Uncover Exceptions Easily and Certify Financial Statements with Confidence.
With increasing regulatory requirements for financial institutions and the need for executive management to sign off on financial statements, it is critical to ensure that there is detailed visibility into the underlying financial data.

For the past decade, financial institutions have created sophisticated digital platforms for consumers to access, save, share and interact with their financial accounts. As sophisticated as these digital platforms have become, cyber criminals continue to pose an ever-present risk for everyone – from individual consumers to large corporations.
In his recent article, 2018 Outlook: Customer Experience and Security Strike a Balance,
Andrew Davies, vice president of global market strategy for Fiserv’s Financial Crime Risk Management division, explains how and why security will become a key differentiator for financial institutions as they respond to a changing landscape, which includes:
• Global payment initiatives
• Open Banking standards
• Artificial intelligence and machine learning
• Consumer demand for real-time fraud prevention and detection
Seit über 30 Jahren basiert die Datenverwaltung in Unternehmen auf relationalen Datenbanken.
Doch die modernen Verfahren für die Entwicklung und den Betrieb von Anwendungen in Kombination mit der rasant steigenden Zahl neuer Datenquellen und den immer umfangreicheren Workloads der Anwender übersteigen zunehmend die Möglichkeiten relationaler Datenbanken. Die dadurch entstehenden Einschränkungen im Hinblick auf die Flexibilität und Skalierbarkeit sowie die steigenden finanziellen Belastungen bewegen mehr und mehr Unternehmen dazu, zu alternativen Datenbanken wie MongoDB oder NoSQL zu migrieren.

The future of financial services is under pressure from profound digital disruption. Across the globe, there are forces, both regulatory and customer-led, that open up the market to new entrants and disrupt what customers are buying — and how. The advent of Open Banking is one major influence, with Open APIs paving the way for third-party developers to build applications and services independently.
This whitepaper outlines the challenges facing financial services firms and how a new approach to enterprise integration — API-led connectivity — can help banks and financial services firms not only survive, but thrive in an increasingly competitive future.

The recent economic downturn has created some formidable challenges for the retail banking industry. Fraud and identify theft are on the rise, costing banks big money and raising customer concerns about security.
The response to possible bank card fraud is one of the most important factors affecting the relationship that customers have with their bank. For customer-centric financial institutions who issue millions of bank cards, any instance of possible fraud is both a business risk to be managed and an opportunity to strengthen customer relationships.
Industry leaders from the banking and vendor landscape are working to streamline the
customer experience while closing the opportunities for fraud and exposure. Balancing
security and convenience will require an approach that combines consumer-facing
authentication (such as passwords, PINs and biometrics) with background security
measures (such as transaction and session-behavior analytics).
Enhanced regulatory pressure requires continuous evaluation of your bank’s risks. To meet these demands, the AML industry has turned to analytical/statistical methodologies to:
• Improve monitoring programs.
• Reduce false-positive alerts.
• Increase monitoring coverage.
• Reduce the rapidly escalating financial cost of maintaining AML programs.

First, today’s digitally oriented customers expect banks to provide an ever-higher quality experience defined by speed and the flexibility to conduct business across many channels. They’ve grown accustomed to going online and transferring money between accounts, for example, and using their mobile device to make payments and check their account balance. These kinds of experiences have raised the bar in terms of customer expectations – and banks need to keep up, or risk losing customers. This is particularly true of millennial customers, as they have little regard for loyalty, which banks have traditionally relied on to build their business. Once frustrated by inconvenience, they don’t hesitate to switch banks – and thanks to the internet, this is now a fast, painless process.

Case management frameworks built on business process management platforms help IT solutions architects deploy case-handling applications and offer an alternative to specialized case management applications and custom coding. According to Gartner, the complex architecture required to support case management has relegated it to the status of a niche application, typically addressed by specialist, commercial off-the-shelf application providers and system integrators. Case management as a process style is being applied in many sectors beyond government, legal and insurance, including healthcare, banking, higher education and retail. Industry and cross-industry case management frameworks are now available. "Adaptive case management" hype exceeds the reality of what buyers need.
