Strategic Partnership for Next-Gen Solutions Built on Microsoft Azure OpenAI Service, Microsoft Fabric, and Microsoft Teams and Moody’s Proprietary Data to Empower Financial Services, Capital Markets and More

Moody’s and Microsoft have made a strategic partnership to co-create next-generation data, analytics, research, collaboration and risk solutions for financial services. The solutions will be built by combining Microsoft’s Azure OpenAI Service, Fabric, and Teams, with Moody’s proprietary data, analytics and research, and are designed to enhance insights into corporate intelligence and risk assessment.

The partners will accelerate progress in generative AI by using Moody’s CoPilot, an internal tool, to combine the company’s proprietary data, analytics and research with large language models (LLMs) and Microsoft’s generative AI technology to drive firm-wide innovation and enhance employee productivity. A new copilot tool for customers, Moody’s Research Assistant, will unlock Moody’s resources and solutions to provide customers with a multifaceted view of risk.

Rob Fauber, president and CEO at Moody’s Corporation, says: “Generative AI represents a once-in-a-generation opportunity to enhance how companies navigate risk. By combining Microsoft’s AI capabilities with our proprietary data, research and analytics, Moody’s next generation of risk analysis will help customers make better decisions by unlocking deeper and more integrated perspectives on risk.”

Microsoft and Moody’s will also collaborate to deliver data to shared customers through Microsoft Fabric, an analytics platform for end-to-end data management. New products and services for research and assessment are being built on Azure OpenAI services, Microsoft is using Moody’s solutions, including its Orbis entity database, for applications that include third-party reference data, counterparty risk assessment, and supply chain management, and Moody’s is adopting Microsoft Teams for its workers and customers. The company has also committed to using Microsoft’s Azure cloud platform to power its growing suite of generative AI capabilities and cloud-based applications.

Bill Borden, corporate vice president of worldwide financial services at Microsoft, concludes: “Our partnership will bring together world-class insights from Moody’s with the capabilities, trust and breadth of Microsoft Cloud to enable next-gen solutions that will unlock powerful business intelligence and transform productivity and collaboration.”
