Big4.com; the premier social networking forum for professionals and alumni of Accenture, Andersen, BearingPoint, Capgemini, Deloitte, Ernst & Young, KPMG and PricewaterhouseCoopers, PwC; reports that the SAS Fraud Framework for Government has joined with Capgemini to help government agencies reduce revenue losses from tax and welfare fraud, and improper payments.
Big4.com reports that Capgemini combines its experience as a transformation and business analytics partner with SAS’ powerful fraud-fighting analytics technology. The two already work together on strategic risking analytics solutions used by HM Revenue & Customs, the UK tax authority, to tackle fraud and manage debt. Capgemini has also been selected to implement a SAS® business intelligence and analytics solution for the Maharashtra Sales Tax Department (MSTD) in India.
The SAS Fraud Framework uses business rules, anomaly detection, predictive modeling and social network analysis to look for possible fraud and immediately alert investigators or auditors. The software searches data for anomalies indicating fraud or error. Predictive modeling uses historical behavioral information to identify suspicious behaviors similar to known fraud patterns.
Ian Pretty, Global Tax & Welfare Lead, Capgemini commented:
“Working with SAS allows us to address the needs of governments more completely and bring the best available technologies to their business problems – wherever they are in the world and whatever the level of maturity of their tax and welfare operations.”
