TCS To Remove Digital Classification From Its Business
From the next fiscal year, Tata Consultancy Services will be removing the digital classification from its business. The reason behind this is that their digital services portfolios have been a huge part of the deals that have won recently.
As per the Digital services TCS chief executive Rajesh Gopinathan and COO NG Subramaniam, artificial intelligence, analytics, blockchain and other digital services are now a part of the digital transformation projects, and it is difficult to be distinguished from the purely digital services and those that are not.
Gopinathan said that the line between digital and core is thinning. He said, “This is no longer about one technology or aspect, but taking an integrated view and designing a solution that is the best fit for the context. Part of it may be surgery, using new technology, or repurposing existing technology applications.”
Starting next year, TCS might go back to the traditional segregation of the services. This will simplify the task of stakeholders who track the performance of TCS.
