Is Collateral Optimisation a Big Data Problem?

There is currently something of a big data revolution taking place as processing speeds increase and hardware costs decrease. Many banks already perform pre-trade data runs, generating millions of scenarios when performing Monte Carlo simulations to calculate CVA.
