Digital warning system - Entity Insights

Digital technology to make core processes faster, more efficient and more effective

Businesses have to deal with data from thousands of international corporate clients with hundreds of news hits a day in more than 70 languages via over 20,000 news publishers. The challenge is to keep a grip on this abundance of, often highly fragmented, information.

To help businesses overcome their information challenges, Entity Insights, built on the Google Cloud Platform, was developed. With the advent of cloud computing, api's and machine learning technology, it is possible to develop a system that draws real-time insights from global public sources.

We could fill a book with the wide variety of ways in which people need support with information and data in their daily work. Leveraging on our rich experience at PwC, four archetypal examples of the challenges of data overload and fragmentation... And the kind of solutions that Entity Insights offers.

Charles is a credit risk manager facing huge challenges in identifying early-warning signals on counterparties in the commercial banking sector. His core problem is finding the right information amongst a veritable ocean of data, much of which is published in languages that Charles doesn’t speak.
