Mining for Diamonds

Business have access to all sorts of data to improve their enterprise. Besides internal business data, a company may draw data from social media or company review websites. But sometimes, a business can obtain an even larger perspective by adding government data into the analysis. Getting the full picture of situation can be likened unto mining for diamonds. When mining, the individual workers depend on equipment to detect poisonous gas or the prized gem they seek on the other side of the earth they mine. Selecting the right equipment can make a huge difference in the lives of the workers.

Data based solutions

With Stratifyd Signals, we were able to quickly identify key insights. By knowing key words and issues, we are able to make data-based decisions. In order to improve the accuracy of credit reports, Citibank may want to consider changing its credit checking agency to Equifax, Experian or TransUnion because they raised the standard for credit report accuracy in 2015. In order to decrease the number of attempts to collect debts that are not owed, Citigroup can incorporate more verification checks though the process of lending. By increasing the times, a customer’s information is verified will also prevent identity theft.
