  • Publication number: 20150081564
    Abstract: Embodiments relate to privacy preserving content analysis. A recoverable hash operation is performed on text information to produce hashed text information in a business-to-business system. The business-to-business system includes a business-to-business transaction gateway coupled to a plurality of enterprise computer systems. A non-recoverable hash operation is performed on numerical information to produce hashed numerical information in the business-to-business system. The hashed text information and the hashed numerical information are provided from the business-to-business transaction gateway to an analytics engine to perform encrypted content analysis. The text information and the numerical information are provided from one of the enterprise computer systems as a producer system to another of the enterprise computer systems as a consumer system through the business-to-business transaction gateway.

  • 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: 20150081542
    Abstract: Embodiments relate to analytics driven assessment of transactional risk daily limits (TRDLs). Customer data that includes historical transaction data and customer profile data associated with a customer is accessed by a processor. Economic data from an external data source is accessed via a network. A TRDL assessment model is applied, by a processor, to the customer data and the economic data to generate a TRDL for the customer.

  • Publication number: 20150081483
    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: 20130346996
    Abstract: A processor-implemented method, system and/or computer program product allocates multiple resources from multiple organizations. A series of requests for multiple resources from multiple organizations is received. The multiple resources are required to accomplish a specific task, and each of the multiple resources is assigned a probability of consumption. Probabilities of availability of the multiple resources are then determined and transmitted to the organizations.

  • Publication number: 20120035971
    Abstract: A computer implemented method, program product, and/or system allocate human resources to a cohort. At least one attribute held by each member of a group of human resources is identified. A request is received, from a planned cohort, for multiple human resources that collectively possess a set of predefined attributes, wherein no single human resource possesses all of the predefined attributes. The set of human resources that satisfies the request is identified and assigned to the planned cohort.
