Tata Consultancy Services gains agility and speed with open platform
Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) is an IT services, consulting, and business solutions organization that has partnered with many of the world’s largest businesses in their transformation journeys. In line with TCS’ Enterprise Agile 2020 vision, its IT group worked to create a resilient and adaptable infrastructure to support the company’s transformation. TCS IT worked with Red Hat to upgrade its legacy infrastructure with an open source technology platform. This Infrastructure Reimagination project helped TCS significantly accelerate the concept-to-release cycle and improve total cost of ownership (TCO).
CHALLENGE : Enhance agility and modernize IT
TCS embarked on its journey toward Enterprise Agile 2020 by enhancing business agility to support growth and continuously changing requirements. TCS needed to migrate from legacy systems to an open, scalable, and resilient IT infrastructure with more compute capacity, lower cost of ownership, and no vendor lock-in. TCS partnered with Red Hat to help build an open source platform that allows collaboration with other vendors and solutions.
SOLUTION : Build open source infrastructure
The entire Infrastructure Reimagination project was delivered through a scaled agile framework to collaborate better and deliver faster. Multiple migration methodologies were deployed to support scale and complexity. In addition, TCS enhanced its technology platform, modernizing legacy infrastructure with Red Hat Enterprise Linux and Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform to enable the cloud-native architecture. TCS also adopted a digital core architecture to power its application.
BUSINESS OUTCOME : Improve agility and reduce cost
With TCS’ new solution, its concept-to-release cycle has seen a marked reduction—from days to hours—allowing the company to quickly meet dynamic customer demands. And without vendor lock-in, TCS has decreased its TCO while significantly increasing compute power. It also reduced its infrastructure footprint and power consumption. With this solution, TCS increased productivity and performance while decreasing complexity.
