Innovative non-statistical approach allows insurers to pinpoint risks overlooked by traditional statistics

London/Frankfurt, March 14, 2013 – Financial services analysis firm Celent published report titled ‘Claims Fraud Detection Systems: 2012 IT Vendor Spectrum’ by respected insurance Senior Analyst Nicolas Michellod (bio).

This research note profiles BearingPoint's HyperCube, a complex event intelligence solution, specifically applied to insurance fraud detection issues.

HyperCube is a root cause analysis tool capable of processing huge amounts of data to reveal risks or opportunities previous undetectable by traditional statistical methods.

Managing claims fraud always has been known to have a direct impact on bottom line. With HyperCube, insurers can also have a finer appreciation of multiple non-correlated variables to build new or improve existing fraud solutions. In addition it addresses actuarial calculations and allows a more selective approach on risk underwriting, a top line contributor.
