The US Microsoft Partner of the Year Awards, announced in conjunction with Microsoft’s Inspire conference, recognizes leading Microsoft partners that solve a business challenge or create new business opportunities, and develop and deliver exceptional Microsoft-based technology solutions. Over the last two decades, Neudesic has been helping companies across many industries like healthcare, financial services & insurance, retail, manufacturing, professional services, energy & utilities and more – leverage Microsoft’s products, to re-imagine their operations, services, and products through modern solutions such as Custom Applications, Enterprise Data Platforms, Artificial Intelligence & Machine Learning, and DevOps & Automation. This experience, along with investments in reusable IP and frameworks, has really helped clients accelerate their digital transformation initiatives. Due to the global pandemic, like several industries, companies in the FSI vertical had to quickly transform their business and Neudesic’s cloud, data and AI frameworks ensured compliance with industry best practices and enablement of IT and business teams as they adopted cloud technologies.

Neudesic’s 5 most recent financial services industry projects and client successes include:

  1. At a regional bank with over $25 Billion in assets, Neudesic accelerated the set up and migration to their cloud and data estates with a heavy focus on security, governance and automation for FSI regulations and compliance requirements. We also, supported the deployment of their Synapse powered cloud data platform and their migration and app rationalization to M365.
  2. For a large investment management solutions company, Neudesic developed a supported migration and modernization of applications based on the Microsoft Cloud Adoption Framework and Well-Architected Framework. Neudesic architects solved industry-specific problems with application owners and drove millions in savings while improving customer experience.
  3. At a large global investment and advisory financial services firm, Neudesic partnered with their team to assess and transform their current cloud and data estate focusing on volume, velocity & variety of their data, reference architectures and performance & risk related issues that are pushing them towards becoming a Cloud Smart organization. During the engagement, Neudesic developed Azure cloud-based solution for the following use cases: Quantitative Risk Formulas, Liquidity Calculations and XML Parsing of Large Files
  4. A leading asset manager deployed Neudesic’s Document Intelligence Platform to automate extremely manual and complex document processing use cases. Manually extracting key information from 10,000 documents a day and entering that information into appropriate business systems is tedious and involves large amounts of manual processing. The cost and time of this process is high to the point of being prohibitive. At the same time, all the value-add services the firm offers depend on this information being complete. What’s more, the documents contain very sensitive, confidential information that must comply with stringent security requirements. Neudesic was able to help the client overcome these challenges by enabling business users to build, train, and run document classification and entity extraction models with ease. By fully automating document processing the client was able to focus on customer experience and reduce the amount of time, effort and money spent in document processing workflows.
  5. At a large insurance company, Neudesic transformed over 50 internal and customer facing processes by modernizing over 300 applications, introducing AI and RPA to reduce manual efforts and errors, and supporting remote productivity and collaboration. All this was done by quickly deploying Microsoft Teams and M365 shift to remote work during the global pandemic.
