Dresdner KleinwortDownload the full case study
Dresdner Kleinwort, the investment bank of Dresdner Bank AG, is typical of large banks, which have a vast number of autonomous spreadsheets supporting a range of business-critical functions. In 2005, Dresdner Kleinwort turned to ClusterSeven to help manage its spreadsheets, initially in the product control and finance departments, in order to reduce the operational risk inherent in running a large number of business-critical spreadsheets.
The implementation of ClusterSeven’s technology allowed Dresdner Kleinwort to control changes over its spreadsheet applications and track all changes made at a cell level. In doing so, it reduced the time spent trying to manage and maintain these applications without locking them down or reducing their effectiveness.
Model Risk Management – BankingDownload the full case study
One of the roles of this major bank’s trading floor is to provide reliable information on current and closed deals to a growing number of bank branches (currently exceeding 100). This information includes margins, positions etc.
The Bank uses a number of different trading platforms, limits and back office systems (including Kondor+, Prime, IBIS and MUREX) dealing with Bonds, FX Options, Swaps, Derivatives and other trades. Every day, from each system, a number of data extracts are loaded into a Risk database. This enables positions to be assessed and decisions made accordingly.
Unfortunately, the Risk department has noticed that input files sometimes contain invalid entries or missing data records. Undetected errors carry a risk of multiple US$10millions.

RabobankDownload the full case study
Rabobank Group is a full-range financial services provider that operates on cooperative principles. Its origins lie in the local loan cooperatives that were founded in the Netherlands nearly 110 years ago by enterprising people who had virtually no access to the capital market.
Rabobank’s spreadsheet and End User Computing (EUC) landscape on the trading floor, were identified as vast with minimal management controls. The need to demonstrate control over these spreadsheets is imperative in recognition of the demands of regulators today to eliminate spreadsheet-related mishaps.
