Financial Modelling Accelerator

Get In Touch

Rapidly pilot and migrate to Financial Modelling on AWS using our templates and expertise in services such as; AWS Lambda, AWS Fargate, Amazon ECS, Amazon EKS, AWS Batch, Amazon EC2, and Kineses.

Our approach addresses common on-premises challenges, including long execution times, capacity planning, high total cost of ownership (TCO), and low agility or innovation.

What is Financial Modelling?

Financial modelling involves the use of High Performance and High Throughput Computing clusters, working in parallel, to predict possible future outcomes typically using Monte Carlo techniques. Example applications include credit modelling, risk modelling and predictive analytics.
The growth in compute capacity and services on AWS means that financial modelling workloads, traditionally running on on-premises grids, can now run more effectively and at a lower cost on the cloud.

Benefits

  • Elastic scaling on-demand – Compute resource scales in line with business needs.
  • Unconstrained parallel execution – Remove resource contention issues and capacity planning.
  • Cost flexibility – Transparent insights into costs; optimize price/performance and only pay for what you use.
  • Dramatically reduced code and infrastructure – Fewer bugs, less maintenance, reduced TCO.
  • Compliance – Reduce the effort of security and regulatory compliance by leveraging the AWS Shared Responsibility Model.
  • Pulse of the Future – The technology evolves with you, making obsolescence a thing of the past.
  • Sustainability – Reduce your carbon footprint by moving from always-on grids to compute on demand.

How it works

1. Discover

The accelerator begins with an initial discovery workshop, which typically takes one day. Following the workshop, we assess the suitability of the proposed workload, determine a scope of work, technical architecture, data security requirements and Key Performance Indicators. In total this phase takes approximately one week.

2. Evaluate

During the evaluation phase, we migrate and modernize key elements of the workload, ensuring that the required KPIs, cost and scalability metrics are measured. This phase typically takes between 6 to 12 weeks depending on the nature of the workload and is iterative and transparent.

3. Report

Finally, we produce an analysis report that details the results of the accelerator, measured KPIs and a go forward plan to move the workload fully to production.

4. Scale Up

Post the accelerator engagement, we support the full build and scale out to production. A dedicated team is assigned full time for the duration.
