In HCL, Microsoft has a comprehensive co-innovation technology partner that can help realize the product's true and vision of the Microsoft Cloud for Financial Services.

HCL Technologies offers its services and products through three business units - IT and Business Services (ITBS), Engineering and R&D Services (ERS) and Products & Platforms (P&P).
