Tata Consultancy's Strategic Pivot Has Cloud Implications

Mitch Wagner

Tata Consultancy Services, which has decades of experience supplying systems integration services to the world's largest telcos, is resetting its strategy, and the change has significant implications for enterprise cloud.

As described by my colleague Ray Le Maistre at Light Reading, Tata Consultancy Services Ltd. 's goal is to straddle the line between its traditional professional services business and a new role delivering its own technology products. (See TCS Pivots to Products, Plans M&A.)

TCS is already a significant player in the tech sector, regarded as one of the top four IT services brands in the world, alongside Accenture, Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) and IBM, delivering services to companies around the world in many industries, with annual revenues of more than $17 billion and 380,000 staff. The company's Communications, Media and Information (CMI) division generates about $1.9 billion in revenues from its R&D, testing and network/service lifecycle management services, which are used by major network operators such as AT&T and BT, as well as web-scale cloud giants like Facebook and Google and equipment vendors.

So what's new, and how does it affect enterprise cloud? TCS is looking to help meet the demands of digital transformation for both service providers and enterprises, delivering SDN, NFV, orchestration and more. TCS will deliver four themes:

Technology transition. This includes implementing cloud-based technologies such as OpenStack, "cross-cloud" network discovery and analytics, and transitioning staff to new skills.

Supporting multivendor environments.

Developing and delivering AI products. TCS already has an AI engine called Igneo to help with workload optimization and managing computer resources at large enterprises, and TCS is looking to do more.

Offering software-defined intelligent infrastructure for enterprises. This service would be based on OpenStack integration and support, SD-and WAN implementation, with 5G services to come.

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
