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.

General Data Protection Act Solution

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.

Automated Testing

Automated Testing

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.

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.
