SAS has joined platinum partner Capgemini to help government agencies reduce revenue losses from tax and welfare fraud, and improper payments. Together, SAS and Capgemini provide an end-to-end offering in revenue fraud and improper payment protection to public sector organizations in Europe, Brazil, India and Asia-Pacific.
"There is a need for cutting-edge business analytics in the public sector. These products apply intelligent business rules and advanced predictive analytics to help governments identify subtle clues to uncover fraud in large amounts of data. Also important is end-to-end capability from data integration through detection through investigation management that can be deployed across the enterprise to address many fraud and improper payments issues on a single platform. SAS working with Capgemini is going to have dramatic impact in assisting government agencies," said Stu Bradley, Sr. Business Director, Fraud & Financial Crimes Practice, SAS.
"Governments in developed countries are under pressure to reduce spending and governments in emerging economies struggle to enforce compliance. This creates compelling reasons for tax and welfare agencies worldwide to adopt more sophisticated approaches to protecting tax revenues and tackling benefits fraud and improper payments. 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," said Ian Pretty, Global Tax & Welfare Lead, Capgemini.
