Financial Crime Analytics Utility

Power together: Innovative risk and compliance management—applied now.

Data-driven collaboration for efficient compliance

Banks continue to face rising costs and complexities in meeting financial crimes compliance. Instead of investing more heavily in isolated and difficult-to-maintain software-based crimes compliance systems, progressive banks can take a more convenient route: Broadening advanced analytics beyond their own walls and applying data-driven insight across all BSA/AML and fraud-monitoring activities.

The Accenture Financial Crime Analytics Utility can help. It’s a secure, standardized, data analytics-as-a-service platform, developed in partnership with the Mid-Size Bank Coalition of America (MBCA). Built on the innovative Accenture Insights Platform—a Big Data solution hosted on the Amazon Web Services cloud, with a stack of preconfigured best-in-class data, analytics and machine learning tools—the Utility draws on a wealth of data and analytics tools to help banks collaborate toward protecting customers and shareholders while improving efficiency ratios and the enterprise control environment.
