Risk and Reward in Financial Services

Contributor:

Author: Dan Retzer, senior vice president and chief technology officer, SunGard’s North American securities business and SunGard’s XSP A version of this article originally appeared in Bobsguide. One person’s risk is another person’s reward. A trite phrase, to be sure, though the sentiment is far subtler. Conditional evaluations such as “risk,” or “good” and “bad,” are subjective judgments, which have long been the bane of IT and computing systems. The programs, algorithms, reports and systems that we rely on to help us evaluate risk are all derived from the more objective binary logic that their creators wielded.... read more

When negotiating to buy the house, the selling agent could only advise me to bid somewhere between my heart and my wallet.... read more

Market Data Challenges in a Growing Energy Industry

Contributor:

Author: Janet Shuman, director of product Mmanagement and business development, SunGard's MarketMap Energy Once upon a time, managing energy market data was simple; data came from a few suppliers and getting everything from a single aggregator was easy. Today, that is not the case. Energy companies often have to go to multiple sources for the data they need, and even then, that data isn’t complete. Adding to the problem is the dizzying abundance of data made available on a seemingly daily basis. This has created unique problems that weren’t seen even a few years ago.... read more
