Greek financial services company, Alpha Bank, has deployed an operational reporting and enterprise integration environment to deliver information to bank regulators and help users react quickly to changes in global financial markets. The Information Builder’s technology will help fulfil requests from the Central Bank of Greece, as well as streamline data acquisition (collection, quality and movement) and information delivery (reporting, analysis and distribution).
As a result of the troubled economy in Greece, Alpha Bank has to retain adequate liquidity, preserve good banking relationships and respond to daily requests from regulators at the Central Bank of Greece. To provide the requisite information to senior managers and regulators, the bank will use Information Builders’ software to analyse information about investments, mortgages, credit cards, consumer loans, leasing packages, insurance, chequing accounts, savings accounts and other bank products.
