The key characteristic separating the Leaders category from the Challengers category in the Ovum report was a consistently strong all-round performance in offering financial institutions enterprise-wide platform coverage. In other areas of the Decision Matrix report, NICE Actimize also excelled as number one in the Market Leaders-Technology category ranking transaction fraud prevention providers, as well as ranking number one for its integrated anti-financial crime focus.

According to the report, NICE Actimize's Enterprise Risk Case Manager (ERCM) is one of the leading anti-financial crime platforms available in the market.

Fully scalable, the ERCM suite offers financial services organizations of all sizes market-leading capabilities, both for enhancing existing systems and for net-new deployments.
