New Delhi : Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) (BSE: 532540, NSE: TCS), a leading global IT services, consulting, and business solutions organization, has been positioned as a Leader in the IDC MarketScape for Managed Multicloud Services1.

According to the report, “TCS’ strategy for cloud is anchored to TCS Business 4.0™ (thought leadership framework), which is focused on helping clients transform their businesses to a borderless enterprise.” The report goes on to say that “TCS exceeded industry standards for upgrading legacy infrastructure to private cloud IaaS infrastructure as part of managed multicloud services as well as for supporting legacy custom-coded applications (e.g., COBOL) and any type of Microsoft, SAP, and Oracle applications (e.g., legacy/non-cloud application architectures, applications architected for the cloud including SaaS).”

“TCS helps the world’s largest companies envision and drive their multi-horizon cloud transformation journeys. With our deep contextual knowledge of our customers’ businesses, full scope of cloud capabilities, consulting-led approach, meaningful industry expertise, and an end-to-end suite of solutions, tools and accelerators, we help enterprises accelerate time-to-market and become purpose-driven, resilient and agile,” said Krishnan Ramanujam, Business Group Head, Business & Technology Services, TCS. “This position as a Leader is a reflection of our strategies, capabilities, and the resultant market success.”

Peter Marston, Research Director, IDC, said, “Multicloud management has become increasingly important for enterprises to achieve resilience and flexibility ambitions. However, most organizations lack the depth and breadth of competencies that are required to harness the full value of cloud and optimize multicloud management. In the IDC MarketScape: Worldwide Managed Multicloud Services 2021 Vendor Assessment, we found TCS possessed strengths in upgrading legacy infrastructure to private cloud IaaS infrastructure, supporting legacy custom-coded applications (e.g., COBOL) and any type of Microsoft, SAP, and Oracle applications as part of its managed multi-cloud services. TCS also exceeded industry standards in utilizing Docker technologies for containers, Alibaba for PaaS, and Microsoft for SaaS, as well as innovative capabilities including analytics technologies, IoT, and serverless computing/function as a service on public clouds (spanning IaaS, PaaS, and/or SaaS).”
