  • Publication number: 20160034323
    Abstract: A method of characterizing relationships among spatio-temporal events and a system to characterize the relationships are described. The method includes receiving information specifying the spatio-temporal events and associated categories from one or more sources. The method also includes building, using a processor, a directed acyclic graph (DAG) indicating a relationship among the categories for each of two or more space lag (SL) and time lag (TL) sets. Each of the two or more SL and TL sets defines a spatio-temporal boundary such that only the spatio-temporal events and the associated categories with (SL,TL)-neighborhoods inside the respective spatio-temporal boundary are considered in building the respective DAG. The respective (SL,TL)-neighborhood of each of the spatio-temporal events is a polygonal shape defined by the respective SL and the respective TL and the respective (SL,TL)-neighborhood of each of the categories is a union of the (SL,TL)-neighborhoods of the associated spatio-temporal events.

  • Publication number: 20150081388
    Abstract: An aspect of customer selection processes includes classifying, by a computer processor, customers of an entity into groups based on commonly shared, predefined characteristics among the customers. For each of the groups: services rendered for corresponding customers are identified; for each of the services rendered, a risk relationship and a reward relationship between each of the corresponding customers and the service is determined; and for each of the services rendered, a score that defines a combination of the risk relationship and the reward relationship is calculated. For each of the services rendered by the entity, the corresponding score is applied to a candidate customer having a set of characteristics matching the characteristics of one of the groups, and the service is offered to the candidate customer as a function of the score.

  • Publication number: 20150081519
    Abstract: An aspect of product pricing includes classifying customers into groups based on shared, predefined characteristics and financial transactions, and identifying services rendered and available but not rendered. For each customer, a risk associated with a service is estimated; availability and prices of the service by third parties are determined; a price for the service set by the entity is compared with the prices set by the third parties; and a demand for the service of the entity is estimated as a function of the availability and prices of the service by the third parties. For each customer, a probability that the customer will purchase the service is estimated based on the demand, and a price for the service that is customized for the customer is calculated, as a function of the risk, the demand, and the probability of purchase, and in view of a target profit and/or target revenue.

  • Publication number: 20150081524
    Abstract: Embodiments relate to analytics driven assessment of transactional risk daily limit (TRDL) exceptions. A transaction that includes a request to make a payment from an account associated with a customer is received and it is determined that processing the payment will result in exceeding a TRDL. Customer data including historical transaction data and customer profile data associated with the customer is accessed by a processor. Economic data from an external data source is accessed via a network from an external data source. A TRDL exception assessment model is applied, by the processor, to the transaction, the customer data, and the economic data to generate an approval recommendation for the request and a confidence level associated with the approval recommendation.

  • Publication number: 20150081491
    Abstract: Embodiments relate to intraday cash flow optimization. Transactions are accessed on a business-to-business integration network from a plurality of sources linked with payment delivery system data from a financial service system. The transactions are associated with two or more compartmentalized entities. The transactions are characterizes based on the payment delivery system data and an analysis of customer profile data. The transactions associated with two or more compartmentalized entities are linked as integrated information based on the characterizing of the transactions. An intraday receivables prediction engine and an intraday payables prediction engine are applied to the integrated information to produce an estimation of intraday cash flow. The estimation of intraday cash flow is monitored relative to intraday operations optimization conditions. An alert is generated based on determining that at least one of the intraday operations optimization conditions is met.

  • Publication number: 20150081481
    Abstract: Embodiments relate to analytics-driven automated reconciliation of financial transactions. External information is correlated with a plurality of financial transaction reconciliation exceptions associated with a sequence of financial transactions over a period of time. A plurality of causal factors is identified from the external information associated with a pattern of the financial transaction reconciliation exceptions. A plurality of more recent financial transactions is monitored for the causal factors. An exception prediction alert is issued based on identifying the causal factors in the more recent financial transactions prior to detecting a new financial transaction reconciliation exception associated with the more recent financial transactions.
