The package can also be extended to include functionality for fraud detection and anti-money laundering and integrates with other SAS solutions that provide intelligence on operational risk, such as human capital and IT management. Integrations with SAS Strategic Performance Management kit enables banks to create a risk scorecard for establishing and monitoring key enterprise risk performance indicators.
