Big Data Analytics and the Impact on Fraud

Financial fraud is, unfortunately a huge business, with annual losses so massive that were “Fraud” a country, it would have the fifth highest global GDP. While enterprises in the financial services sector have always used analytical processes to detect and limit those losses, as technology moves forward the analytical capabilities that can be brought to bear increase in exponentially in capability and those on the leading edge are able to see, and stop, more fraud in less time. Just as Big Data capabilities are bringing significant business benefit to other aspects of the business, they can to fraud mitigation but several challenges need to be overcome for maximum efficiency. Only by addressing quality, volume, security, and integration challenges and by further ensuring the right staff with the right skills are in place can benefits actually be realized.

Takeaways:

  • The increased use of unmanned technology combined with ever quicker financial transaction processing has created a world ripe for the proliferation of fraud
  • In a “fight fire with fire” approach, those same machine learning approaches can be re-purposed to analyze transactions looking for the needle in the needle-stack that is the illicit one
  • A Big Data approach only works with the right foundation; garbage in garbage out has never been more true and data and process rigor is essential to success

Overall IT spending is on a downward trend as the market is pushing everyone to do more with less. Businesses of all sizes are under constant demand to be better, faster and to deliver new services to market. Development teams are challenged to drive innovation while compounding delivery cycles, however legacy processes and technologies often act as obstacles preventing agility and sucking up critical resources to accomplish low-value administrative or operational tasks.  Technology is evolving at a rapid pace to try to meet these demands, and Coho Data is leading the charge to innovate data infrastructure.

Join Chris McBride,  Vice President of Worldwide Sales for Coho Data as he leads a roundtable discussion to explore:

  • 2016 data challenges and opportunities

Driving Customer Experiences through Global-Local Interactions

Today’s global local marketplace offers tremendous opportunity, but is rife with potential pitfalls as smaller local providers are threatened by the size of global behemoths, while those global behemoths are challenged by the nimbleness of local providers. To be efficient and effective companies need to blend the best of both worlds, global economies of scale with local knowledge and flexibility, to deliver an engaging and rewarding customer experience. CIOs need to help their organizations build the capability to understand, categorize, and capitalize on small-scale local demand and address it with large-scale global capacity.

Takeaways:

  • Understand the expectations of the modern customer by seeing the impact of both local and global pressures
  • See how competitive brands go about maintaining a global brand while maintaining localized experience and feel
  • Data is the driver of the global local experience so building a capacity to capture the necessary client differentiators becomes key

FIS Case Study: Building a Cost Effective Next Gen Cloud without Compromising Service Levels and Flexibility

The drivers behind most next gen infrastructure initiatives are faster, automated access to resources and greater flexibility. But enabling speed and agility comes at a cost and over-provisioning hardware and software is often seen as a necessary evil.  

Join this session to hear how FIS has successfully leveraged predictive analytics to reduce infrastructure costs significantly while also enabling higher speed, agility and service levels. FIS will outline their approach that relies on intelligent automation of VM placements and resource allocations in order to meet workload requirements while also densifying infrastructure in order to save millions in capital and operating costs.

This session will also cover how to:

  • Significantly reduce unit costs in existing infrastructure and avoid over-provisioning when making the transition to greenfield
  • How dramatic savings can be achieved on host-based software licensing models through specific optimization strategies
  • Achieve higher levels of automation and faster access to resources
  • Leverage reservations for accurate forecasting
  • How analytics can solve the challenge of how to effectively leverage and control public cloud resources

CIO Executive Visions

Women in Technology

The importance technology plays within an enterprise will only continue to gain momentum as more developers, engineers, and programmers enter the workforce. As these segments continue to grow, so does the need for diversity of the workforce within the technology field. For a field that is severely constrained by a talent and skills gap, this influx of qualified women can only be a good thing. Beyond the basic ability to deliver on identified capabilities a diverse workforce offers a whole that is more than the sum of the parts, bringing different insights, capabilities, and strengths. Finding ways to drive and increase diversity in IT then should be a key focus for every IT executive.

Takeaways:

  • Identify the importance behind diversity in technology, opportunities, and capabilities
  • Discuss the importance of cultivating diversity at the grass-roots level and building post-secondary programs that drive female awareness of and interest in IT
  • Understand the hurdles that exist that limit the prevalence of women in IT, and what steps must be taken to lower, if not eliminate, them

Tim will share examples of Toyota applying the Internet of Things thinking and technologies to its manufacturing floor, not rejecting the principles of the Toyota Production System, but embracing and enabling it beyond what was feasible in the past.

Key Takeaways:     

  • Even world class processes such as Toyota’s can be improved through the strategic use of technology.

Using Cloud Delivered Services to Enable Business Transformation

Healthcare organizations have been slow to adopt cloud-based technologies as compared to other industries, citing concerns about data access and ownership, security, and regulatory compliance. Therefore, few healthcare organizations have developed a true Cloud enablement strategy to take advantage of these platforms. However, end-users are taking advantage of the Cloud. This typically bypasses traditional IT vetting processes, leaving IT potentially a barrier to rapid implementation. In order to prepare for and establish a Cloud-enabled digital business environment, organizations should anticipate user needs and create a business-outcome driven strategy and architecture.

Achieving Transformation for the New Tomorrow

The pressure to remain competitive in today’s environment is at extreme levels for not just organizations at a macro level, but for every group within those organizations at a micro level and nowhere is this more true than in the IT department. As economies accelerate in pace to operate in real time, expand in scope to occur across dozens of dynamic channels, and as interaction becomes the new currency in this human-centric intelligent society CIOs need to ensure they are ready for this transformational future. Join us as we investigate how IT leaders need to re-architect their department, their operations, their infrastructure, and even their personnel to not just respond, but to drive change.

Takeaways:

  • Neither businesses nor the IT departments within those businesses can afford to stand pat on current, and outmoded, business models and products/services
  • As the world becomes more technology focused and more integrated on all levels, IT needs to become an agent of change within their organization and move out of the role of just being a provided of support services
  • The need for transparency is at an all-time high - shareholders and customers alike demand visibility into the ethics and approach of companies so IT must bear this in mind as they build for the new future
