processes," said Gaurav Kapoor, Chief Operating Officer at MetricStream. He
continued, "Through our experience with clients in the financial services
sector, and in particular (re)insurance, we were able to offer TransRe the
package of solutions and expertise they needed to help support their business
decisions and reporting requirements."

MetricStream's federated information architecture offers the flexibility
needed to support the full range of risk and compliance processes, enables
multiple reporting facilities, and links to existing enterprise. In doing so,
it supports global operations. By bringing together all risk management and
compliance activities into a common enterprise-wide framework, TransRe will
benefit from enhanced process efficiency and transparency: in tracking
regulatory changes, identifying and scoping risks, conducting risk-control
self-assessments, risk monitoring and risk reporting. The architecture allows
greater collaboration across business units, while maintaining the ability to
deliver separate, local specific requirements. In doing so, manual processes
are automated, best practices are more easily identified and shared, and more
time is freed to focus on risk analysis. Company-wide dashboards will enable
real-time tracking of risk assessments, Key Risk Indicators (KRIs), and risk
mitigation activities, as well as providing support for decision-making.

In addition to risk and compliance, MetricStream's federated information
architecture supports audit management, financial compliance management,
regulatory exams management, vendor governance, IT security.
