The world of risk modelling moves quickly, particularly due to advancements in computer technology. As more computer resources can be harnessed and made available to run risk models on the granularity and accuracy of resulting reports grows and the data returned to insurers and reinsurers becomes more reliable.
Risk Management Solutions (RMS) have announced a new leap forward for their risk modelling solutions as a result of them implementing a high performance computing solution. The new solution which they call Enterprise Grid Computing ‘allows computing resources to be used much more efficiently across the organization, with more flexible job and resource management and faster analysis run times providing higher productivity and deeper insight into modeled results‘.
