LONDON -- (Marketwire) -- 11/01/12 -- Chartis Research, the leading provider of research and analysis for risk management technology, announced today that it has released the RiskTech100 report for 2012. The RiskTech100 report can be downloaded for free from the new RiskTech Forum website at www.risktech-forum.com. The RiskTech Forum is the leading independent resource for the global risk technology community.
Chartis Research's seventh annual edition of the RiskTech100 report reveals that businesses face a major dilemma in their approach to risk management.
"Balancing the short term, day to day requirements of risk management with the need to implement a long term strategy for building a robust enterprise wide risk management architecture for the future is a huge challenge for many organizations," says Peyman Mestchian, Managing Partner of Chartis Research.
"Regulation continues to grow exponentially, leaving risk practitioners running to keep up," continued Mestchian. "It can be all too easy to lose sight of any longer term goals and strategies as the focus is on simply meeting the day to day demands of operating the business such as compliance with new regulation. This combined with straitened budgets in the aftermath of the global financial crisis adds to the pressure. Most of the practitioners we surveyed for the report expect risk technology expenditure to either increase or stay the same as last year. Only 10.8% believe that expenditure will fall."
The RiskTech100 report also reveals that the three main factors shaping a firms' enterprise risk management program are: regulatory compliance; upgrading risk management systems; and the necessity to reduce costs.
The top five RiskTech100 companies in 2012 are: IBM, SAS, SunGard, Oracle and Misys. The rankings remain dominated by U.S. headquartered firms with 50 companies located there. The UK has the second largest number with 18 firms, followed by France with eight firms appearing in the RiskTech100.
