aCCelerate is an award-winning operational risk software solution deployed over 85 countries across 6 continents. Focused on the financial services industry, aCCelerate is a front end configurable, out-of-the-box software solution. The suite includes powerful analytics modules for scenario analysis and capital charge modelling.

The aCCelerate suite comprises three modules:

  1. Analyser - The core module Analyser manages the day-to-day ORM activities. It has integrated functionality for risk control assessments (RCSA) across business hierarchies, external and internal loss event capture and management, configurable key indicators (KIs), flexible workflow, email integration and action tracking.
  2. Real Time Risk Analytics (RTRA) - RTRA is an Operational Risk manager’s ‘playbook’, allowing the modelling of soft data (qualitative RCSA data) for sensitivity analysis, stress testing and scenario analysis of your risk and control environment. RTRA evaluates the effectiveness of controls by giving them a monetary value. The module runs a Monte Carlo Simulation using risk and control assessment (RCA) data in order to produce expected losses.
  3. Real Time Capital Analytics (RTCA) - RTCA is a Basel II/ AMA compliant capital charge modelling module which creates economic as well as regulatory capital allocation reports. This incentivises the business towards better risk management. The modelling is performed using internal and external loss data, scenario analysis data and BIECF data in any desired weighting.
