Global IT services, consulting and business solutions company, Tata Consultancy Services (TCS), has further deepened its long-standing relationship with Amazon Web Services (AWS) with the launch of their new TCS AWS Business Unit. This dedicated group within TCS would bring together the scale, technology expertise, and industry knowledge of AWS and TCS, intended to help drive great business outcomes using AWS.
TCS’ AWS business unit is a full-stack, multidisciplinary group that offers enterprise customers end-to-end services and solutions around cloud migration, application and data modernization, managed services, and industry-specific innovation leveraging AWS.
TCS holds a number of AWS designations, including AWS Premier Consulting Partner, AWS Managed Service Provider Partner, AWS Public Sector Partner, AWS Solution Provider, and AWS Well Architected Partner. The launch of this new business unit would represent a significant further investment by TCS. It builds on the deep expertise and execution experience of its large pool of AWS certified professionals to create more value for shared customers.
“TCS is an AWS Premier Consulting Partner with proven industry expertise and has a differentiated portfolio of offerings built on AWS that help customers transform into agile, resilient, and digital businesses,” said Matt Garman, Vice President, Sales and Marketing, Amazon Web Services. “The TCS AWS Business Unit will help our shared customers leverage the power of AWS to rapidly innovate and reimagine their businesses.”
Software Engineering and Transformation Tools
Specialized teams within the AWS business unit will help customers accelerate and automate the different stages of their cloud journey using TCS’ extensive library of frameworks, accelerators and toolsets such as TCS’ DATOM consulting framework for data estate modernization, Cloud Counsel, and iCMC decision support engine for sequencing applications for modernization and migration.
To speed up and streamline application modernization, including mainframe-based systems, TCS uses its proven MasterCraft suite of software engineering and transformation tools as well as their TCS Modernization Propeller with its extensive library of pre-defined industry-specific microservices and API templates.
The new AWS business unit will leverage TCS’ deep domain knowledge across industry verticals, contextual knowledge and design studios to redesign front-end interactions and associated processes to reimagine customer experiences and journeys. By ideating and co-innovating at TCS’ Pace Ports to prototype and build innovative industry-centric solutions, the new business unit will leverage the native capabilities of Amazon Machine Learning (Amazon ML) services. This way it can implement machine vision, conversational assistants, and predictive analytics to enable superior customer engagement, accelerate the launch of newer products and services, and enhance business agility and competitive differentiation.
Furthermore, TCS’ rich portfolio of industry-centric products and platforms like their TCS BaNCS suite in financial services, TCS Optumera and TCS Omnistore in Retail, TCS HOBS in telecom and TCS ADD in life sciences are now available on AWS.
“TCS and AWS have been helping customers across the world realize their vision of building resilient, adaptable, and purpose-driven businesses that deliver business growth and sustained stakeholder value creation,” said Krishnan Ramanujam, Business Group Head, Business and Technology Services, TCS. “With this latest initiative, we are bringing together all our different capabilities and transformational solutions under one dedicated business unit to help our customers with their innovation and business transformation needs using AWS.”
