With a domain-led portfolio of Applications, Business Process Outsourcing (BPO), Infrastructure services and Consulting solutions, Mphasis has been helping leading names in the industry that include large and mid-size commercial and universal banks and insurance organizations such as the Royal Bank of Scotland, attain new heights. And today, its global footprint includes both mature markets such as Americas, Europe and Australia which cater to BPO, Apps and ITO services.

In fact, talking about how clients benefit from the company’s services, Trish Arksey, Head of Transaction Services Technology at The Royal Bank of Scotland plc said, “The constant emergence of new technologies, greater customer expectations, and strong competition mean we constantly need to fine tune the way we do business. We were looking for a service provider with deep roots in the banking industry to help us manage and transform our applications portfolio and in turn help us serve our customers better. Mphasis was our ideal choice, to build a strong technology foundation for our future growth and we are delighted to partner with Mphasis.”

Establishing a brand value for itself in the market

Today, the company is focused on transforming itself to become a global company with more focus on the industry verticals it serves and has put to effect four strategic acquisitions – AIGSS (AIG’s IT captive in India), Fortify (a company focused on Infrastructure services and platforms), Wyde Corporation (an IP lead software vendor serving the Global Insurance Industry), and most recently Digital Risk (the largest independent provider of Risk, Compliance and Transaction Management solutions for US residential mortgages), based in the US. A move viewed in the market as innovative and with foresight, the company’s focus on business outcomes rather than mere services is sure to win it more accolades in the near future.

In conversation with the CEO

Q. How has your brand delivered value to customers, enterprise or otherwise?
Our tag line is “Unleash the Next”. It symbolizes change within Mphasis and the value that we want to bring to our clients. We are continuously redefining the space of IT services and Business Process together. Bringing value in the space of Digital, GRC (Governance, Risk and Compliance), we challenge ourselves to innovatively blend Next Gen Infrastructure, Application and Business Process services contributing to our customer’s success. As a smaller player in the industry, we have relied on the beauty of smallness, we will never want to have the “big mindset” and treat our customers as a digit. Flexibility, intensity and customer success will always remain core to our existence.

Q. Who can benefit from your Offerings? Tell us something about your key inventions?
Established as a future-ready R&D hub, our research and innovation lab Nextlabs collaborates with technology partners, academia, start-ups, and stakeholders across the world towards crafting solutions to the needs of our clients.

HyperGraf, the first cloud-based solution from Mphasis’ Nextlabs, is an Omni-channel Digital 360° solution that is comprehensive, feature-rich business intelligence and analytics solution. A Big Data correlation engine that generates actionable insights by bridging the gap between enterprise data and external and third party data such as social media, credit scores, open data and other multi-media datasets, its custom features and algorithms can be built on top of this based on unique scenarios.

InfraGraf, another solution from the Nextlabs stable, is an intelligent infrastructure automation platform that optimizes enterprise technology infrastructure investments. A Big Data complex event processing engine, it enables enterprises to innovate and make strategic decisions regarding their technology infrastructure through actionable insights by correlation and causation analysis structured and unstructured data.

NextAngles, a corporate backed startup (cart-up) by Mphasis is a US based early stage venture which has created a platform to address the compliance needs of a financial institution. NextAngles is leading the way to Smart Compliance—a new breed of disruptive solutions for regulatory risk and compliance.

The solution we are building incorporates cognitive models and smart data that empower intelligent system behaviors. Our smart compliance approach reduces the risk, burden, cost, and stress of compliance substantially, harnesses data streams to automate fulfillment of multiple regulatory requirements, and scales to meet enterprise-class business and regulatory challenges.

NextAngles will reduce compliance stress, burden & cost by 30-70%

  • NextAngles empowers all constituencies of a compliance ecosystem: compliance officers, regulators, auditors and business teams to transform how compliance is done today.
  • Improves the consistency, timeliness, and completeness of compliance results.
  • With the increasing complexity of the regulatory landscape, operational and cost pressures bear down on compliance management and hiring more experts does not translate into a sustainable solution.
  • NextAngles offers smart compliance capabilities that will address the most demanding financial regulatory needs by mitigating risk, empowering all individuals involved and transforming the experience of compliance.

NextAngles – A solution for Knowledge Workers

  • An Artificial Intelligence based system that knows, learns, automates and communicates new regulations and changes in regulations that can be encoded rapidly.
  • NextAngles automates the lower end of Knowledge Work, thereby making the professionals far more productive.
  • The system helps create an audit trail. The system knows which regulation is applicable to which Line of Business and finds violations, if any.

We were changing as a company. We began to fully exemplify our new company tagline: “Unleash the Next.” Our goal is to build a culture of experimentation, with customers co-creating products and services, all accomplished within a radical compression of the cycle time. Meanwhile, we are dismantling well-entrenched structural and communication models, upending deep-rooted hierarchical mindsets, and revisiting learning models. Top management’s role is changing, too, to reflect the new culture. This is no longer the “physical” transformations of yore, but a “chemical” one that affects the very DNA of a company.

“In the age of digital disruption, duality is one of the toughest things to practice in any organization, it requires a very different leadership rhythm. Leaders will need to embark on a journey of self-transformation to change the way they think, the way they do business. Leaders globally trained in the analog world now have to steer not that large ship, but unleash hundreds of innovative canoes in digital waters. There is not a choice anymore – companies need to reinvent themselves and we as business and technology executives are responsible for navigating our enterprise in the digital revolution.”
