Tipping Points for Legacy Risk System Replacement: The CRO View

Risk management is a critical function but it is not revenue-generating and therefore technology investment has sometimes taken a back seat to front-office innovation There are many drivers in the current market for firms to invest in new risk technology platforms—regulatory and market structure changes, business expansion, or client transparency requests, to name a few—but firms often delay pulling the trigger. Unpicking legacy platforms is never a simple process, especially if years of technology workarounds have been built on top of the platform. This webinar presented lessons learned by CROs and their teams engaged in risk technology transformation programs.

On November 8th, Virginie O’Shea, Research Director at Aite Group, discussed the challenges faced by risk management executives in the capital markets when they are attempting to replace their risk technology architectures. She highlighted lessons learned during this process and pitfalls to avoid, including those related to technical, operational, and cultural factors.

MS. O'Shea covered the following topics:

  • Legacy Architecture
    • Silos
    • Key Person Risk
  • Pain Points
    • Latency
    • Internal Build Maintenance
  • Building A Business Case
    • Hurdles to Anticipate
    • Finding the Right Sponsors
    • Quick Wins and Words of Wisdom
  • Key Takeaways
