Marsh & McLennan’s (MMC - Free Report) global management consulting unit Oliver Wyman along with the market-leading risk management platform, Corridor Platforms, recently announced a strategic partnership to offer banks and non-bank financial institutions solutions and help update and digitize credit extension, transactions and end-to-end risk management.

The tie-up will combine Corridor Platforms’ unique, modular and cloud-based risk management platform that assists in credit modeling, loan valuation and real-time policy execution with Oliver Wyman’s competence in risk management, such as next-generation risk analytics, model development and data or process management.

Notably, Corridor is the perfect partner for this strategic move as it has first-hand experience in this area and also launched an integrated solution that allows companies to take a step forward in the direction of state-of-the-art analytics in risk and more.

This new platform would easily boost the efficiency and capability of decision-making across the customer lifecycle, allowing clients to unveil real business advantages from their investments in big data and analytics. The solution will cater to customers in a way that they can fully utilize their assets and existing capabilities and at the same time integrate with the fast-emerging open source technologies.

There are many solutions out there that help extract new data sources and enable experimentation with the machine learning-based models but this Corridor Platforms service works on how to assimilate the same with internal advancements in current systems.
