Why do BI solutions struggle so much when it comes to market risk analytics?

Risk management is built upon a series of measures that, many times, do not linearly compute. Non-linear aggregation is something many technologies struggle with, especially when they have not been designed for that. In addition, the size of the datasets has expanded greatly over the past few years, particularly due to regulatory requirements. Again, while most BI platforms can work very well on a few gigabytes, it takes specialized technology to enable the analysis of terabytes of data – which is now the norm at virtually every mid-size bank.
