Oracle Upgrades ERM Performance Suite

GRC Announcements | February 16, 2010

Oracle has announced new and upgraded applications for its unified suite of financial services analytical applications for enterprise performance management.

The new solutions, based on the merged capabilities of Oracle Financial Services Applications, Oracle’s Hyperion, Oracle’s Reveleus, and PeopleSoft Enterprise Performance Management, are designed to help institutions:

  • Focus on planning future performance and lowering anticipated risk;
  • Plan net interest margin, anticipate liquidity contingencies, and reconcile asset/liability management forecasts with annual budgets and rolling forecasts; and
  • Provide the capability to go beyond measuring bottoms-up historical performance to actively manage future risks and results.

The new Oracle Financial Services Analytical Applications for EPM includes:

Oracle Financial Services Balance Sheet Planning—The only budgeting solution made specifically for bank planning, budgeting, and forecasting, this application leverages Oracle’s Hyperion Planning as a foundation to allow banks to plan future profitability and risk-adjusted returns. The solution captures instrument characteristics and the nuances of each customer relationship to accurately model balance sheet behavior and provide the most accurate net interest margin and earnings forecasts possible.

Oracle Financial Services Asset Liability Management Analytics—An updated version of the Oracle Asset Liability Management business intelligence application emphasizes the critical need to measure and manage interest rate and liquidity risk. Building on the existing functionally rich Interest Rate Risk content, new metrics, reports, and dashboards provide additional management insight into “stressed” results including Liquidity Gaps, Funding Concentrations, Deposit Distribution Profiles, Marketable Assets, and Liquidity Ratios.
