IDC MarketScape Names TCS as a Global Leader in Enterprise Mobility Services

Report Cites Leading Investments in R&D and High Praise From Customers in Thought Leadership, Resource Scalability and Ability to Drive Continuous Improvement

SANTA CLARA, Calif. and MUMBAI, India, March 31, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Tata Consultancy Services (TCS), (BSE: 532540, NSE: TCS), a leading IT services, consulting and business solutions organization, today announced that it has been designated as a Leader in Enterprise Mobility Services by International Data Corporation (IDC), a leading independent research company. In the "IDC MarketScape: Worldwide Mobile Application Development, Testing, Management and Infrastructure Services 2014 Vendor Assessment" report, TCS' highest scores were received in customer satisfaction, innovation R&D/pace and productivity, and employee management.

The IDC report evaluated the strengths and weaknesses of 14 enterprise mobility service providers on 117 criteria, including range of service offerings, delivery model, scalability, customer service, and growth strategy. This report highlighted customers' high praise for TCS with regard to resource scalability, HTML5 skills, thought leadership, and the ability to drive continuous improvement. It also cited TCS' high flexibility to work with differing client workstyles across application lifecycle management, which makes it easier for clients to develop key partnership bonds with TCS.

"IDC has observed an increasing amount of activity in mobile application services. Enterprises are investing heavily in building mobile applications as part of their overall mission-critical business objectives. But, the rapidly evolving mobile technology landscape, shortage of skilled mobile application resources, and mobile infrastructure costs are impeding enterprises from accomplishing their mobility goals. As a result, enterprises are increasingly looking to service providers, not only for mobility expertise and guidance, but also to build, test and manage mobile applications moving forward," explains Pete Marston of IDC.

"In TCS, we are on a mission to help our customers reimagine their businesses by leveraging mobility to create fundamentally new business models, reach new customer segments, create new channels, and dramatically improve business processes and workplaces," said Dr. Satya Ramaswamy, Global Head of TCS Digital Enterprise. "We are a very customer-centric organization, focused on the success of our customers, so we are pleased to receive high praise from our customers in the IDC MarketScape report for our thought leadership and execution capabilities in enterprise mobility services."

IoT is at the core or many Digital Transformation initiatives with the goal of re-inventing a company's business model. We all agree that collecting relevant IoT data will result in massive amounts of data needing to be stored. However, with the rapid development of IoT devices and ongoing business model transformation, we are not able to predict the volume and growth of IoT data. And with the lack of IoT history, traditional methods of IT and infrastructure planning based on the past do not app...
Organizations planning enterprise data center consolidation and modernization projects are faced with a challenging, costly reality. Requirements to deploy modern, cloud-native applications simultaneously with traditional client/server applications are almost impossible to achieve with hardware-centric enterprise infrastructure. Compute and network infrastructure are fast moving down a software-defined path, but storage has been a laggard. Until now.
Digital Transformation is much more than a buzzword. The radical shift to digital mechanisms for almost every process is evident across all industries and verticals. This is often especially true in financial services, where the legacy environment is many times unable to keep up with the rapidly shifting demands of the consumer. The constant pressure to provide complete, omnichannel delivery of customer-facing solutions to meet both regulatory and customer demands is putting enormous pressure on...
