Success story

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).

Being adaptable in a dynamic environment and having the ability to respond to changes in an agile manner was the goal of TCS Corporate IT (Ultimatix) . The collaboration with Red Hat helped us develop a scalable, cost-efficient platform that removed vendor lock-in and enabled TCS to deploy a modern infrastructure.

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.

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.

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.

Infrastructure modernization has made it possible for our team to dynamically scale our applications in line with seasonal load. As a result, we have eliminated application downtime—and the need for standby servers. We gained superior and consistent application performance, which has delighted our end users.
