Bengaluru: Global software major Infosys Ltd will offer its flagship Finacle product to service US banks’ Verizon cloud platforms.

“We will offer solutions to US banks and financial institutions through the software-as-a-service (SaaS) model, which is serving 547 million customers worldwide,” the city-based bellwether said in a statement on Friday.

The US-based Verizon Communications operates the country’s wireless network with 109 million retail connections nationwide. Its enterprise solutions arm helps clients to improve performance and manage risk using multiple platforms over its secure mobility, cloud computing, and networking.

“Our financial services provide a single real-time view of customers, members, products and transactions. We help banks and credit unions to enhance operational efficiency, speed to market for new offerings and reduce time and cost of compliance,” Infosys vice-president Michal Reh said on the occasion.

Finacle’s SaaS offering will empower financial institutions to deliver a multi-channel experience to customers, without much capital infusion and greater flexibility.

“As providing real-time and compelling customer experience across multiple channels is a difficult task even for financial institutions (FIs), Finacle solutions on Verizon cloud will be able to provide banking services to their customers without major investment,” Reh said.

Flexibility of the service helps financial institutions comply with evolving federal and state statutory requirements.

“FIs will benefit from Finacle’s solution coverage and high-performance platform hosted on our cloud to help improve agility, achieve sustainable, profitable growth and drive their business,” Verizon vice-president Adam Famularo said on the occasion.

Are we just focused on post-heart attack action? Or should we be focused more on prevention?

Many young and middle-aged people today are dying of sudden heart attacks. Studies show that cardiovascular diseases (CVD) strike Indians a decade earlier compared to their Western counterparts. Why is this happening? How can we prevent it? Are we just focused on post-heart attack action? Or should we be focused more on prevention?

Luke Coutinho, Holistic Lifestyle Coach -- Integrative and Lifestyle Medicine shares an input that could prevent heart attacks at a young age:

Cholesterol is not the culprit, inflammation is: Many people believe that high levels of cholesterol and triglycerides are the sole culprits behind their heart attacks. The main reasons behind most heart attacks are inflammation and oxidative damage in the heart, blood vessels, endothelial lining, arteries, and more. While maintaining healthy cholesterol levels is important, we cannot blame heart attacks on cholesterol levels alone. What then can you do to keep inflammation in check and your heart strong? Adopt simple lifestyle changes.

When it comes to burgers, its not just the patty that makes it all worthwhile... one can't forget the cheese or the crunchy lettuce either.

When it comes to burgers, its not just the patty that makes it all worthwhile... one can't forget the cheese or the crunchy lettuce either. In India, McDonald's ensures their burgers use the freshest produce, which means that don't use any ordinary lettuce. The iceberg variety was first introduced in India by McDonald's, as early as the 90s, at a time when not many people were familiar with lettuce and used cabbage instead. Lettuce is a key ingredient known for its crunch, its odourless and is ideal for salads, sandwiches and burgers.

The fast food giant collaborated with local Indian suppliers and pioneered the local production of iceberg lettuce in the country. Their lettuce undergoes 30 quality and food safety checks. After harvesting, the lettuce is pre-cooled to a temperate of below 40C at the farm gate to maintain its freshness. It is then transported in refrigerated vehicles to the world-class processing plant where it is shredded to a measured length and width and then washed and cleaned thoroughly before being vacuum-packed.
