News Facts

Completed testing with Oracle Reveleus Liquidity Risk Management on the Oracle Exadata® Database Machine X2-2 revealed extreme performance for liquidity computations, enabling financial institutions to now estimate liquidity gaps under baseline and stressed conditions and devise appropriate contingency funding strategies in minutes.
Oracle Reveleus Liquidity Risk Management running on Oracle Exadata Database Machine X2-2 calculated business-as-usual liquidity gaps for 370 million cash flows across 65 million accounts in just 69 minutes. After applying modified behavior assumptions to simulate adverse market conditions, stressed liquidity gaps were calculated in only 10 minutes.

Need for High-Performance Liquidity Calculations

Now with Oracle’s extreme performance, even the largest financial institutions globally can apply shocks to their baseline behavior assumptions, calculate stressed case liquidity gaps and develop optimal contingency funding plans within minutes.
