The Power of Data in Financial Crime

With financial crimes mostly revolving round economic data, an advanced data integration and analytics are of utmost need. OFSAA (Oracle Financial Services Analytical Applications) extend robust help here with a fully integrated and most comprehensive data integration toolkit.

London, United Kingdom – January 9, 2017 – Financial crimes are on a rise of late with more than 1 in 3 American organizations reporting to have experienced such menacing issues in the past 24 months. It’s the economic data that the financial criminals are after and banks and similar financial organizations dealing with volumes of customers’ economic data are actively complying themselves with all the latest regulations. But then merely sticking to such regulations isn’t enough to systematically thwart the financial crimes. The Financial Services require sophisticated data integration and analysis by a professional financial crime solution provider to keep their data safe.

Speaking further, not all such financial crime solution providers today could render the desired advanced data integration and analysis help. The data capability of the integrator is a major point of differentiation between regular run-of-the-mill and the best solution providers. Any provider can load data in staging area and nudge it to financial crime application layer to generate alerts yet the implementation always involves lengthy tuning, consequently resulting to heightened implementation cost and extended delivery timelines. Again consistency of alert does not only depend on logics behind rules but also on completeness of dataset and integrity of its very attributes backing the algorithm and scoring. In the absence of a solid dataset, the compliance teams would end up dealing with a bunch of unwanted false positive & negatives, in need of continuous tuning exercises. As per the experts, financial crime solution providers can only be adept if they can come up with a holistic range of tools that will help to migrate & enhance data to prevent crime and aid in detection.

If one gets the data right in the initial stage, before it’s sent to ETL & staging area, the tuning headache can be avoided or minimized by a great extent. But then, not all regular financial crime solution providers you have around speak of the required upscale data management capacity or tools. Oracle scores up here with its powerful comprehensive toolkit which could be plugged into ETL layer or linked to any internal or external data sources to ingest the data & make it smarter and more accurate, prior to sending it through financial crime application layer as well as detection flow & case manager.

“If you can have your data normalized & cleansed beforehand, the false positives could be reduced and so the cost of compliance. Oracle helps you here with its holistic toolkit.
