A Q&A With Cloudera and TAI Solutions:

What are some real-life success stories of financial services customers that TAI Solutions worked on, what Cloudera services were implemented, and what were the business outcomes achieved?

  • Christian Simonelli, of TAI Solutions: One of Italy’s major banks, working with TAI, reorganized their existing data lifecycle management processes to explore advanced machine learning scenarios, streaming analytics, and data lineage capabilities. They deployed a proof-of-concept version of CDP Private Cloud and CDP Public Cloud, facilitating the client’s exploration of Cloudera’s hybrid cloud functionalities and a new data model. The client opted to adopt Kafka and Flink with Iceberg on Cloudera Private Cloud for streaming analytics scenarios and Cloudera Machine Learning and Data Warehouse on CDP Public Cloud for machine learning model development and data visualization applications.

What are some of the reasons that TAI Solutions’ customers choose Cloudera?  

  • Christian: TAI Solutions’ customers choose Cloudera due to its adaptability to specific reference cases, its open-source and market standard solutions, comprehensive suite of data services, and successful adoption in the cloud, offering continuity with on-premises solutions in terms of governance and interface. The decision to implement the SDX layer, capable of abstracting technology present on-premises and in the cloud, has been successful in realizing hybrid on-premises/cloud solutions without the need to modify organizational processes.

Regulation and risk are a big focus for financial institutions. Can you elaborate a bit more on that?

  • Joe Rodriguez, Sr. Managing Director Financial Services for Cloudera: Regulations like Basel IV, the EU AI Act, DORA, GDPR, and ESG regulations require more transparency, better controls, and exponentially more data and compute, presenting a complex challenge for banks, particularly around data management. Implementing a modern data architecture is vital to compliance, and those banks that can underpin compliance with such an architecture will be well prepared.

What are some of the business use cases financial services customers are focused on to use AI?

  • Joe: There are promising use cases for traditional ML/AI in financial services, including risk management, credit scoring and loan underwriting, anti-money laundering, and process automation. Generative AI also provides a range of new opportunities, such as personalized customer experiences, automated content creation, risk and compliance analysis, and trading and portfolio optimization.

Helping Financial Services Customers Take on Data Analytics and AI

The partnership between Cloudera and TAI Solutions is well-positioned to help financial services customers navigate the complexities of data analytics, ML/AI, and GenAI, while ensuring compliance with evolving regulations. As the financial services market continues to grow and evolve, the importance of data-driven insights and digital transformation will only increase, making partnerships like this crucial for the sector’s future success.
