Tata Consultancy Services: Hub for global gain

Singapore is one of the major growth markets, contributing significantly to the operations of Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) in the APAC region, which covers a dozen countries

Business operations
More than 1,200 associates work for TCS Singapore, providing various services around IT consultancy, application development and maintenance, business process outsourcing, engineering and industrial services, asset-based solutions and infrastructure services.
 
A regional hub for Fortune 500 multinationals, tech-savvy Singapore provides the best business climate to grow and thrive. While MNCs provide ample business opportunities for TCS, local IT players are ahead in the race to cater to the domestic industry as they have established relationships. TCS is confident of bridging this gap by leveraging its global experience across various industries and services, and sustained delivery excellence.
 
Key achievements in 2010
In line with its strategy to acquire more local customers, TCS has, since the beginning of the year, added marquee customers such as the Land Transport Authority, People’s Association, Singapore Airport Terminal Services and DBS. Its strategy for future growth will see equal emphasis on MNCs and local customers.
 
Vision
The immediate goal is to service as many local enterprises as possible and to position TCS as a global-local company in Singapore; the long-term vision is to become the number one IT company in the city state.
 
Corporate sustainability initiatives
TCS Singapore has undertaken various corporate sustainability initiatives including sponsoring prestigious local events such as the Chingay Parade and involving itself in activities such as bone marrow donations and, as part of TCS’s Diversity and Women’s Network forum, supporting initiatives for the visually impaired.
