Tata Consultancy Services Opens Center of Excellence in Hyderabad

By Steve Anderson June 17, 2015

Hyderabad was once known as the City of Pearls, and is still known as such in some circles today. Today, however, it's a pearl of the technology industry in India, and Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) added another pearl to the string with the opening of a Center of Excellence (CoE) at its Hyderabad location on Tuesday. But it's what the CoE will be focusing on that will likely give TCS' competitors pause for concern: next-generation technology solutions.

The CoE is said to cover 10,000 square feet at the Hyderabad campus, and will particularly focus on software-defined networking (SDN), its close technological cousin network functions virtualization (NFV) and the growth of wireless local area network (WLAN) technology. It will boast a staff of over 200 research and development (R&D) engineers, and will focus on building the next generation of technological releases in those veins.

TCS' V Rajanna, who serves as both a vice president with TCS and its global head of the technology business unit, noted the importance of the CoE in TCS' overall operations, saying “Next generation technologies will play an integral role in our constantly connected world and this CoE will work with our customers to co-create new solutions and frameworks to accelerate the product development cycle and create differentiation in the marketplace.”

It's a point that's worth noting; if anyone expects to have an edge in the upcoming market, it needs to have products ready to go to offer users by the time they start wanting access to such tools. Failure to do so opens the door to competitors; optimally, a business does best by having the user base in place and putting its product to work before the competitors even show up.  Since TCS is already regarded as a major force in not only consulting but also in IT services and business solutions, having a line on the next generation of communications technology could give TCS a real leg up in the market. Not only would it make the next generation of material, but it could also sell it to its current customer base, and do so before its competitors can even show up with other attempts at the next generation of communications tech. With businesses becoming increasingly interested in SDN, NFV, and WLAN technologies, having a presence in those markets as soon as possible means great results are likely for TCS.

TCS is in a clear position to lead the way into the next generation of technology, thanks to developments like its new CoE. It's going to take hard work and careful planning to develop the tools businesses will use in the future, but the more of these TCS can have ready to go, the better the chance TCS' client businesses will put such tools to work in current operations.
