This time, Take The Shortcut is all about alerts! Two of our Dataiku Business Solutions specifically created to view, manage, and improve system alerts, to be more precise. They were designed for individuals working on two different but common topics to retail banks or finance funds: Anti-Money Laundering (AML) and News Sentiment on Stocks.

News Sentiment Stock Alert is the perfect solution for portfolio analysts or trading teams to identify in real-time news items of most relevance in a portfolio. What’s more, it can be used to explore past trends to best understand what news might drive portfolio volatility in the future.

AML Alert Triage, meanwhile, is the solution to helping AML case managers or model reviewers to prioritize alerts based on machine learning to any existing AML process. Tackling higher risk alerts faster improves case management performance, and the included model explainability tools allow refinement of existing AML business rules.

Before exploring these two topics further, a short summary of Dataiku Business Solutions, what they’re about, and how you can use them in your day-to-day work to achieve real-world business value!
