What we do
Flexible Rules Engine
The Flexible Rules Engine is a decision engine based system to simplify the maintenance of pricing margins and fees.
This provides transparency for pricing policies (treating the customer fairly, best execution, algo ID tracking etc) and traceability of price construction in the face of increasing industry regularity requirements.
The platform also allow sales users to respond quickly to market events whilst also simulating future pricing models for strategic scenarios and ease the onboarding of future source systems, client segments and products.
Real Time Fraud Detection
The Real Time Fraud Detection piece is a real-time event monitoring solution to detect suspicious trading activity.
Our solution uses a “big data” technology –distributed streaming and in memory processing technology to monitor real-time events.
All real-time events can be monitored — market rates, orders, trading.
Once patterns are detected, real time alerts notify specific stakeholders (front office monitoring, compliance etc.) and an investigation workflow tracks the responses.
Communica marketing automation
Communica allows Investor Relations teams to send personalized, professional Emails using rich HTML Templates, Personalized Watermarks can be applied to PDF Attached links to discourage forwarding of sensitive information.
Communica provides Email Analytics on who had opened the Emails and who has clicked on the Attached links within the Email.
Email Campaign Management processes can be streamlined using dynamics Marketing Lists, Content Snippets, Previewing and the sending of Preview Emails to Colleagues.
The Communica Compliance engine puts into practice a “marketing matrix” so sales teams know where they can and can’t market funds. The system places controls to prevent marketing activities in jurisdictions where the fund manager does not have the required authorisation or is considered to be too risky. Compliance processes are automated to make sure investors are suitable to be sent marketing information on funds (includes KYC, CDD, AML and Client Categorisations for the purpose of financial promotions) and that any jurisdictional requirements are met. This includes for the US, Switzerland and the UK. Controls to prevent non-approved investors from receiving marketing materials. To make sure all the completed processes and supporting documentation are stored in one place so investment managers can evidence to a regulator that they have done proper due diligence.
General Data Protection Act Solution
The General Data Protection Act comes into force in May 2018. With it’s stringent rules and heavy fines it is set to change the way in which Organisations do business and the requirement for data to be far better structured, more accurate and rapidly accessible.
We have a developed a solution which takes all your disparate data sources, for example, HR, CRM, Sales, finance systems and brings it together into a Central Customer Data Index which provides both security, data integrity and also rapid access to any subject access request organisations may receive. In some test cases it has been shown that these requests can take hundreds of hours of manual work to fulfil and to do this in any volume will require a system.
Our solution provides a core data index to support your central GDPR needs.
There is a significant cost to fixing defects across the Software Development Life Cycle. The later a defect is found in the development cycle the greater the costs as the related feature needs to be sent back to development and re-tested. This can then have the knock on effect of delaying a release and so delaying a whole project with potentially significant cost implications.
At Digiterre we put Test Automation at the core of Agile software development. We offer a vast spectrum of testing strategies ranging from manual GUI tests to Automated Unit Tests with variations in between (Automated GUI tests, Automated integration tests, automated component tests).
We have a track record of delivering effective testing program in large financial institutions to produce excellent software and reduce the cost of development.
Data is now recognised as the critical commodity that organisation have gathered and have failed to leverage. Big Data is not a single technology but a range of principally Open Source technologies. Benefits include speed from retrieving streaming live data, storing this immutable event store, aggregating the data of interest, and reporting on this data. Flexibility, to allow you to return to data that was captured earlier, and generate new aggregation (queries) to answer new questions. AI / Machine Learning, allowing an expert to train a machine to understand the data. Digiterre are working in the forefront of Big Data technology.
Business rule management system
The majority of modern rules engines have optimisations of the Rete algorithm at their core. Originally developed in the 1970s, Rete has evolved through academic research and commercial competition. We have expertise in designing and building software based on the Open Source Drools rules engine and its associated Business Rules Management System (BRMS). These are both cheaper to implement and more importantly, easier to customise than commercial alternatives, with an ever-growing core team at Red Hat® and a healthy community of contributors on GitHub.
React and Angular 2 (Single Page Web Applications)
QA, be it BDD or TDD, all our engineers believe testable software is maintainable software. We have dedicated QA consultants who develop tests in tools such as Specflow to encapsulate business tests.
Digiterre is an Agile business, we work on projects to deliver vertical-slices of functionality in the shortest possible time. We deliver quickly – opportunities don’t hang about, we deliver solutions as quickly as possible. Don’t be scared to change your mind – if the scope is wrong, lets find this out early and change direction.
