In the area of risk management, TCS has leveraged its strong contextual knowledge of customers’ business landscape and deep domain expertise to develop innovative digital and data science powered solutions. TCS’ domain experts work towards enhancing customers’ risk management capabilities using three transformational pillars that leverage digital technologies to strengthen regulatory supervisory obligations and optimize the cost of compliance:

  • Augmented risk intelligence and insights portfolio using news analytics to strengthen counterparty credit risk management, deep learning based signals for credit asset quality management, complaints analytics to manage conduct risks and chatbots / intelligent assistants for risk managers.
  • Cognitive analytics for risk management processes such as the use of cognitive automation for loss data aggregation, KYC and other risk / regulatory reporting, cognitive decisions for risk limit management.
