Looking back at a great Vision 2012,
Vision 2012 was a great event with many customers speaking, partners and market analysts.
Customer Advisory Board
The IBM Customer Advisory Board came together in Monday, the day before the event officially kicked off to discuss the IBM Integrated Risk roadmap and to prioritize future development initiatives.
Keynotes were presented by Les Rechan (General Manager IBM Business Analytics), Mark Loughridge (CFO IBM) and Alison Levine.
Les opened with an energy level high as always! Mark gave a great insight in the financial transformation IBM has gone through and the road ahead. Alison delivered a key note where the whole room hung on her every word. Astonishing how Alison can present and what an inspiring lady she is.

Market Analysts impressed by IBM Risk Portfolio
analysts could be found in
Operational risk is still strong as ever but Policy & Compliance management, IT Risk & Governance and Audit capabilities have grown to such maturity level that IBM is top in Risk Analytics.
Customers are expanding on their GRC Environment
Clients speaking at the 2 main event days were all expanding their platform to multi discipline risk. Especially risk convergence, standardization, enterprise risk management, IT Risk & Compliance and Fraud & Financial Crimes were topics that came across many times.
IBM implemented OpenPages
IBM has implemented OpenPages herself, and demonstrated that at day 2. Deborah Dunagan, IBM Transformation Executive demonstrated how IBM reduced her risk cycle times with 30% using IBM OpenPages!
With all this excitement we are looking forward to another great year and client success in Risk Analytics.
