Microsoft wins two Asian Private Banker Technology Awards

Microsoft has won two prestigious Asian Private Banker Technology Awards – Best Integrated Front Office Solutions and Best Provider of Data Analytics – highlighting the company’s performance and innovation in Asia’s private banking industry.

Microsoft won the award for ‘Best Integrated Front Office Solutions’ in recognition of the key strengths of Microsoft Dynamics CRM. Microsoft Dynamics CRM offers unique, seamless integration with middle/back office applications as well as Microsoft’s products such as Power BI for data analytics, Skype and Yammer for workforce collaboration, and SharePoint for document workflow management. It provides a highly flexible relationship management framework that not only allows private banks to successfully manage multi-asset portfolios but also enables cost efficient integrated solutions.

The advanced analytics suites and high-performance cloud computing capabilities of the Microsoft data platform, comprising Microsoft SQL server 2014 and Azure SQL Database, the Microsoft Azure IoT Suite, Cortana Analytics Suite and Azure Data Lake, Power BI and Azure Machine Learning, also saw Microsoft named as the ‘Best Provider of Data Analytics’.

“We were delighted to hear that Microsoft has been awarded two Asian Private Banker Technology Awards,” said Connie Leung, Asia Financial Services Lead at Microsoft. “Winning these awards is a great way to follow a tremendously successful Sibos 2015 in Singapore, and a valued recognition of the commitment and capabilities we deliver in the financial services sector. These awards highlight two key areas of focus for Microsoft and our partners in enabling banks to transform into the customer-centric, innovative and insightful organisations that today’s customers expect.

“Dynamics CRM has won recognition and awards from leading analysts, and this award is a fantastic endorsement of the role it is playing in enabling banks to put the customer at the centre of their business.

“Microsoft data platform has set a new standard for mission-critical performance which enables financial institutions to manage their risk exposures and transform data into intelligent action as well as gain customer insights to increase customers’ wallet share and stay ahead of the competition. We’re delighted that their combination of powerful data provision, aggregation, storage, analytics, machine learning and visualisation capabilities has earned us the ‘Best Provider of Data Analytics’ award.”

Microsoft was the only provider to win in two categories of the awards, which were presented at the Technology Awards luncheon and champagne reception on 17 November in Singapore.
