toward fact-based decision making.
In the post-crisis landscape, effective risk management should be considered a matter of using the information derived from analytical risk assessment to make better strategic decisions and drive growth appropriately. In this way, risk management becomes a proactive, ongoing initiative tasked with creating value in addition to protecting assets and guarding against failure.Oracle Enterprise risk management solutions span all areas of risk, including credit, market, operational, liquidity, fixed asset, business and reputation risk, enabling institutions to manage all their risk and provide necessary feeds for compliance-based reporting. The capabilities of Oracle for risk management help financial institutions address compliance issues such as Basel II that demand a close operational synergy between finance and risk functions. Integrating risk and finance in financial services centers around four pillars:1. A financial center of excellence with a strong analytical orientation and a set of shared services supporting the institution across all significant lines of business2. Integrated data and information model, with a single "golden source," and ownership and custody of information that is used for finance, strategy, risk, and compliance3. A unified/common technology architecture and set of open standards and services for transaction and data integration, policy management, analytics, metrics, reporting, collaboration, and internal control across core enterprise financial management functions, both inside and outside the organization4. An ability to adapt to change . in accounting standards, regulations, and business requirements
