Analytics in Action: Risk

In any organization, the issue of risk can be maddeningly hard to pin down, much less manage. What’s our threshold for risk? Are we tracking and forecasting our performance in a way that offers visibility into which risks we’re taking?  What are the risks to achieving our strategic objectives? Which metrics should we apply to risk? If you’ve ever grappled with tough questions like these, you already know the challenges inherent in risk management. 

Risk Analytics is an effective tool for organizations looking to more clearly define, understand and manage their risk profile – to increase what we call their “Risk Intelligence.” Risk analytics can give organizations visibility into many kinds of systemic risks, from credit risk and market risk to operational, reputational and cyber risk. It can help leaders deploy capital and manage their supply chain at a level that matches their risk tolerance. For organizations exposed to significant regulatory risk, it can be an important tool for helping to achieve compliance. And that’s just the start.

Some organizations are great at risk management. Others are great at business analytics. At Deloitte, we’re recognized as world leaders in both areas – and we’ve brought them together in our Risk Analytics practice to help organizations plan, monitor and model their enterprise risk. We bring an industry-focused approach to our clients’ needs, and are able to tap the full experience of our organization to deliver the value from risk analytics that our clients expect.
