For a Top Tier Bank within its Data Quality Management (DQM) Department responsible for ensuring delivery of top quality reports to national and international regulators, the functional analyst joined the Agile team in charge of the liquidity-reporting tool: Moody's analytics liquidity solution.
The customer needed the right resource combining both knowledge of Liquidity risk and Moody’s engine to be integrated in its Monthly Liquidity Team in order to assist as well as offer advice and expertise to improve its liquidity reporting. Specifically:
The challenges faced were the highly dynamic and faced-pace regulatory environment in which the client was evolving as well as the “way of work” implemented within the department (SAFe environment). The project also included an upgrade of the reporting tool towards a newer version requiring further analysis and up staffing (bringing another layer of complication to the organizational structure in place). The expectation management of the various stakeholders was also demanding as the time pressure was high (Many assignments to work on with limited human capital as well as time constraints).
As described in the Customer Goal section, Avantage Reply offered the right resource fitting best the client needs for that specific project. The consultant conducted the functional analysis needed to help the client for its change requests to deploy in Moody’s analytics (LCR, ALMM, NSFR reportings). He also performed end-to-end testing cases with non-regression analysis in order to validate new functionalities of the risk engine.
