Big Data has been the phrase of the year for technology journalists, but what actually is "Big Data"? Where did these technologies originate and how might they change financial industry risk management for the better?
As part of PRMIA's Big Data event Xenomorph CEO Brian Sentance hosted a panel discussion on the potential impact of Big Data on risk management and the finance industry in general.
As part of the TabbFORUM "Innovations in Trading and Technology Spotlight" series of videos, Xenomorph CEO Brian Sentance joined senior TABB analyst Paul Rowady to discuss the challenges for data strategy, and the way that risk monitoring can feed back into the system to create a more unified approach to managing and making use of that data.

Wilmott Forum Event Hosted by Xenomorph and Numerix
New York, 31 May 2012
The credit crisis of 2007 brought the usage of LIBOR and LIBOR swap rates for discounting purposes into acute focus, as LIBOR spreads to US Treasury rates dramatically increased from the then typical levels of around 50bp to a peak of 450bp in October 2007. This has led to many practitioners to now use Overnight Indexed Swap (OIS) rates as a proxy for risk-free rates in derivatives valuation.
This event discussed the use of OIS discounting and curve management in general, from the point of view of the practitioner, the financial engineer and the systems implementer.
Tools for better data management, commonly seen in a back office setting with issues surrounding reference data, are becoming increasingly relevant for the front office, assisting with risk strategy and innovation.
Brian Sentance, CEO of Xenomorph, talked to TABB Group's Paul Rowady about providing the front office with tools to use data that has long been stuck in the back office to find and harvest opportunity.
During the recent Future City Data event in New York, Brian Sentance, CEO Xenomorph, joined a panel of industry representatives who shared their views on current and future data issues.
