As modeling techniques and forecasting models become increasingly complex, the technology to apply them becomes increasingly harder to implement and understand. A time comes when a financial institution or a business questions whether the software they are using is doing what they think it is. Old systems, patched multiple times to account for minor changes, may be taking a business far from the goal that the business wants to pursue.
We help review and test software implementations to ensure that they work, that they are doing what they are purported to do, and that they communicate effectively with other segments of a business to obtain and disseminate information correctly. We stress-test software to find flaws and determine where systems might break down.
We translate the gobbledy-gook offered in the software documentation to explain what the program is really doing, what assumptions are being made, and where the software is sensitive to faulty inputs. The best software has problems, and a business has to guard against being a victim of its own mechanisms.
