Before software vendors are allowed to bring products to market, they must meet internal compliance and legal requirements. Thanks to our NLP expertise, our customer was able to establish an automated and efficient reconciliation of their documents to compliance and auditing requirements.
Project requirements and tasks
Whether it's new requirements in terms of data protection, encryption or server setup - a manufacturer in the software sector must ensure that current legal and internal requirements are integrated into its workflows. Only if he successfully passes external audit procedures can he bring his products to market. The challenge: Large quantities of text must be compared with each other and the degree of coverage between the formulated requirements and measures must be checked - and this must be done continuously.
This is our contribution
With our tool from Natural Language Processing (NLP), the customer can automatically compare the compliance and legal texts with the formulations in internal process descriptions. This is valuable preparatory work for the compliance department, as the customer can find out automatically whether the desired matches exist at word level. Semantic analysis using embeddings and neural networks is also possible, whereby precision can be further increased if ontologies are used.
A further benefit: If specifications change, the customer remains capable of acting. Because with our NLP solution, he knows at all times whether his own guidelines meet the requirements. This saves time and resources. The business case is relevant across all industries for all fields of application in which the content of texts must be coordinated.
