HCL Technologies (HCL), a global technology company, on Monday, announced it was selected as a launch partner for Microsoft's recently announced industry cloud: Microsoft Cloud for Financial Services.

Microsoft Cloud for Financial Services brings together capabilities with multilayered security and comprehensive compliance coverage to deliver differentiated customer experiences, improve employee collaboration and productivity, manage risk and modernize core systems.

"We partnered with Microsoft in this key initiative because they will enable our HCL Financial Services Ideapreneurs to incorporate their decades of domain expertise into a futuristic hyperscale foundation," said Rahul Singh, president, HCL Financial Services. "What our clients gain is a synergistic co-innovation effect: Microsoft surfacing new capabilities and HCL building differentiating solutions with our clients and partners."

One key solution is HCL's Power Banking product, built to leverage all available capabilities of the Microsoft Cloud for Financial Services. It enables comprehensive scenarios for retail bank customer engagement.

"Our strategic partners like HCL Technologies play a critical role in enabling the Microsoft Cloud for Financial Services and elevating the digital transformation journey for our customers," shared Bill Borden, corporate vice president of worldwide financial services, Microsoft. "Banking customers working with HCL's deep expertise in retail banking can take advantage of a tailored cloud solution built on Microsoft's trusted platform with robust security and compliance to speed time to value while unlocking innovation for sustainable growth."
