Banking businesses constitute approximately 70 percent of our revenues, and we will now be better positioned to evolve with our customers’ needs in the future and launch new products and services. The centralization of our operations on TCS BaNCS is helping us enhance customer and employee experience and leverage data for insightful analytics and intelligent decision-making.”
