In order to help clients use artificial intelligence (AI) more successfully, TCS CEO Krithivasan emphasized the company’s focus on investigating cutting-edge applications of generative artificial intelligence (Gen AI).

TCS wants to assist clients in utilizing AI to enhance implicit knowledge, boost productivity via cooperative intelligence, and develop into a knowledge-driven superstructure. Krithivasan highlighted TCS’s large talent pool with training in Gen AI, AI/ML, and partnerships, presenting the business as a collaborator with clients on their technology adoption journeys.

Although adoption of Gen AI is still in its early phases, many clients have started experimenting with its numerous use cases, anticipating it to revolutionize every industry. Customers reprioritized projects in the business environment in FY24, favoring those that were considered business-critical, with an emphasis on cost efficiency and cloud transition.

Vendor consolidation, cloud migration, and efforts to improve employee and customer experiences were the main drivers of demand. Customers see cloud adoption as a growth and transformation strategy for their businesses, with hybrid and multi-cloud systems becoming commonplace and acting as innovation accelerators.
