Tata Consultancy Services, an IT services, business solutions and outsourcing firm, has announced that it has signed a five year global contract with Ericsson to deliver application maintenance and development services for Ericsson’s internal IT operations.
TCS has been selected as one of the two strategic partners that will deliver application maintenance services to Ericsson and a preferred supplier for application development services.
Amit Bajaj, director for the Nordic Region at TCS, said: “This engagement with Ericsson clearly demonstrates TCS’ unique value proposition as we drive more value for our European clients through increased service quality and greater alignment to their business needs. Nordic companies are increasingly looking to service providers like TCS to create a compelling value and deliver consulting, IT services & product engineering synergistically through a single global service standard using TCS’ global network delivery model.”
Nils Molin, managing director for Sweden at the analyst firm, IDC, added: “This contract signifies the trend of increased acceptance of Indian headquartered IT companies delivering complex projects in the Nordic region. TCS has been spearheading this trend by investing heavily in localising its Nordic operations, expanding its services portfolio and aggressively adding new clients. We expect Nordic companies to continue to add deliveries from offshore and nearshore centres to their sourcing strategies for IT Services.”
