Redwood Shores, CA – September 29, 2009

News Facts

Oracle today announced that Gartner, Inc. has positioned Oracle Financial Services Software in the Leaders quadrant of its 2009 "Magic Quadrant for Operational Risk Management Software for Financial Services” report.
The Gartner Magic Quadrant positions vendors within a particular quadrant based on completeness of vision and their ability to execute on that vision.
The Oracle® Reveleus suite of pre-built and comprehensive analytical applications provides financial institutions in-depth risk, performance and compliance analysis across the enterprise.
Scalable to the demands of the broadest set of customers, Oracle Reveleus delivers the insights needed to manage the business risks of the most demanding, tier-1 institutions around the world.
Oracle Reveleus Operational Risk delivers a full range of operational risk and compliance functionality in a single application. Organizations can identify, analyze and measure risks both qualitatively and quantitatively to easily create a holistic view of risk across both processes and lines of business.
Powerful workflow functionality keeps operational risk managers, compliance managers and business heads abreast of significant changes and events while comprehensive business intelligence reporting provides them with insight and drill-down via easily viewable dashboards. Integrated modeling for regulatory and economic capital is available within the Oracle Reveleus suite.
Through its integration with Oracle Mantas, Oracle Reveleus also provides surveillance and behavior detection related to anti-money laundering (AML), know-your-customer, fraud and trading compliance.
According to Gartner, "This [Leaders] quadrant tends to be occupied by vendors with software applications that are addressing qualitative as well as quantitative aspects of risk management of [operational risk management] ORM. These vendors have achieved a high level of market acceptance and enable a consistent view of operational risk across the organization, as compared to separately designed and implemented risk calculation engines or audit, control and compliance reporting tools. Such vendors approach operational risk more comprehensively and holistically across the enterprise and link operational risk to corporate performance management (CPM). They have robust organizational structures and professional services resources."
