The RiskAdvisory Enterprise Commodity Risk Aggregation and Analytics (ECRAA) Approach


Great decisions come from the analysis of consistent data gathered from multiple resources across the enterprise. Seamlessly integrated data and aggregated risk metrics provide firmer and more accurate information to companies that need to monitor their overall corporate risk exposures and adapt to the challenges and opportunities presented by fast-moving markets.


RiskAdvisory calls this approach Enterprise Commodity Risk Aggregation and Analytics (ECRAA). Generated using SAS Commodity Risk Solutions, ECRAA gives your organization the ability to:  


Uncover overlooked opportunities to profit.

Mitigate risks.

Minimize losses.

Maintain trader and corporate position and credit limits.

Optimize asset utilization and capital allocation.


ECRAA focuses first on aggregating disparate data from internal and external sources into a trusted central system to reduce errors and maintain data veracity. Then ECRAA brings the data to life by applying powerful analytics, running real-time simulations and generating dashboards and reports. The result is faster, more accurate data interpretation, better tools for communicating risk up the chain of command, and more confident decision-making.


Using the ECRAA approach via SAS Commodity Risk Solutions, companies are creating more proactive risk managers, regardless of industry: 

Utilities. A large US utility faced threats to its revenue and growth from a range of risks: market, credit commodity, regulatory, operational safety and environmental -- even reputational. It needed to simulate potential future exposures, quantify risk factors and respond with proactive management. How could it accurately measure, rate and prioritize these risks to manage and mitigate its exposure to a multiplicity of market forces?


Oil & Gas. An oil and gas giant with a global book sought an enterprise-wide view of risk, while allowing for regional differences in gas markets around the world. It needed to aggregate data from across its global operations and run the necessary analytics and reports independent of the operation of its local systems. How could it run data aggregation, end-of-day reports and risk reports globally without disrupting regional business activities in other time zones where markets were still open?

End-users. A major global manufacturing corporation uses Oracle EBS for all its accounting and general ledger activities, and it serves as the firm’s database of record for static data (counterparties, contacts, etc.). It needed to continue its current corporate processes for maintaining enterprise-wide data, as well as reduce the potential for duplicate entry and errors. How could it transfer that data directly into and out of its trading platform but only updating the data in EBS?
