Markets We Serve

We work with financial institutions to help them adapt and prepare their businesses for market changes shaped by evolving digital technologies, dynamic consumer preferences, increasing competition, and changing regulations.
Sub Focus Areas
Governance Risk & Compliance (GRC)
Governance, Risk, and Compliance (GRC)

Over the past decade, the finance industry has seen an unparalleled surge in regulatory requirements, forcing organizations to develop new methods for managing oversight and governance, risk, and compliance. At an enterprise level, regulators demand more transparency and expect financial agencies and institutions to adapt quickly and implement new IT and business process controls to reduce risk for their customers and taxpayers. In many cases, the dynamic regulatory environment creates significant challenges for organizations to understand and implement controls that are both compliant and cost-effective.

 

Unissant delivers cohesive GRC frameworks that provide proactive governance and risk and performance monitoring across your business. Our GRC solutions are based on 3 pillars: 1) Governance, 2) Risk, and 3) Compliance. 

 

Governance: Performs the oversight role and the process by which companies manage and mitigate business risks to promote financial viability, transparency, and accountability. Examples of our governance services include: Corporate Model Evaluation, Corporate Model Remediation, and Governance Performance Monitoring.

 

Risk: Enables an organization to determine its risk tolerance, assess applicable business and regulatory risks, define strategies and controls, implement and optimize controls, and monitor mitigation actions in an organized manner. Examples of our risk management services include: Strategic Entity Level Risk Assessment, Alignment of Strategic and Entity Level Risks with Operational Controls, Development of Risk Mitigation, and Risk Monitoring. 

 

Compliance: Ensures that an organization has the internal policies, automated and business process controls, and reporting capabilities to comply with business and regulatory requirements such as SOX, HIPAA, and OMB Circular A-123. Examples of our compliance services include: Internal Control Matrix Development, Control Evaluation and Monitoring, Segregation of Duty (SOD) Matrix Development, Analysis and Access Monitoring, Regulatory and Legislation Compliance Development, and Maintenance, Compliance Observance, and Monitoring.

 

As needed, we partner with other organizations that have expertise in specific laws, regulations, and technology providers. Contact us for more information.

Business Analytics
Business Analytics

 

With the downturn of the financial market in 2008, many institutions now understand the importance of information management and the analytics that will help them make better business decisions.

 

The focus today is on managing risk, understanding customers and the markets, and being able to predict any changes. Proactive management of information is critical to an organization’s success. Most organizations are moving from a reactive, report driven environment, to a predictive, proactive analytics environment. Advances in technology now allow organizations to assess risk exposure in real-time, across various facets of information within their organization. Analytics solutions may encompass predictive analytics, social media analytics, and self-service analytics to provide views across both structured and unstructured content.

 

Unissant develops predictive models and analytics that focus on critical business components, such as profitability analysis, customer sentiment, credit and market risk management, and fraud detection. Unissant leverages its comprehensive Information Management Framework and its state-of-the-art Innovation Center to develop solutions that help organizations transition from reactive to proactive reporting, analytics, and management.

 

Unissant implements business analytics solutions using the following components: Information Management, Innovative Technology, and Predictive Analytics.

 

Information Management: Business Analytics are only as good as the underlying data an organization collects. In order to have value, the data and information must be trustworthy, accurate, reliable, and governed. Basic information management practices, such as data quality and governance are essential to the implementation of effective analytic solutions. Examples of our Information Management services include: Data Quality Assessments, Data Quality Controls and Monitoring, Data Policies and Procedures, Data Governance Programs, and Data Definition and Standardization.

 

Innovative Technology: Because each organization has its own business challenges, leveraging the right technology is fundamental to solving complex business problems. Unissant believes in assessing and leveraging your existing technology and, where necessary, recommending additional options. In our experience, companies may not fully leverage their existing tools and technologies. Our approach to problem-solving is based on understanding an organization’s business process, the scope of the problem, and, whenever possible, to leverage existing infrastructure to maximize ROI and remediate issues. Examples of our innovative technology services include: Data Architecture Assessments, Technology Recommendations, Proof of Concept Development, and Technology Implementations.

 

Predictive Analytics: To implement intuitive predictive analytics, an organization must have high quality data, defined business scenarios, and key performance metrics. Based on the organization’s needs, there may be multiple analytic solutions. Examples of our proactive analytic services include: Key Performance Metrics Definition, Trusted Source and Lineage Analysis, Reporting and Analytics Tool Assessments and Recommendations, and Analytics Development.
