  2. 2. Total Visibility - How to increase control and add value to your business Applied Visibility for Banking Across the globe, the financial sector is in the eye of the storm. Increasing regulatory pressures and tightening economic conditions force its participants to adapt quickly to the new panorama. The key to success in this challenging environment is to have all relevant information in real time to improve operational decision making. But it is not just about having data, it’s about being able to understand it, and having views which are adjustable to the needs of users. For example, Figure 1 shows a control panel/dashboard which provides a picture of the state of the services in bank offices. The colorful graphics facilitate understanding the information and speed up the process of decision making. Real-time management of critical applications enables service level improvement. Working with solutions that provide Total Visibility, banks will have greater visibility of different transactional processes in real time (for example, Home Banking, ATMs, payment processing, phone banking) at different levels and areas of management. Figure 2 shows an example of a dashboard that is used to monitor the state of the ATMs in a particular region selected by the user. In every organization, each of the different areas require particular information that is relevant for having an immediate view of key indicators that determine their performance weekly, monthly and quarterly. This information can be tailored to specific work roles: while senior managers need a comprehensive view of corporate performance, covering first class financial aspects, human resources, and customer metrics; a manager of a branch requires information about the sale of local products and the profitability by line of business. Figure 3 shows the dashboard used by the Department of Technology of a bank to have visibility of the IT services state and data flow.Figure 1 - The colored icon informs clearly and simply the general state of monitoredprocesses (in this case, the service state of bank offices).

  3. 3. Total Visibility - How to increase control and add value to your business In this sense, there are many processes, events, and incidents for which banks need to have real-time visibility in order to ensure their proper functioning. Features, such as collecting, storing, and interpreting complex centralized logs from multiple platforms, which can also be analyzed and correlated to provide users with comprehensive visibility of all that is happening in the monitoring applications in real-time, contribute to achieving sustained compliance with internal and external audits, central bank requirements, and local and international regulations such as SOX, PCI-Figure 2 - Icons of different colors provide a snapshot of the service level of the ATM DSS, and of a bank. At the bottom of the dashboard, references of what each color means Other features that are useful forare permanently available. The line graph allows comparing the availability and activity ofthe monitored ATMs. strengthening the Security areas of companies are: sending scalable alerts and predefined automatic actions (which provide greater reliability and control by keeping the heads of each sector informed of everything that happens in real time), forensic analysis (which provides an accurate diagnosis of the condition of the monitored components), and predictive analysis (which, based on statistical analysis of trends, allows predicting what will happen in the future). Figure 3 - In this dashboard colored icons report the state of IT services and data flow in real time. The small graphs on the right show the state of security events, server performance, and key performance indicators (KPIs) of the business in real-time. © 2010 - Tango/04 Computing Group 3

Total Visibility - How to increase control and add value to your business On the other hand, reports provide both instant images in real time and forensic analysis on service levels (SLAs), security, regulatory compliance, user activity, systems usage, and more. The clearer and the more intuitive the design is, the greater its ease of use will be. For banks, the possibility of issuing reports instantly helps improve the overall business vision, as well as sustainable compliance with security audits.
