Warehouse Studio (IWS) for Capital Markets
The Industry Warehouse
Studio for Capital Markets delivers the first pre-built business intelligence
application suite for the industry structured to leverage a customer-centric
data warehouse infrastructure and specifically designed to exploit the industry-specific
transaction-level data in a typical capital markets organization.
The Capital Markets IWS is intended as a solution to the data fragmentation
issues faced by different kinds of financial institutions ranging from Investment
banks, Commercial Banks, Investment Companies, Brokers, Depository Institutions
and Fund Managers. Of course, one of the key benefits of the data warehouse
solution available from Sybase is that, in a complex banking group environment
comprising many activities, the ability exists to integrate all of these activities
into a single data infrastructure.
For financial institutions that are engaged in only some of these activities
the opportunity exists to deploy those modules of the Sybase solution that
are needed now with the reassurance that the system can readily expand to
encompass other activities, (including retail banking, credit card management,
property & casualty insurance and life insurance), should the company
diversify. In this way, the first step will have been taken to manage one
of the key risks faced by financial institutions; that of technological risk.
The initial focus for Capital Markets IWS is on addressing an organization's
needs in terms of Risk Analysis. It provides an analytic focus on: Capital
Adequacy Risk, Customer Credit Risk, Country Risk, Foreign Exchange Risk,
Sectoral Risk, and Interest Rate Risk.
