For the fourth year in a row, Discover has been recognized as a FutureEdge 50 award winner. This honor is awarded to organizations pushing the edge with new technologies to advance their business for the future. Discover was recognized for READAR, a self-service platform which detects data anomalies using pattern matching in real-time. This enables teams to react to data anomalies and take action to prevent future occurrences improving operational excellence.
“We are utilizing cutting edge cloud technology to change and simplify business support processes that will save Discover money and time,” said Brent DeMar, director of Cloud Data Products at Discover. “Addressing data anomalies causes additional work for our people, preventing them from focusing on higher value projects. The new technology in READAR tackles identifying anomalies in real time and taking appropriate action with minimal delay. As we take this product innovation to the next level, READAR will soon work to detect anomalies at the business process level and even learn to predict for things we aren’t explicitly monitoring.”
“This year’s class of FutureEdge winners demonstrated enormous innovation, creativity and resilience as they grappled to advance their businesses during a challenging 2020,” said Anne McCrory, group vice president, Customer Experience & Operations, IDG Communications, Inc. and the FutureEdge 50 Awards chair. “We are honored to showcase their initiatives and recognize the teams made them happen as they create a future edge for their organizations through technology.”
Discover will accept its award at the Future of Work Summit held virtually September 21 – 23, 2021.
