From the Office to the Cloud

– A tale of transition and transformation

A recent customer success story illustrates the benefits of moving to IQ Cloud, Intech Solutions’ hosted web service for handling large volumes of address validation and geocoding processes.

Companies of all sizes and complexity, both in Australia and internationally, are either getting on board with digital transformation or risking being left behind in an increasingly cloud-focused world.
Intech Solutions delivered such a transformation for one notable client of ours in 2023, who provided some helpful feedback for other organisations considering this move.

Anti Money Laundering

Anti-Money Laundering: Beating the Odds with Graph Databases

The thorny issue of money laundering hit the headlines again recently with an announcement from Austrac that it was set to bring court action against SkyCity Entertainment Group after the regulatory agency found “systemic failures” in the casino operator’s approach to anti-money laundering (AML).

Amongst an extensive list of allegations, one key point stood out. Austrac said SkyCity “did not have a transaction monitoring program to monitor transactions and identify suspicious activity that was appropriately risk-based or appropriate to the nature, size, and complexity of SkyCity.”

Anti Money Laundering with Graph Database

Digging in the Dirt – Spotting Money Laundering with Graph Databases

In 2020, Australia’s financial crime watchdog AUSTRAC hit the Westpac bank with the biggest penalty in Australia’s corporate history – $1.3 billion – for failing to spot and stop more than 23 million instances of money laundering.

Single Entity View Single Customer View

Getting to ‘True’ with Single Customer View

Let me introduce you to Mr Peter Jones.
According to my customer database, he lives at 16 Cavendish Street in the Sydney suburb of Stanmore. However, I also have a record of a ‘P Jones’, who supposedly lives at 1/6 Cavendish Lane in the Sydney suburb of Enmore.
In my database, I also have a record of a ‘Pete F. Jones’ purchasing one of my company’s products, and another transaction, recorded several months later, where a ‘PF Jones’ orders the same item.
Who are these multiple mysterious ‘Mr Jones’ personages who are apparently residing in close vicinity to one another in the inner-city suburbs of Australia’s largest city, and purchasing similar products from my company?
Would it surprise you to learn that they are actually one and the same person?
