Redwood Shores, Calif. – Jan. 27, 2011

News Facts

Financial services institutions around the globe now find that many first-generation data warehouse initiatives have proven difficult to complete, costly to maintain and ultimately fail to meet the complex computational demands of the current business climate.
Built on years of global tier-one financial services domain experience, the Oracle Financial Services Data Warehouse is a new approach to data modeling and data warehousing – one that is pre-built for rapid deployment, purpose-built for end-use decision making and designed to specifically address the complex and cross-functional analytical challenges of global financial institutions.
Oracle Financial Services Data Warehouse offers financial institutions the ability to readily access crucial information across the entire organization, with detailed insight into the customer, finance, compliance and risk-related data and activities needed to address comprehensive reporting requirements.
Oracle Financial Services Data Warehouse is ready for analytical applications from third parties, in-house developers or customers may choose from the many pre-built and industry recognized, Oracle Financial Services Analytical Applications.

New Generation of Data Warehousing

The Oracle Financial Services Data Warehouse has been developed to specifically address an institution’s analytical needs in risk, finance, compliance and customer insight. By leveraging Oracle Financial Services’ deep domain experience in global tier-one institutions, customers can:
Readily deploy a pre-built, comprehensive, conformed and end-use proven data model designed for simplified extract, transform and load (ETL), fastest load times and fastest query response times.
Control and manage analytical data with a unified infrastructure that runs analytical applications and complex reporting in the warehouse to easily handle the high-volume, cross-functional computations required to meet today’s emerging regulatory mandates for liquidity and stress testing.
Address accuracy and consistency issues with contextual data-quality checks and automate the removal of inconsistencies across ledgers and books with centralized reconciliation capabilities.
Access a single, conformed and pre-built, “self-service” reporting and business intelligence environment that supports cross-functional analytics by design and is easily extensible to meet future demands.
Leverage the extreme performance, scalability and manageability of Oracle® Exadata Database Machine to process complex analytical scenarios previously thought impractical and deliver answers faster than ever before.
