With IT departments stretched thin, it’s no wonder more businesses are looking to outsource their backup and disaster recovery (BDR) plan. The rise of disaster recovery as a service (DRaaS) is a big win for businesses that want their IT staff focusing on strategic business goals but still require a dependable, provable BDR deployment. Find out more by reading our white paper, 5 reasons to choose DRaaS.

As flash costs continue to drop and new, flash-driven designs help to magnify the compelling economic advantages AFAs offer relative to HDD-based designs, mainstream adoption of AFAs —first for primary storage workloads and then ultimately for secondary storage workloads — will accelerate. Well-designed AFAs that still leverage legacy interfaces like SAS will be able to meet many performance requirements over the next year or two.
Those IT organisations that aim to best position themselves to handle future growth will want to look at next-generation AFA offerings, as the future is no longer flash-optimised architectures (implying that HDD design tenets had to be optimised around) —
it is flash-driven architectures.

Tax fraud is already prevalent, and fraudsters are more sophisticated and automated than ever. To get ahead of the game in detecting fraud and protecting revenue, tax agencies need to leverage more advanced and predictive analytics. Legacy processes, systems, and attitudes need not stand in the way. To explore the challenges, opportunities, and value of tax fraud analytics, IIA spoke with Deborah Pianko, a Government Fraud Solutions Architect within the SAS Security Intelligence practice.
Failing to contain financial crime hits banks with the double impact of crime-related losses and fines imposed by regulators and law enforcement agencies. Depending on the magnitude of a bank’s failure to stem financial crime, fines can run into hundreds of millions of dollars – and even higher in exceptional cases. More importantly, institutions are keen to protect their brand from association with transnational organized-crime rings and scandals related to corruption.
This white paper, sponsored by SAS, examines the interplay between the
challenges and opportunities afforded by the growing breadth of digital channels
offered by financial institutions. Mobile wallets, real-time peer-to-peer (P2P), and
digital account opening all require the right mix of security solutions, background
analytics, and personnel to balance positive customer experience with robust
fraud protection. JAVELIN independently produced this whitepaper and maintains
complete independence in its data collection, findings, and analysis.
Digital currency is here. Consumers have demanded more choice in ways to pay merchants, move money to friends and access their accounts. Payment providers have done well to meet these expectations for immediacy and convenience in managing money. The convenience is great for account holders, but it requires financial institutions and merchants to apply fraud safeguards at the same speed, sometimes in less than a second. Each new accelerated service brings new risks.
For traditional banks, competing in an increasingly digital business environment is a challenge. And it’s getting tougher on several fronts.
First, today’s digitally oriented customers expect banks to provide an ever-higher quality experience defined by speed and the flexibility to conduct business across many channels. They’ve grown accustomed to going online and transferring money between accounts, for example, and using their mobile device to make payments and check their account balance. These kinds of experiences have raised the bar in terms of customer expectations – and banks need to keep up, or risk losing customers. This is particularly true of millennial customers, as they have little regard for loyalty, which banks have traditionally relied on to build their business. Once frustrated by inconvenience, they don’t hesitate to switch banks – and thanks to the internet, this is now a fast, painless process.
Tax evasion is the largest economic crime in the world (in terms of monetary loss), costing trillions of dollars to governments around the globe. A 2011 study by The Tax Justice Network estimates that on a global scale, total tax evasion is in excess of US$3.1 trillion, or about 5.1% of world GDP.1 And that’s just the known tax evasion and noncompliance; it doesn’t include the underground economy and cash businesses.
Physicians and their patients, medical policy makers and licensing boards, pharmaceutical companies and pharmacies all must work together to stem the opioid epidemic and achieve the fundamental objectives of reducing addiction and deaths. With so many players and data sources, today’s information is partial, fragmented, and often not actionable. We don’t have the data to understand what’s happening, to adjust policy, and to motivate physicians and patients to change their behaviors.
Better data and analytics can help develop better treatment protocols, both for pain in the first place and for remediation when patients are becoming dependent on the drugs.
Insurers have long been plagued by fraud, error, waste, and abuse in health care payments. The costs are huge – amounting to as much as 25 percent of payments made. Today’s data management and analytics platforms promise breakthroughs by incorporating comparative and behavioral data to predict as well as detect loss in all its forms. To explore the opportunities and how insurers can capitalize on them, IIA spoke with Ben Wright, Sr. Solutions Architect in SAS’s Security Intelligence Global Practice.

The underground economy is thriving, thanks in part to new technologies and business models such as digital currencies and online marketplaces for freelance services. SAS fraud specialists reveal how government agencies can uncover these activities – and the tax obligations not reported from them. A former head of compliance for the country’s fourth-largest state workers' comp program describes how a comprehensive analytics program found a tax gap of $718 million and was granted funding to double the team’s size without even asking.

Artificial intelligence and related forms of advanced analytics hold enormous potential for marketers to expand and deepen customer intelligence, improve business processes, and deliver engaging customer experiences. But many marketing organizations are just getting their feet wet in leveraging these technologies. To learn about the opportunities and challenges, IIA spoke with Analise Polsky, Business Solutions Manager, SAS Best Practices and Jonathan Moran, Principal Product Marketing Manager, SAS Customer Intelligence Solutions.
The Internet of Things (IoT) – devices and sensors connected to computing systems and networks – has received enormous attention in the last few years. The attention is due, in part, to the proliferation of connected devices, from about a million in the early 1990s to more than five billion today. In addition, the technology for connecting the devices has become more affordable and easier to integrate.
