DTBA Analytics advises clients on managing business controversy and conflict, executing deals, and maintaining regulatory compliance. We help clients address serious business concerns across a range of corporate activities, such as completing transactions and strategic investments, investigating and deterring potential fraud, managing the litigation process, and preparing for reorganization.

Our work in these areas has earned us recognition as leader among advisory firms. In fact, Kennedy Consulting Research & Advisory ranked Deloitte #1 globally in Forensics and Dispute Advisory Services in 2013, and Deloitte was named a 2013 Kennedy Vanguard Leader in both Forensic & Investigative Services and Dispute Advisory & Analysis Services based on breadth and depth of capabilities.

DTBA Analytics is a fast-growth practice within Deloitte FAS that centers around several of the hottest areas of business today – analytics, forensic analysis, and litigation support – and the specialized skills that make careers in these areas both fascinating and in high-demand. Our Analytics team makes extensive use of data, statistical and quantitative analysis, rules-based methods, and explanatory and predictive modeling to bring insights to client issues in the forensic and transaction domains. We work with Deloitte specialists in many areas, and we apply our solutions to a wide range of highly interesting and complex corporate events, such as forensic investigations, anti-corruption compliance, restructuring, valuation, anti-money laundering compliance, and construction management, to explain what has occurred in the past and to support informed decision making for the future. Our work increasingly employs specialized competencies, such as advanced analytics, visualization, and geospatial techniques.

DTBA Analytics is composed of two Service Areas, which share similar approaches, but offer different experiences and skillsets:

Data Analytics:

  • Data Analytics: This involves strategic analysis of structured (e.g. transactional) and unstructured (e.g. text) electronic data, from initial data scoping and collection through transformation and validation, for purposes of deep data analysis and mining. This analysis is performed as the basis for larger efforts that include rules- and indicator-based testing, inductive reasoning, and visualization techniques. These methods are used to identify, deter, and prevent fraud schemes and scenarios, develop models that depict or describe historical events, and build predictive models for future anti-fraud and anti-corruption efforts. Analytical methods are also commonly used to mine and develop insights into large volumes of data to help navigate intricate legal processes and identify areas of opportunity for business process improvement. Additionally, analytics is often used to assist troubled companies in peer analysis, quantifying opportunity cost, and discerning areas of strategic improvement.
  • Application Development: From standalone tools to enterprise web applications, we leverage a modern proprietary services-based development platform and agile methodology to assist clients with processing data, presenting findings, and documenting decisions. We serve both external clients and internal clients with a focus on enhancing existing FAS products and service offerings

Advanced Analytics:

  • Economic and Statistical Consulting: Here, we apply advanced economic, finance, and quantitative techniques to address complex business and legal challenges, creating strategies and providing expert testimony for government agencies, leading law firms, and corporations. These techniques include development of economic and statistical models and the application of state-of-the-art analytical tools to uncover patterns and correlations in complex data to help predict likely future outcomes.
  • Geospatial Consulting: We analyze geographic data, using a combination of spatial software and analytical methods, to assist clients in making strategic decisions, reducing risks, increasing efficiency, and realizing organization goals.
  • FAS Analytics Institute (FAI): This is a team of analytics experts from industry and academia, dedicated to researching and developing FAS' advanced analytics capabilities in text, visual, predictive, and geospatial analytics. The FAI develops advanced analytics techniques and approaches that lead to enhancement of existing FAS products and services or the creation of new FAS products and services.

In addition, DTBA Analytics professionals are positioned to team with and provide leadership and guidance to broader Deloitte-wide analytics initiatives and global opportunities. Our practitioners have the opportunity to stay current on the latest analytics tools and techniques, as well as industry and regulatory-specific developments. From a career development standpoint, we offer unparalleled opportunities for personal and professional development afforded by our client base, engagement volume, global exposure, and mentoring programs. In addition to on-the-job training, Data Analytics offers live, in-person, and virtual learning opportunities, external development courses, a four-week boot camp program for campus hires, and an in-person national DTBA Analytics meeting for all practitioners.

Examples of areas in which DTBA Analytics has delivered value to clients include:

  • Enhancing a transaction-monitoring program for a financial services client by assisting them in the development of a methodology to analyze, test, and tune various detection scenarios, and assisting them in deploying that methodology.
  • Delivering an analytics solution that created a predictive coding model to assist a financial services client with identifying and categorizing an enormous volume of privileged and non- privileged documents related to a large bankruptcy case.
  • Helping to resolve a royalty distribution dispute in the client's favor by developing and articulating an economic model that showed how to determine the relative market value of the copyrighted content.

Our dedicated Deloitte FAS professionals bring vast experience, specialized skill sets and deep industry knowledge to our clients. This personalized level of service, combined with the market reach and technical resources of the Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu Limited (DTTL) member firms and their affiliates, enables us to respond to the complex and diverse needs of our clients around the world.
