Like client or transaction information, decision logic is siloed across separate
systems, meaning that inconsistent decisions are made in every area of banking and
financial services from risk rating to underwriting to pricing. Providing powerful
rule management, InRule can help ensure compliance with BASEL II and other key regulations.
Because InRule can be called in process or as a service, decision logic can be shared
across applications and platforms, ensuring consistent decision-making. And because
subject matter experts like risk analsyts can author and update rules and calculations,
maintenance costs are lowered and new business logic deployed more quickly.
A top U.S. Bank/Brokerage firm, with assets of more than $700B had more than 50
Excel-based scorecards for rating and risk management. While the Risk Managers loved
the ability to change the spreadsheets themselves, BASEL II compliance was difficult
and the spreadsheets were expensive and difficult to maintain across the enterprise.
The Bank decided to solve the problem by replacing the spreadsheets with centrally
maintained web applications. While this solution did enable compliance and central
control, all logic changes had to be made through IT. Because Risk Managers could
not update the logic, a three-month almost immediately appeared.
InRule-powered applications have now replaced Excel-based scorecards, delivering
the following benefits:
“InRule enables Credit Risk Analysts to configure new scorecards and revise
existing ones which takes 60%-70% of initial programming out of the cycle time,
reduces ongoing IT maintenance and significantly enhancing the 'Speed to Market'
- production use of the scorecards by analysts.“ Risk Management
