September 13, 2013 | Palo Alto, California: MetricStream, the market leader in enterprise-wide Governance, Risk, and Compliance (GRC) solutions, will participate in a panel discussion on “Challenges for Risk Managers to Obtain Accurate and Useful Data” organized by the New York Chapter of the Risk Management Association (RMA) on September 17, 2013. Mr. Piyush Pant, Vice President of Strategic Markets at MetricStream, will share advice on how businesses can manage the most fundamental issues of ‘Big Data’ as well as offer tips around efficiently implementing big data management tools. Other leading industry experts will participate in the discussion to shed light on the various issues related to big data and the associated internal risk management requirements for an organization.

The financial services industry at large has an unprecedented need for increased visibility given today’s global economic landscape and complex banking regulations. Though many financial services firms have tried to exploit the opportunities that big data offers, which include real-time visibility into risk trends and events, enhanced customer insights, and a better forecast into changing market conditions, few have been able to derive these desired benefits. For many organizations, risk data is locked in organizational and departmental silos. Organizations need to adopt big data best practices in order to enhance their understanding of risks, and achieve measurable business value.

This event will offer attendees valuable insight around tackling large volumes of complex but highly valuable data, with a focus on how to derive business value from big data technology implementations. Other distinguished event panelists include Scott N. Dillman, Partner at PricewaterhouseCoopers Advisory Services, Rosemary Rinder, Risk Data Governance Officer at Citigroup, and Andrew Leonard, Managing Director and Head of Operational Risk Management at Depository Trust & Clearing Corporation.
