VANCOUVER — December 9, 2015 — ACL today announced highlights of the company’s Fall 2015 product release including new interactive content, fresh GRC platform user experiences, and advanced data analytics capabilities. The release further embeds industry best practices and modern design into the product experience.

Data-driven analytics will often uncover transactions that may indicate material risk, but need to be reviewed by professionals to determine whether they are valid business transactions, exceed thresholds, contravene policy, indicate fraud, or risk regulatory non-compliance.
Fall 2015 enhancements to ACL’s Analytics platform enable users to better ingest unstructured data, do more advanced predictive analysis, create better data visualizations, develop more valuable analysis apps, and more powerfully combine data analytic results with organizational human knowledge.
“We’re looking at 16 different types of risk that go from strategic risk, credit liquidity and market risk, through a number of operational risks. And then, of course, reputational risk, which is ever so important these days,” notes Kevin Moylan, Corporate Vice President, Strategic Risk Officer at Cathay Bank. “ACL is evolving the platform in a way that is valuable to us. Being able to create projects in the system, to send surveys out to people, to have them then provide attestation back to us is really vitally important.”
