DataTracks plans the next version of Rainbow software to feature artificial intelligence and machine learning.

DataTracks, a global leader in providing cloud-based software applications for preparing compliance reports, announces plans for the next version of its Rainbow software featuring artificial intelligence and machine learning capabilities.

DataTracks Rainbow – Global Leaders in Providing Cloud-Based XBRL Software:

Singapore-based DataTracks is a global leader in providing software and services to help business enterprises prepare and file compliance reports with regulators (such as SEC in the United States).  DataTracks counts more than 16,600 clients in 24 countries.

Rainbow 3.0, the current version of the software, links to financial books, draws financial and other data into a depository, facilitates the writing of compliance reports in a collaborative manner using the data in the depository, facilitates defining data by associating each piece of data with a defined concept in a public or private taxonomy, and facilitates extraction of output in iXBRL, XBRL, HTML and PDF formats for filing with regulators and for printing/publishing to stakeholders.  Since its inception, clients have used the Rainbow software to produce more than 16,000 compliance reports.

Rainbow 4.0, the next version slated for release in 18 months, would incorporate AI and machine learning features to supplement human judgment in associating the most “fit for purpose” definition of financial data.


Founder/Director T R Santhanakrishnan said: “Independent league tables for quality in the United States places DataTracks within the top three positions with a score of 99.44%; a score far better than several competitors in the space.  High quality makes it easy for analysts to acquire insight into your financials and help reduce noise and increase signal in the capital market.   AI and ML is the only way to increase quality beyond the current high score.  The emphasis here is to supplement (and not supplant) human judgment.  We are excited about investing in the next version of Rainbow, especially for our customers in US and European Union regulatory regimes”.

He added: “It gives me joy to keep Singapore at the leading edge of this aspect of financial technology, providing quick acquisition of insight from financial information by investors and analysts worldwide”.


Pramodh Vittal, a member of the Executive Board responsible for R&D, said: “It was an extraordinary journey, marked by very intense efforts, in getting our quality score to reach current levels.  The baby steps were easy:  Better recruitment, training, and process control.  Improving the quality score beyond 90% required analytics to identify patterns and mitigate the impact of likely causes.  Improving any further from 99% requires quick and comprehensive comparison with peer decisions and past decisions.  That can only be done by deploying AI and ML”.
