In a bid to address the rapidly-evolving digital transformation requirements in global markets including in India, Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) on Monday announced a new collaboration with Intel Corporation to build a "future-ready reference architecture" for enterprises.
The collaboration will help firms adopt new-age technologies like Internet of Things (IoT), Cloud, network, 5G, artificial intelligence and data centre infrastructure management.
"The collaboration with TCS marks a milestone for our continued efforts to enable customers and the industry with services and technologies for digital transformation," said Shannon Poulin, Vice President, Intel Sales and Marketing Group, in a statement.
TCS and Intel are already investing in Centres of Excellence (CoEs) in India and the US which will be hubs for next-generation data centre technologies, IoT and cloud-ready network architectures to support customers.
The COEs will address industry-specific challenges in IoT to optimise costs, improve productivity and increase customers' revenue.
In addition, TCS and Intel will design cloud-ready network architectures to help businesses build agile and cost-effective infrastructure through software-defined networking and software-defined infrastructure.
"The Centres of Excellence will also provide on-the-ground solution testing, verification and development support for customers in the US and India," Poulin added.
Coupled with TCS's full services digital expertise, the collaboration will deliver business value by advancing customers' data centres and end-to-end IoT solutions such as edge devices, operating systems, storage, analytics, end-point devices and networking infrastructure investments.
"TCS is committed to delivering innovative solutions that provide customers an edge over competition and steer their businesses toward a more efficient digital future," said Raman Venkatraman, Global Head of Alliances and Technology Unit, TCS.
"The collaboration with Intel will enable us to create market-ready solutions for digital transformations, while reducing time and cost," he added.
