The Microsoft Surface is being used to showcase Detica NetReveal® technology which has revolutionised the detection of fraud and organised crime.

Detica NetReveal® is used by global banks and insurers, government and law enforcement agencies to fight against a range of criminal threats.

In the financial services sector, Detica NetReveal® is an enterprise fraud management solution which uncovers networks of suspicious behaviour by identifying and scoring networks of customers and accounts across an organisation's complete portfolio of products and brands.

In the government sector, it enables agencies to generate intelligence that will identify and counter those who threaten the safety of the public, the security of the state or that seek to commit serious and organised crime.

The Microsoft Surface TM is a revolutionary surface computing platform that displays content on a 76cm (30 inch) tabletop screen using hand gestures and real world objects. It helps customers interact with technology in a way that is simple, intuitive—and unprecedented.

“Bringing together the two technologies is about changing the way we think about interaction with information. The surface gives us the ability to interact with a computing platform in a tactile way, using our hands to bring out and orient information on a flat plane in a manner that resonates with the way we think,” explains Simon Langsford, General Manager for Intelligence & Information Systems with BAE Systems Australia.

“Similarly the NetReveal technologies are about changing volumes of data into information that a true intelligence professional can use effectively. Together these technologies change the way we interact with information and the manner in which we visualise and manage threats,” Mr Langsford said.

“Microsoft Surface is really shifting the way we think and interact with technology and its multi-touch features enable BAE to interact more naturally with their NetReveal data and information allowing for easier collaboration,” says Louis Rago, Defence and National Security Lead, Microsoft Australia.
