Unlock continuous business value from data & AI

Confidence-as-a-service, delivered with DAPPER by Deloitte and IBM

DAPPER is a fully managed analytics service that helps organizations accelerate the adoption of AI across the enterprise, allowing business users to quickly start trusting and utilizing insights from their data.

IT has a data problem. Data scientists have an IT problem. And business users need trustworthy and impactful insights, now.

Imagine: An analyst leverages a daily report to steer manual fraud inspections for a global bank. The report fetches data from several sources and uses AI algorithms to suggest inconsistent transactions. When the analyst begins her daily investigations, she quickly spots something suspicious. Through a sleek user interface and insight-generating visualizations in her report, she can quickly identify a change in normal activity patterns. She’s able to quickly spot a nuance and make a quick escalation decision. 

Her team is able to stop the fraudulent activity in its tracks and identify the malicious actor before other transactions occur. All based on the timely and trustworthy data insights her report delivered. All with confidence, delivered as-a-service.

Now imagine a different (and likely more realistic) scenario: The analyst couldn’t make sense of the data in her fraud reports for multiple days in a row. She didn’t trust the report to begin with, because the information she’d received every day was late and off-base. Because she’d been experiencing so many errors and inconsistencies in the data, she worried if she was able to share the insights, she could garner with her teams due to concerns around compliance and data security. 

And since the data was inaccurate, she failed to identify a series of large fraudulent transactions—leading the bank to dissatisfy its customers, waste time and resources mitigating the error, receive financial and regulatory consequences, and putting the brand at reputation risk.
