This is the first time Gartner (News
) has compiled this report which provides a graphical representation of the marketplace and includes the company's analysis of vendors and how they measure up to criteria.

The company is able to increase insight into customer behavior in real-time through a patented, scalable and extensible analytics platform, this helps organizations to improve risk as well as compliance.

“Actimize will continue to be at the forefront of innovation by developing and delivering the most robust technology platform and solutions to help combat financial crime. Our commitment to these core goals is the reason that so many of the world’s largest financial services firms select the Actimize solutions.”
