Now in its ninth successful year, the Risk Software Report 2016 features the products and service offerings of the leading risk software vendors and consultancies for 2016. BearingPoint is one of our report sponsors and is listed in almost every category with Abacus360 Banking, which enables comprehensive functionalities for reporting, regulatory analytics, risk calculations and management of regulatory KPIs.
Jane Stoll, Managing Director at allaboutrisk.com
Abacus360 Banking is the flagship product of the Abacus Solution Suite. It fulfills the requirements of BCBS 239 principles for risk data aggregation and reporting. Based on a single data model, it integrates reporting, risk, and finance applications and thus complies with the requirements for data consistency across departments mentioned in BCBS 239. Abacus360 Banking also meets the requirements of data lineage through the complete audit trail (CAT).
Abacus360 Banking stands for a holistic 360° approach in two fundamental ways: Firstly, the new platform goes far beyond official report preparation by integrating comprehensive functionalities for reporting, regulatory analytics, risk calculations and management of regulatory KPIs. Secondly, the new platform covers the requirements for all stakeholders involved within the Regulatory Value Chain. It can be used by firms as well as by supervisory authorities and facilitates all of the various value chain processes.
This decision for a novel, universal and comprehensive platform has been motivated by regulatory developments which have not only brought forth the most recent new measures but which have ensured the likelihood that stricter requirements will ensue in the future. In the banking industry, the results of these measures are the stress tests, AnaCredit, BCBS 239 and IFRS 9. Other trends include gradually replacing form-based reporting with data cubes and the ever-increasing influence of regulation upon banks’ product portfolios. Consequently, the regulatory KPIs have to be seriously considered in relation to long-term planning and management.
