“SECReTS” is an expert system used by several Italian banks to support the analysis of client specific data. SECReTS performs a monitoring task, observing a well-defined data flow that takes place on a monthly basis between each bank and the Bank of Italy. As is typical in monitoring expert systems, SECReTS' main task is that of identifying the occurrence of meaningful situations, and in such cases to produce a detailed report to a user. SECReTS is implemented in Prolog, and is built around a meta-interpreter. To interact with the user, SECReTS employs a HyperText-like graphic user interface. A brand new SECReTS architecture is currently under implementation, that incorporates the original architecture in a Computer Supported Cooperative Workgroup framework.
