Oracle’s Rapid-Start Data Warehouse Targets Financial Services Challenges

In a move that combines Oracle’s financial-services expertise and its high-performance Oracle Exadata Database Machine, the company unveiled Oracle Financial Services Data Warehouse, an integrated platform that financial institutions can deploy rapidly for making complex and cross-functional analytical decisions.

The new solution represents an alternative to traditional data warehouses that are time consuming to implement, costly to maintain, and often fall short when it comes to the complex computational demands of real-world business environments.

“Oracle’s deep financial services domain experience, coupled with Oracle Exadata, has allowed us to develop a fully realized, solution-driven, high-performance platform that is ready to deploy and meets today’s regulatory requirements and liquidity challenges,” says S. Ramakrishnan, group vice president and general manager, Oracle financial services analytical applications.

Oracle Financial Services Data Warehouse enables financial institutions to access information from across an entire organization for insights into customer, financial, compliance, and risk-management activities. It supports Oracle financial services analytical applications in addition to those created by in-house and third-party developers.

Oracle engineered the solution’s unique data model for simplified extract, transform, and load operations, as well as faster load and query response times. It’s designed to improve information accuracy and consistency with contextual data quality checks. It also automates the removal of inconsistencies across ledgers and books with centralized reconciliation capabilities.

Oracle Exadata Database Machine provides the underlying processing foundation for the system’s high performance, scalability, and manageability. This unified infrastructure enables the high-volume, cross-functional computations required to meet today’s regulatory mandates for liquidity and stress testing as well as profitability management.
