What we do

Flexible Rules Engine

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

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 marketing automation

Email Campaign Management processes can be streamlined using dynamics Marketing Lists, Content Snippets, Previewing and the sending of Preview Emails to Colleagues.

Distribution compliance

Distribution compliance

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.

Technologies

Big Data

Big Data

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

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)

React and Angular 2 (Single Page Web Applications)

In recent years we have seen a shift away from desktop applications towards the web browser.  This presents particular challenges for businesses who want to take advantage of the web’s ease of deployment and cross platform capabilities without sacrificing performance and usability. Thankfully Single Page Applications, when architected well, can provide a great user experience and display large amounts of data in a fast efficient way.  With Digiterre’s pedigree in UX and GUI design we have, over the past five years, extended our practice from Microsoft’s WPF to include the Angular and React Javascript application frameworks.  We have achieved great results with businesses looking to build new systems, as well as with those looking to migrate their existing applications to the web.  An understanding of both sides of the equation, desktop and web, is an enormous help with this. Tools and techniques change constantly in this rapidly evolving space and there is a need to be constantly abreast of the key innovations.  Our teams pool their knowledge, present to each other regularly, and share their enthusiasm for the world of Javascript.
