The rankings, now in their second year, are developed using a comprehensive sweep of risk management systems and the application of a detailed assessment methodology. Results for this year have been compiled from over 750 questionnaires and more than 100 interviews with technology buyers, as well as data reviews with over 20 independent consultants. SunGard, represented primarily by its Adaptiv and BancWare solutions, scored consistently highly across criteria such as functionality, customer satisfaction and core technology, achieving the number one ranking for the second time.
David Rowe, executive vice president for risk management at SunGard, commented: âThis latest accolade further strengthens our position as a world-class provider of risk management solutions. Recent events in the financial industry, plus the introduction of new regulations and compliance initiatives, show that effective risk management is more important than ever. Through our continuous investment in new product development and customer service, we are showing that we can provide some of the best technology to drive new and future risk management strategies.â
