“CFOs today provide financial leadership to drive business strategy and create a risk intelligent culture in addition to their traditional mandate of cost control, cashflow, financial reporting and operational resilience.

TCS’ strong consulting and technology capabilities, proprietary solutions, deep domain expertise, contextual knowledge, world-class frameworks, and its global delivery footprint to create digitally-enabled, agile, future-ready and intelligent finance operations. TCS offers a comprehensive portfolio of finance and accounting services spanning both core processes such as procure-to-pay, order-to-cash, record-to-report and risk, compliance and audit support, as well as strategic processes such as financial planning and analysis, tax regulatory and treasury. It has developed robust industry-specific finance and accounting solutions across banking, financial services and insurance, retail and consumer business, communications, media and technology, manufacturing, life sciences and healthcare and energy, resources, and utilities.

A key differentiator is TCS’ intellectual property that is central to its transformational approach. It leverages Cognix for Finance, an AI-driven human-machine collaboration suite to digitally transform finance operations, helping customers achieve superior outcomes in working capital, cash flow, and controllership. Cognix unlocks the immense value that lies at the intersection of business processes, applications, and the IT infrastructure layer. It innovatively orchestrates the digital technology ecosystem and contextualizes solutions by harnessing knowhow from a vast expanse of customer operations. Cognix helps realize a configurable enterprise enabling organizations to achieve a competitive edge through cognitive operations.

Cognix uses an ecosystem of pre-built, configurable, and reusable digital solutions called value builders to address specific CFO goals. For example, a Cash-flow Command Center provides AI-powered real-time insights into the cashflow position at any given time with a view of the projected cash inflow and an impact assessment in case of an event. Similarly, GL Integrity Analysis empowers controllers with AI-powered intelligent insights and recommendations on detected anomalies.

Cognix also provides a comprehensive benchmarking and maturity assessment framework which enables C-suite executives to measure the cognitive maturity of their operations vis-a-vis industry benchmarks and provides recommendations to reach the desired future-ready state.
