Tata Consultancy Services (TCS), (BSE: 532540, NSE: TCS) a leading global IT services, consulting and business solutions organization, has transformed QIAGEN’s GeneGlobe, a genomics-based research platform for biology and biomedical researchers, to improve customer experience.
QIAGEN is a leading provider of sample to insight solutions for customers in life sciences and molecular diagnostics. To cater to the expectations of a large proportion of researchers who are digital natives, it was looking to transform its GeneGlobe research platform. The company partnered with TCS given its deep contextual knowledge, strong digital capabilities in cloud and microservices, as well as expertise in designing intuitive, customer-centric platforms.
TCS adopted a cloud-based microservices architecture and revamped the GeneGlobe platform by leveraging industry-best DevOps practices and design thinking approaches. The new platform, GeneGlobe – Design & Analysis Hub, offers an intuitive interface, helping researchers to find the right product in just three steps.

This transformation has helped QIAGEN to boost overall digital revenue.
