SAS will launch a new version of its SAS Risk Management solution later this quarter. Release 3.3 will include enhanced analytics to analyze and explore position and market data from trading operations faster and more accurately to determine overall risk exposure. A new Curve Analyzer component will enable users to interactively plot and explore risk factor curves and then to create scenarios of curve shifts and changes that can be used in scenario analyses. Other enhancements will better examine risk data from simulations and calculate more accurate at-risk measures including value-at-risk, credit-at-risk and earnings-at-risk.
Decisioneering and Dataskill have partnered to develop a Web-based risk-modeling environment called the Stochastic Modeling Workbench. SWM users can create and modify models in a local browser while accessing the power of stochastic and risk-analysis routines on a corporate server. SWM enables users to model scenarios graphically and hierarchically to reduce problems associated with maintaining an accurate model structure. The workbench runs from a central server and is accessed through a Web browser with a secure HTTP connection to allow analysts to share models remotely and coordinate project efforts.
