Finance on Windows

Editor: Amber Stokes
Publication manager: Amandip Singh

The Spring 2014 issue of Finance on Windows is out now, focusing on Microsoft technology in banking, capital markets and insurance. In this issue we explore how Accenture, Avanade and Microsoft are delivering business analytics solutions to achieve break-through insight into customer behaviour, business performance and profitability, market modelling and an integrated view of enterprise-wide risk exposure.

Elsewhere in this issue, we talk to Microsoft and its partners about how insurance carriers are seeking to optimise sales performance and service levels to improve customer retention and drive organic growth. Plus, we take a look at how financial services customers, including Credit Suisse and Generali China Life Insurance Company, are benefiting from Microsoft and partner technology implementations.
