The key message was that only 1% of fraud cases are uncovered by using IT-analyzes. This was also used by SAP® AG as an opportunity to integrate new technical analysis applications. The subsequent pre-led software made a modern impression and provided a graphically enhanced result. The system is also capable of "learning", but remains manually adjustable. Sadly the presentation remained at a high level and therefore no precise conclusions about the quality of the results could be made.
From my point of view, 1% identified fraud cases by IT tools can also be attributed to the fact that often the need for technical aids is not recognized combined with a lack of companies to support these opportunities. The Playing field is changing as the topic of "Big Data" increases awareness and therefore analysis tools for anti-fraud detection move into the spotlight. This gives hope that it does not remain at the stated 1% and the interest of such tools rises.
In conclusion it can be stated that "anti-fraud" is a still an emerging field and the 5th DIIR - Anti-Fraud Management Conference was successful.
