Satyam Wins Pegasystems Partner Innovation Award for Anti-Money Laundering Solution
Oct 30, 2007 (12:10 PM EDT)


HYDERABAD, India, Oct. 30 /PRNewswire/ -- Satyam Computer Services Ltd. , a leading global consulting and IT services provider, announced today that it won the 2007 Pegasystems Partner Innovation Award in financial services. The announcement was made at PegaWORLD 2007, Pegasystems' annual conference, and one of the business process management (BPM) industry's flagship events.

Satyam won the esteemed award for its advanced Anti-Money Laundering (AML) solution, which enables financial institutions to intelligently track, manage and quickly resolve potentially fraudulent and criminal activity with greater speed and accuracy and to comply with stricter AML regulations. Satyam used Pegasystems' SmartBPM(R) Suite to create the new solution, which addresses a critical and underserved need in the market.

"Financial institutions now have an innovative way to fight fraud and financial crime, as well as stay in compliance with BSA/AML/KYCC statutes," said Anil Kumar, the Global Head of Satyam's Financial Services Business.

Integration among Satyam experts accelerated the solution's development and deployment.

"Satyam's business process management and banking experts leveraged Pegasystems' SmartBPM platform to rapidly deliver an advanced solution without additional and costly software development," said Joseph Lagioia, head of Satyam's Consulting and Enterprise Solutions Practice. "We are very proud and pleased to win this prestigious honor."

Satyam's AML solution optimizes a financial institution's existing transaction-monitoring systems-detecting suspicious activity such as the deposit of very large sums, multiple accounts for the same person, and suspicious names-while at the same time minimizing the number of false positives, which has been a nagging problem in the past. The solution also allows financial institutions to recognize suspicious transactions quickly, rather than waiting until the end of the day, which is the norm for institutions using case management systems.

"Satyam combines superior subject matter expertise in financial services with deep understanding of Pegasystems technology to deliver truly innovative business solutions in an accelerated fashion," said Douglas Kim, managing director of Global Alliances and Business Development for Pegasystems. "We're proud of our long-standing relationship with Satyam and are delighted to recognize them with this award."
