Facing increasingly restrictive economic pressures and growing regulatory demands, financial services companies are looking for better insights into market needs, ways to improve IT performance to meet these demands and reduce operating costs at the same time. Platform Computing solutions can help.
Risk management is the name of the game for firms in the financial marketplace. Regulations like Basel III and Solvency II are pushing companies of all types and sizes to assess risk in near real time, specifically within the areas of credit and liquidity, using analytics to understand enormous amounts of data almost instantly. The applications that meet these challenges place an enormous strain on computing resources.
IBM Platform Computing solutions can help you improve the performance of your applications to support faster, more accurate and more reliable decision-making in financial markets. Private HPC clusters, grids and clouds allow multiple applications and lines of business to effectively utilize a single heterogeneous, shared infrastructure to support pricing of market and credit risk, compliance reporting, pre-trade analysis, back testing and new product development.
IBM Platform™ Symphony is a powerful, enterprise-class grid management solution for organizations running compute- and data-intensive applications. Symphony accelerates a wide variety of parallel applications, quickly computing results while making optimal use of available infrastructure. It provides the agility required to predictably meet and exceed throughput goals for the most demanding risk management applications.
The Platform application software solutions help manage and accelerate workload processing and guarantee the completion of workloads across a distributed, shared IT environment, while fully utilizing all HPC resources—regardless of operating system or architecture. The result is improved application performance for a significantly reduced total cost of ownership.
You need to get the most out of your IT investment: infrastructure capacity, utilization and performance. Platform Computing Solutions can help you perform more rigorous analysis with more data to properly simulate market and credit risk, and meet regulatory requirements. Platform computing solutions support:
Major Wallstreet FirmDrive down the capital and operational costs for a distributed computational grid, and refresh it for manageability, and to support new regulations like Basel III and more complex risk analytics.
Insurance CompanyThis insurance company wanted to scale out from a small, overloaded cluster to hundreds of machines to handle increased workload. Platform Symphony helped it run up to 10x more scenario models at once and reduced time to run complex stochastic simulations.
