HELPING CLIENTS MAKE THE PIVOT TO DIGITAL

Digital technology and thinking are dramatically altering the way people everywhere live and work. This makes it imperative for businesses to radically retool how they operate and create value. Across every industry, companies are making the digital “pivot” to reimagine business models, reinvent products and services, and rewire the experiences they provide to customers, employees, and partners.

Banking

From Lending that Looks at the Financial Picture, to Lending That Looks at the Whole Picture

We’re helping banks revolutionize lending by assessing risk based on more than a customer’s financial history. Using advanced analytics and rich borrower data, banks can better predict a customer’s creditworthiness – leading to lending decisions that lower credit risk and help qualified individuals and businesses get the financing they need.

Insurance

From Claims Management to Loss Prevention

Applying predictive analytics to new sources of data from devices such as wearables and smart products helps insurers shift from managing claims to mitigating future adversities. Today, we’re showing insurers how to unlock the meaning in data to better anticipate, plan for – and even prevent – potential security and financial disruptions.

Healthcare

From Providers, Payers, and Patients, to Partners on the Same Page

We’re helping to transform the healthcare system with integrated platforms that enable providers, payers and consumers to share comprehensive, patient-centric data on all aspects of care. When all parties collaborate seamlessly, with a common purpose and common data, they are more empowered to make better decisions on health and wellness.

Life Sciences

From Blockbuster Prescriptions to Live-Better-Longer Subscriptions

Insights from genomic data, wearables and other data sources now allow life sciences companies to transcend their traditional roles in drug and device development. We’re helping drive breakthroughs in digital health with the capabilities to personalize therapies, treat conditions before they develop, and become partners with patients to facilitate healthier living.

Media & Entertainment

From Content People Love, to Content People Live

The possibilities of media and entertainment are being reimagined with systems and technologies that let users interact with content in more exciting ways, such as augmented or virtual reality. We’re working with industry players to deliver more accessible, interactive, personal, and shareable experiences – whenever and wherever audiences want them.

Manufacturing

From Products that People Take Care of to Products that Care of Themselves

Sensors, automation, and artificial intelligence – plus the ability to connect machines, systems, and users – are creating new generations of smart products. We help manufacturers transition from producing goods to creating ecosystems of connected objects and services – so everything from industrial and consumer devices to entire city infrastructures can operate more safely, productively, and economically.
