AnalytiX DS – A Cost Effective and Robust Data Management Platform

AnalytiX™ DS  – A cost effective and robust data management platform.

One of the core requirements of NY DFS Regulation 504 is the need to certify that governance and management of the data being used for transaction monitoring and sanction detection are fit for that purpose.  A financial institution must have documentation that demonstrates an appropriate level of control and clearly outlines how and what information flows from one system to another.

AnalytiX™ DS provides an agile, unified data management platform designed to govern, accelerate and automate data integration processes,  replacing manual processes with software to be more effective and efficient.

The unified platform offers total governance of the Software Development Life Cycle (SDLC) process with specialized software designed to govern integration projects:

  • functional requirements documentation.
  • source to target data mapping process.
  • maintenance of version control and auditability.
  • standardization as well as accelerated delivery and governance of each phase of the SDLC.
Matrix AML – Accelerator for Model Testing and Validation

Matrix AML saves users time and money vs. traditional methodologies by identifying optimal thresholds that minimize false positives much earlier in the tuning process.  Traditionally large numbers of alerts are generated, each of which needs to be investigated.  Extensive qualitative investigative efforts by a team are required, and it is necessary to generate a detailed log and audit of behavior before conclusions can be drawn.  And it can be challenging to explain complex statistical analyses to senior management.

Matrix AML offers alternative risk model validation solutions utilizing synthetic data sets that are configurable to mirror the financial institution’s authentic data model.  As a result, white noise can quickly be identified and the process to baseline Suspicious Activity Monitoring (SAM) tuning thresholds is accelerated.  Saving time and money.

Separate data sets can be produced for risk models illustrating a financial institution’s risk scenarios (burst, structuring round dollar etc.) and these sets can be used to baseline SAM tuning thresholds.  Additionally, the effectiveness of sanctions list filtering can be tested and validated.  The various data sets are combined to test and validate final threshold settings.  With no need to justify changes in segmentation, threshold boundaries and other parameters using statistical analysis, as Matrix AML’s tools quantify results and suggest optimal segmentation and threshold boundaries.

Matrix AML can be used in post-implementation and periodic risk model validation as required by FED SR11-7 and DFS §504.3.

DF2020 – Chatbot Author

Complex knowledge and requirements covering regulatory, statutory, and legal matters, retained in document form, are no longer fit for purpose. While necessary, these documents for many resources are difficult to use and easy to misuse.

By using Chatbots to create, share, measure and improve knowledge transfer for transaction monitoring and fraud alerts, firms can provide management and regulators with an audit trail that is measurable and insightful, with no room for ambiguity.

DF2020 particularly delivers a unique chatbot author that enables everyone to create, share and measure their own human-controlled chatbots.
