Financial consolidation systems are the ‘engine room’ of the corporate finance department, enabling companies of all sizes to comply with regulatory reporting requirements, company law and global accounting standards as well satisfy management’s need for periodic management reporting.
But all is not well with standalone consolidations applications that were developed in the 1990’s and which are still commonplace in some of the world’s largest multinationals.
According to one recent report, 47 percent of companies have made substantial investments in the last year in their financial close, filing, and reporting. Yet, despite the considerable sums
of money invested in the process, management teams across the globe remain dissatisfied with the quality and timeliness of management information.

Sanctions screening and fraud prevention solutions use real-time detection to prevent terrorist financing and financial crime; whereas anti-money laundering (AML) primarily follows an “observe and report” process. Such a process is all that is currently required by many regulators. Increasingly though, international compliance teams are choosing to stop transactions before they are executed – based on suspicions of money laundering activity. More and more, the industry has been asking itself if this approach of rejecting suspicious activity is a more effective strategy to prevent money laundering. This paper explores where and why AML real-time detection might make sense as a new paradigm for global financial institutions.

The risk reporting environment for banks has changed. Regulatory
imperatives that were largely driven by the financial crisis of 2007—
such as Dodd-Frank, Principles for Effective Risk Data Aggregation
and Risk Reporting (BCBS 239) by the Basel Committee on Banking
Supervision (BCBS), Comprehensive Capital Analysis and Review
(CCAR) and others—are impacting banks around the globe. These
imperatives are forcing banks to rethink and reinvent how their
systems integrate and how data from across the bank flows into
the aggregated risk and capital reports required by regulatory
agencies. Banks must be able to convey to agencies that the data is
complete, correct and consistent in order to establish that the reports
This white paper examines how some of the ways organizations
use big data make their infrastructures vulnerable to attack. It
presents recommended best practices organizations can adopt
to help make their infrastructures and operations more secure.
And it discusses how adding advanced security software solutions
from IBM to their big-data environment can fill gaps that
big-data platforms by themselves do not address. It describes
how IBM® Security Guardium®, an end-to- end solution for
regulatory compliance and comprehensive data security, supports
entitlement reporting; user-access and activity monitoring;
advanced risk analytics and real-time threat detection analytics;
alerting, blocking, encryption and other data protection capabilities,
as well as automated compliance workflows and reporting
capabilities, to stop threats.

Global financial organizations are facing increasing demands from the business for more granularity, transparency, reporting and security. If you’re on the IT side, you know this adds a different set of ‘mores’ to the equation: More duplication, delays, and people. What’s the net-net? More cost and more risk.
You can balance the scales to satisfy those demands. And it starts with thinking differently about data management.
Our financial services technology experts will explore the implications of governance, risk and compliance (GRC) imperatives. You’ll learn:

Improving data management is critical for streamlining regulatory reporting, monetizing customer analytics, and democratizing data-driven decision-making. Financial firms must transform their data management approach to unlock data from its silos, incorporate unstructured information from non-traditional sources, and integrate information whether on-premises, in the cloud, batch-based, or real-time. As this evolution continues, technology leaders must consider integration holistically across the enterprise and create an agility layer that is key to future-proofing their data management architecture.

As a strategic partner in your business, you face increasing demands from your line-of-business leaders for new functionality and advanced capabilities, which you must deliver with a constrained IT budget. What could you do to meet these expectations and add value to the business if you could contain costs, increase operational efficiency, and do more with less?
You need to overcome several challenges. The cost of software licensing management is rising as a result of maintaining proprietary platforms or legacy technology, making it difficult to modernize your datacenter and migrate to more cost-effective solutions. You’re likely burdened by regulatory compliance mandates, which create enforcement, reporting, and auditing expenses.
And, like 67% of IT organizations, your budget is probably shrinking.
Red Hat can help. Red Hat® Enterprise Linux® gives you the high-value subscription model, built-in governance processes, and simplified migration path you need to aggressively lower your
Your information can be one of your greatest assets - helping you stay on top of regulatory requirements, close to customers, and ahead of the competition. Organizations that pay attention to their data will be the ones to survive and thrive. So how do you obtain a complete view of your information when it is scattered across silos? Or integrate data from structured and unstructured data sources? Or help reduce the risk of inaccurate reporting? And how do you manage your information more effectively to help keep costs from spiraling out of control?
To meet evolving regulatory mandates, companies around the world are adopting International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS), a set of methodologies and disclosure requirements for the preparation and presentation of financial statements. Yet making the transition to IFRS is not just a rote accounting exercise.

We work in an ever-changing landscape of competitors, market forces, customer relationships, partner alliances, political and regulatory pressures, and global climate effects. The common mechanism for coping effectively with change is to refer to canned reports and dashboards, dump reporting data into a spreadsheet and look for answers to today's questions. All too often, we have to rely on estimates rather than models, and gut feel rather than data, because we can't get answers in a timely fashion. Yet we know that the answers lie hidden in the morass of corporate data.
