Financial institutions are confronted with a multitude of new regulatory requirements in the market risk environment. As a consequence, the demands on data storage are also increasing. The granularity of the data, its quantity and quality as well as its cross-disciplinary consistency are affected. At the same time, banks are facing the challenge of having to make their IT systems more cost-efficient – a consequence of increasing competitive pressure and the low interest rate environment.

However, the current development is also a catalyst for the reorganisation of the IT architecture in market risk. New technologies offer great potential, even beyond the legal and internal requirements, such as the data lake for centralised trade data or the machine learning system for analysing historical simulations.

Further possibilities for action can also be derived from the outsourcing of individual services or entire service units, as well as from the consolidation of functions within a bank – always with the goal in mind of sustainably positioning the institution.
