MUMBAI, October 14, 2021: Tata Consultancy Services (TCS), (BSE: 532540, NSE: TCS), a leading global IT services, consulting and business solutions organization, announced the launch of the enhanced TCS BaNCS™ Marketplace, an innovation hub for customers to collaborate and adopt cutting-edge partner solutions compatible with the TCS BaNCS suite, spanning banking, capital markets, and insurance domains.

Financial institutions are increasingly partnering with TCS to accelerate their innovation and to leverage a larger co-innovation ecosystem curated by TCS. The TCS BaNCS Marketplace offers them a rich ecosystem of solutions and APIs from fintechs, insurtechs, risktechs, regtechs and other innovators.

Customers can collaborate and experiment with these partners in a secure and trusted sandbox environment, to co-innovate and rapidly prototype solutions that enhance end-customer experience, and enable new value-added services and revenue streams. They can also select pre-packaged and curated solutions to accelerate their responses to evolving market needs.

For partners the Marketplace offers access to TCS BaNCS’ large installed base across the world and an opportunity to expand into newer markets. More than 100 partners are already part of the TCS BaNCS Marketplace. Of these, 50% are in different stages of monetization and 25% of the partner solutions have already been deployed at customer organizations.

To be hosted on the Marketplace, partners go through a process of curation to determine their strategic relevance to customers and complementarity with the TCS BaNCS product roadmap.
