AxiomSL’s enterprise-data management platform delivers data lineage, risk aggregation,  workflow automation, validation and audit functionality as well as internal and external reporting capabilities including XBRL. These features provide data and process governance across the entire enterprise and give decision makers the confidence in the automation of complex reporting business logic as well as full control over every step of the process.


AxiomSL’s platform seamlessly integrates all of the firm’s existing data across the  enterprise and provides the analytics necessary to meet global regulatory standards, risk   management requirements and internal and external reporting demands.  The high-performance platform aggregates clients’ data to its lowest level of granularity from multiple silos systems, enriches and validates the data, and then runs the  data  through  relevant  calculations  and  populates the reports.  Analytical applications are delivered   in the areas of data risk management, capital and liquidity reporting while addressing evolving regulatory requirements and market dynamics.


AxiomSL’s enterprise-wide approach enables financial institutions to leverage their   existing data and risk management infrastructure without system re-engineering while delivering drill down functionality to support instant verification of aggregate numbers   down to individual accounts for improved transparency.  Further, the ability to preview results, prior to submission, enables analysis and adjustment of reported facts and ensures  accuracy.  This holistic  approach  gives institutions full control of the entire process for risk management and finance functions, data aggregation capabilities, automation of complex analytical and reporting business logic and internal and regulatory reporting.
