Mathai says that the modeling is done at the raster level but the risk is aggregated to the political geography as an index. The model results are then reloaded into an Oracle Spatial database. According to information provided by Oracle, the Gradient Analysis tool - part of the i-aXs suite of portfolio management solutions - shows the relative impact of losses to a client's portfolio at a specific risk level, by geographic area. According to Mathai, "With this tool, clients can develop a realistic underwriting strategy that allows them to plan their business growth and attrition in a more formalized, detailed and effective way."
Guy Carpenter was just recently recognized by Oracle with its Oracle Spatial Excellence "Innovator of the Year" Award at the Oracle Spatial Special Interest Group User's Meeting in Orlando this past April.
