Noida, India, November 22, 2018: HCL Technologies (HCL), a leading global technology company, has been identified as a Leader and Star Performer in the Global Banking Application Services PEAK Matrix™ Assessment 2018 by Everest Group. HCL has been named a Leader for the fourth consecutive year in the Banking Application Services PEAK Matrix assessment and a “Star Performer” for the second time after 2015.

The company has been assessed high for both ‘vision and capabilities’ as well as ‘market impact’ for its double digit growth in Banking Application Services, strong presence in growing markets like Asia Pacific, ability to support clients through investments in co-innovation labs, investment in talent and solution accelerators. HCL’s go-to-market powered by its FENIX framework, an approach that is Forward‐thinking, Engineering‐driven, Nextgen‐focused, Innovative, and E‐Xperience‐centric along with its flexibility in operating and commercial models were highlighted as its key strengths by Everest Group.

Simultaneously, we are bringing a renewed focus to regulatory compliance and rationalizing and converging IT and operations across business divisions.”

“Evolving consumer demands, competition from digital native firms, and a digital talent gap puts stress on banks to execute digital initiatives at speed and scale. To manage these roadblocks, banks need partners that can run business in a cost optimized model, guide banks on their transformation journeys, manage the complexity of the innovation ecosystem, and bring differentiated skills,” said Jimit Arora, Partner at Everest Group. “Significant scale up in existing accounts, multiple new client wins, and clients recognizing the value delivered in engagements helped HCL demonstrate superior market success. HCL strengthened its value proposition through investments in innovation labs, partnerships, talent, and solutions to position itself as a Star Performer and a Leader on the 2018 Everest Group Banking Application Services PEAK MatrixTM.”
