New Ex-Ante risk analytics have been developed and now includes the following indicators at all levels: systematic risk, specific risk, Conditional Value-at-Risk (C-VaR), Incremental Valueat- Risk (I-VaR); additional enhancements allow users to manipulate and edit matrices and also to import them from external sources.

Equity Attribution, Curve Management optimisation, KRD/DAM enhancements with new indicators,...) and technical enhancements, such as the extension of web-services and the support of Linux.
The integration of a new reporting tool BIRT (Business Intelligence and Reporting Tools), into B-One is also major evolution. BIRT is a very easy-to-use and powerful tool for creating and customising any types of reports. Its Drag & Drop functionality allows users to create reports with ease from a components library or customise existing templates, it is also possible to produce and distribute these documents in any Microsoft Office format: PowerPoint, Word, Excel or Pdf.
BIRT can be used as an alternative to Business Objects, B-Oneâs other reporting tool, or in conjunction with it. All of these new features have been warmly received by our user community and we are currently starting to upgrade our clients with the 3.0 version.
