Depending on the UnRisk solution different strategies working with data exist. For UnRisk Quant and UnRisk Pricing Engine no database is included in the product but a variety of supported interfaces allow the users to plug in their own data sources.
- Excel workbooks
- CSV files
- User databases via database connectors
- HDF5 files
- XML files
UnRisk Bank and UnRisk Capital Manager come with their own database and their own adaptors. These adaptors are repsonsible for the transformation of the external data into the internal data model. For some of the most widely used data providers UnRisk offers preimplemented solutions (for example Bloomberg).
The UnRisk FACTORY keeps all data in a database which can be accessed directly via SQL views or indirectly by means of a SOAP based web service. See the page on UnRisk Communication Service for examples.
