Top Trends Used By Banking Sector To Overcome Risk Architecture Challenges

Banking CIO Outlook | Monday, April 04, 2022

Financial services organizations get frequently confronted with risk architecture difficulties, which the economic consequences from the pandemic have worsened.

Fremont, CA: The banking industry has had to move swiftly to digitalize its financial services in serving more clients than before. In the banking business, IT consumption has always been important. Still, a massive expansion for financial services has pushed IT adoption dramatically, which has been tremendously valuable for fostering financial inclusion.

Banks are investigating important trends in implementing more efficient risk architectures, riding the tide of new technology. Their management recognizes that a well-designed risk framework will enable them to expand their service capacity, deliver more effective, efficient, and agile risk assessment, and improve risk analysis.

Using real cloud technologies, developing apps on microservices, and upskilling in data science are some of the current ideas financial institutions are embracing to solve risk architecture issues.

Big data analytics

In the financial services industry, a digital revolution of disruption and innovation is beginning, making data a precious resource. So there's no surprise that big data is now playing an increasingly important role throughout retail banking and algorithmic trading, assisting with regulatory, compliance, and security issues.

Many financial institutions use big data technologies to enable analytics that can run more flexibly and creatively across various topics, including operational risk, cyber risk, and real-time P&L and performance attribution.

Cloud tech

The cloud provides an entirely new way of developing and integrating applications. Many concerns stemming from legacy systems limiting corporate development can get eliminated if a company has reengineered its risk architecture and correctly relocated it to the cloud.

The cloud provides a standards-based framework that can greatly increase software component compatibility. As a result, the cloud's standards-based architecture has proven a game-changer in any financial organization's digital transformation.

Machine learning risk models

Machine learning is ushering in a new generation of risk and verification models that are non-subjective, sophisticated, and outperform previous models. Rather than a quant picking and calibrating a model, the algorithm learns the model from the data. As a result, machine learning models provide more exact and accurate findings than risk models that average and interpolate data, primarily during stressful moments when machine learning excels where calibration flops.
