Deloitte and IBM have announced a new product – DAPPER, an AI-enabled managed analytics solution. Together, these two organizations have been helping enterprises accelerate the adoption of hybrid cloud and artificial intelligence (AI) for over 20 years and implement the Deloitte Analytics Platform for over 10 years. With DAPPER, organizations will be able to trust insights obtained from their data through an integrated, secure managed service offering that aims to address the challenges surrounding AI adoption.

Evaristus Mainsah, GM, Hybrid Cloud, and Edge Ecosystem, IBM, said, “Today’s announcement is another proof point of the companies’ long-time collaboration to help clients modernize with advanced technology. Together, Deloitte and IBM have created a flexible hybrid cloud engine that can extract real value for clients by using AI to make the most of their data. DAPPER will drive transformation, spur innovation, and reshape the business to pave a pathway to digital dominance.”

DAPPER represents a collaboration among Deloitte and IBM as leaders in business and technology. DAPPER offers a fully managed AI solution built with Deloitte Analytics Platform and IBM Cloud Pak for Data on Red Hat OpenShift to avoid the time and resources involved in creating a bespoke AI solution.

Richard Houston, Senior Partner, and CEO Deloitte North & South Europe said, “DAPPER is built on 10 years of Deloitte’s business and technology innovation. It represents another market-leading example of how Deloitte and IBM have combined technology, experience, and industry knowledge to help clients turn data into insights—quickly, reliably, and repeatedly.”

Deloitte and IBM can enhance industry analytics and business intelligence applications via DAPPER so that organizations can focus on business outcomes through trusted reporting and AI solutions.

Through DAPPER, Deloitte and IBM help governments address fraud such as tax fraud, benefit fraud, pension fraud, and money laundering. An analytics cloud can collect and help users report upon siloed data across disparate data centers with the help of DAPPER, enabling the provision of advanced AI algorithms, operational reports, and supporting the requirements of regulatory compliance required by clients. It is delivered as a managed service offering and is designed to be deployed in weeks rather than months, using data collected from various business units or government agencies in this case.
