Digital Reasoning Announces Availability of Synthesys® 3.8: Advances in Cognitive Computing Help Financial Institutions Proactively Analyze Data to Comply with Regulations

Digital Reasoning, the company that enables automated understanding of human communication, today announced General Availability of Synthesys® 3.8, the latest release of their patented machine learning platform.

Synthesys 3.8 includes the following enhancements for customers and partners:

  • Automated Profile Generation: Synthesys automatically identifies and aggregates knowledge about People (date of birth, place of birth, spouse, employers, titles, etc.) and Organizations (child organizations, headquarters, members, date founded, founded by, etc.). These profiles are fundamental building blocks when gathering knowledge about the real world to make relevant predictions about future behavior of employees, customers or bad actors.
  • Knowledge Visualization: Synthesys Glance™ is a new Web application optimized for mobile and tablet devices that enables analysts to interactively browse and analyze knowledge profiles of People and Organizations to discover valuable patterns and relationships that were previously difficult to detect in their data.
  • Real-Time Query Processing: Synthesys response times are up to 30X faster when performing analysis on large data sets. Synthesys now provides real-time analysis via Cloudera Impala, the massively parallel processing (MPP) query engine that runs natively on Apache Hadoop. Impala enables interactive queries to data stored in HDFS and HBase without requiring data movement or transformation, providing out-of-the-box integration with leading BI tools via its SQL-compliant interface.
  • Cloud Delivery: Synthesys is available as an Amazon Machine Image (AMI) that contains all the software necessary to run Synthesys on an Hadoop/HBase cluster under Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) making it easier than ever to unlock the value trapped inside your data.

Today’s risk and compliance analysts are overwhelmed by the exploding volume of unstructured data (e.g. emails, instant messages, voice, documents), the variety and speed of emerging regulatory controls, and the increasing sophistication of people looking to orchestrate and conceal illegal activities. Cognitive computing is quickly becoming an indispensable technology in the era of Big Data as humans can offload time-consuming and repetitive tasks to intelligent software with highly accurate and consistent results.

These advanced capabilities to automatically understand and explore unstructured information are necessary as federal agencies, banks, and others face an ever-increasing number of regulatory demands on electronic communications including Anti-Money Laundering (AML) and Know Your Customer (KYC) regulations as stipulated in Section 312 and 314a of the Patriot Act, the Bank Secrecy Act, and the Financial Action Task Force (FATF) 40+9 Recommendations, Consumer Protection regulations under Dodd-Frank and the Foreign Accounts Tax Compliance Act (FATCA).

According to Paul Miller, Analyst at GigaOM Research, “Tools and techniques from the big data sector offer the means to monitor human-generated data across an organization’s different IT environments, protecting key assets and ensuring that regulatory obligations are met in a cost-effective and timely manner.”

“Reduction of false positives and increase of true positives is a key concern for the financial services industry when looking for exceptions to internal compliance policies,” said Bill DiPietro, vice president of product management at Digital Reasoning. “Financial Institutions are seeing over a 250% increase in surfacing compliance violations when compared to existing production systems using keyword search, while reducing erroneous alerts.”

“Digital Reasoning’s ability to analyze and understand human communications at scale is a valuable solution for customers looking to unify the management of their structured and unstructured information,” said Tim Stevens, vice president for business and corporate development at Cloudera. "Partnering with Digital Reasoning ensures that our joint customers have access to leading technology, like Impala, for massive parallel processing, accelerating customers' speed to insight via leading BI tools."

"People are a lot more knowledgeable about APIs now. There are two types of people who work with APIs - IT people who want to use APIs for something internal and the product managers who want to do something outside APIs for people to connect to them," explained Roberto Medrano, Executive Vice President at SOA Software, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at Cloud Expo, held Nov 4–6, 2014, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
Performance is the intersection of power, agility, control, and choice. If you value performance, and more specifically consistent performance, you need to look beyond simple virtualized compute. Many factors need to be considered to create a truly performant environment. In his General Session at 15th Cloud Expo, Harold Hannon, Sr. Software Architect at SoftLayer, discussed how to take advantage of a multitude of compute options and platform features to make cloud the cornerstone of your online presence.

The ads focus on delivering ROI - how improved uptime delivered $6M in annual ROI, improving customer operations by mining large volumes of unstructured data, and how data tracking delivers uptime when it matters most.
Cultural, regulatory, environmental, political and economic (CREPE) conditions over the past decade are creating cross-industry solution spaces that require processes and technologies from both the Internet of Things (IoT), and Data Management and Analytics (DMA). These solution spaces are evolving into Sensor Analytics Ecosystems (SAE) that represent significant new opportunities for organizations of all types. Public Utilities throughout the world, providing electricity, natural gas and water, are pursuing SmartGrid initiatives that represent one of the more mature examples of SAE. We have s...
Since 2008 and for the first time in history, more than half of humans live in urban areas, urging cities to become “smart.” Today, cities can leverage the wide availability of smartphones combined with new technologies such as Beacons or NFC to connect their urban furniture and environment to create citizen-first services that improve transportation, way-finding and information delivery. In her session at @ThingsExpo, Laetitia Gazel-Anthoine, CEO of Connecthings, will focus on successful use cases.
The Internet of Things will greatly expand the opportunities for data collection and new business models driven off of that data. In her session at @ThingsExpo, Esmeralda Swartz, CMO of MetraTech, discussed how for this to be effective you not only need to have infrastructure and operational models capable of utilizing this new phenomenon, but increasingly service providers will need to convince a skeptical public to participate.

DevOps Summit 2015 New York, co-located with the 16th International Cloud Expo - to be held June 9-11, 2015, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY - announces that it is now accepting Keynote Proposals. The widespread success of cloud computing is driving the DevOps revolution in enterprise IT. Now as never before, development teams must communicate and collaborate in a dynamic, 24/7/365 environment. There is no time to wait for long development cycles that produce software that is obsolete at launch. DevOps may be disruptive, but it is essential.
Almost everyone sees the potential of Internet of Things but how can businesses truly unlock that potential. The key will be in the ability to discover business insight in the midst of an ocean of Big Data generated from billions of embedded devices via Systems of Discover. Businesses will also need to ensure that they can sustain that insight by leveraging the cloud for global reach, scale and elasticity.

There is no doubt that Big Data is here and getting bigger every day. Building a Big Data infrastructure today is no easy task. There are an enormous number of choices for database engines and technologies. To make things even more challenging, requirements are getting more sophisticated, and the standard paradigm of supporting historical analytics queries is often just one facet of what is needed. As Big Data growth continues, organizations are demanding real-time access to data, allowing immediate and actionable interpretation of events as they happen. Another aspect concerns how to deliver ...
