Outlining one of NICE Actimize’s important CDD-X solution differentiators, the report stated, “CDD-X provides real-time entity resolution capabilities to ensure a single view of the customer by identifying and resolving duplicated entity records and entity obfuscation.

The integrated solution ensures all customers and prospects are fully screened for relevant risks directly through the CDD-X platform.”
The Quadrant Knowledge SPARK Matrix report explained, “NICE Actimize’s CDD-X delivers data from premium and public data sources, via NICE Actimize’s X-Sight DataIQ solution, (actionable customer intelligence) to equip financial institutions with comprehensive and enriched intelligence on customers and counterparty risks throughout onboarding and KYC processes. X-Sight DataIQ aggregates external data sources and continuously monitors these sources for changes, such as updates in global sanctions, PEP status, corporate ownership or directorship, enforcement lists, and adverse news. The solution enables organizations to enrich customer and counterparty profiles with the latest intelligence and allows them to quickly act on opportunities and threats throughout the customer lifecycle.
“NICE Actimize’s AI-powered KYC/CDD solutions support our financial services organizations as they place stronger emphasis on establishing a risk-based approach to fighting financial crime,” said Craig Costigan, CEO, NICE Actimize. “Our solutions provide an unparalleled ability to access true and transparent business intelligence around customers and entities while managing critical compliance challenges and providing complete customer lifecycle coverage without compromising customer experience.”
The Quadrant Knowledge report concluded, “In terms of future roadmap, NICE Actimize plans to continue taking an entity-centric approach, allowing financial service organizations to look at each entity’s risk holistically across financial crime compliance verticals. The product roadmap includes the expansion of current onboarding capabilities to have more dynamic, out-of box, and intelligent onboarding processes that leverage Actimize’s integrated data intelligence for a better customer experience.”
The report also observed, “The company also plans to continue strengthening data availability and capabilities. X-Sight Marketplace & X-Sight DataIQ will continue to add data sources that help customers enrich their entity profiles and obtain a holistic view of entity risks. The company continues to invest in improving its network analytics capabilities to offer an advanced assessment of network risk. Lastly, the company is focused on developing a solution-agnostic centralized risk profile and scoring solution that synchronizes risk inputs across financial crime verticals to democratize risk information and improve financial crime risk prevention, monitoring, and detection.”
