Tata Consultancy Services (TCS), India’s largest IT services company, has achieved a significant milestone by training 3.5 lakh employees in generative AI (GenAI) skills. This move positions TCS as a frontrunner in the rapidly evolving field of AI and showcases its commitment to equipping its workforce with the latest technological competencies.

TCS Creates World's One Of The Largest AI Workforce With 3.5 Lakh Strength

In January, TCS had initially announced the training of 1.5 lakh employees in GenAI skills, recognizing the immense potential and opportunities that lie ahead for IT services companies. Since then, the company has expanded its training efforts, successfully upskilling over half of its employee base. With a workforce well-versed in GenAI, TCS is poised to leverage this expertise to drive innovation and deliver cutting-edge solutions to its clients.

AWS Recognizes TCS as Generative AI Competency Partner

TCS’ dedication to advancing its GenAI capabilities has not gone unnoticed. Amazon Web Services (AWS) has recognized TCS as a Generative AI competency partner, acknowledging the company’s industry-leading investments and deep collaboration with AWS. This recognition solidifies TCS’ position as a trusted partner for enterprises seeking to harness the power of GenAI in their digital transformation journeys.

Krishna Mohan, Vice President and Deputy Head of AI.Cloud Unit at TCS, expressed his pride in achieving the AWS generative competency as a launch partner. He attributed this success to TCS’ forward-looking investments and strong partnership with AWS, which have enabled the company to stay at the forefront of AI innovation.

Comprehensive Portfolio of GenAI Services and Solutions

In 2023, TCS took a proactive step by establishing a dedicated business unit for AI and cloud, becoming the first technology company to do so. This move demonstrates TCS’ commitment to addressing the growing needs of customers in the rapidly evolving AI and cloud landscape.

TCS offers a comprehensive portfolio of GenAI services and solutions, catering to the diverse requirements of its clients. These offerings include consulting and advisory services, solution design and prototyping, large language model training and fine-tuning, guardrail agent design, project delivery, and ongoing maintenance. Additionally, TCS has developed a responsible AI framework to guide enterprises in navigating the ethical and safe uses of AI technology.

The company has already demonstrated the practical applications of GenAI in various domains. For instance, TCS has employed GenAI to enhance customer experience for airlines by enabling natural conversations with customers during flight delays or cancellations and providing alternative routing options. The company has also utilized GenAI capabilities to streamline and simplify the contract review process, including the identification and validation of clauses.

TCS Sets the Stage for AI-Driven Future

With its extensive training initiatives and strategic investments in GenAI, TCS is well-positioned to lead the way in the AI-driven future. The company’s commitment to upskilling its workforce and developing innovative solutions showcases its dedication to helping enterprises harness the full potential of AI technology.

As the demand for AI and cloud solutions continues to grow, TCS’ expertise and comprehensive portfolio of GenAI services and solutions will undoubtedly play a crucial role in shaping the digital landscape. With a highly skilled workforce and a strong partnership with AWS, TCS is ready to embark on a transformative journey, driving innovation and delivering value to its clients in the era of generative AI.
